My son LOVES these pants! I had read other reviews that these pants could be ripped easily, but with Dogfunk's great lifetime warranty guarantee, we have just saved all of our paperwork to return for a new pair if we ever have any problems. These pants are the coolest thing to see on the ski slopes. When we were skiing out in Colorado several people had them, and they literally look like all denim jeans. Also, these pants are extremely waterproof, nothing will get through, which is great for the slopes closer to the east coast where the air is much more damp.
