The pants are the straight steez. Everything you need in a snowboard pants as far as functionality goes. Vents for heat dumpage, taped seems, zipped pockets, and loops for jacket to pant botton/snap in which helps to cut down on wind/snow blown lower backs. Felt/fleece on the knees and butt for comfort. But the real hype is in the look. Now I am not a fashion boarder in no means, but I love the look of these pants. Main reason is now I have a pair of pants for every jacket since they look like normal jeans. No more miss match colors due to season/style changes. Also they are not too baggy to make me look to gangsta but not too tight to appear too Emo. Plus they have small design features that make them look like your favorite pair of worn in jeans. Move over Burton "The Jeans"....cause these pants are the straight up Jam!
