Plenty of protection and warmth since learning to carve on the snow also means digging yourself out of it.
The Volcom Boys' Digger Insulated Pant—with 10K-rated waterproof fabric, 80g poly fill insulation, and features that keep snow from getting in—ensures that your boy stays protected when he's out carving turns, learning tricks, and taking a tumble or two out in the snow. The pant has a zipper interface that allows it to connect to any of Volcom's compatible jackets so it keeps snow from getting in at the waist, while boot gaiters keep snow from entering at the cuffs. The adjustable inner waistband allows for a customized secure fit, while the relaxed fit supports free movement. If your boy starts getting hot when post-holing up hills to build snow jumps, he can zip open the mesh-lined inseam zips in order to air out. Or if he's doing lift-served runs, he can keep his lift ticket secure in the hidden pass pocket or by attaching it the logo ticket ring. And whether taking the lift or trekking out to fresh powder, he can stash small items in the bellowed side cargo pockets.

Nice pant, runs small

- Fit: Runs small
I really like the pant, nicely designed, good quality, all the right features at a very reasonable price. However it doesn't run true to the size chart. I looked at the Backcountry and Volcom size charts. This pant is true in length, but small in the waist/cut. The size charts indicates that a L will fit a boy that is up to 5'5, 100-115 pounds with a 25-27" waist. Based on that, I expected a perfect fit, not roomy but just right. My son is almost 12, 5'1, 108 lbs with a 26.25" waist, and the pants barely fit. He can squeeze them to snap the waist, and they don't pop open, but they do not fit well. I specifically bought them because they are supposed to be a "relaxed" fit as opposed to a "regular" fit. I thought they would be a better match to his pre-pubescent body style. They are supposedly 1-2" larger in the waist than the Spyder size 14, "regular" fit pants from last season, that are also too snug on him. In fact, both pants fit exactly the same. The Spyder pants indicate that they fit up to 5'1 inches, 100 pounds, obviously better for a slimmer build than my son. Also the length was perfect, at 5'1" To fit up to 5'5" you would have to release the grow-tech hem. It would not fit a boy that height without using the growth feature.
He liked the look of the pants quite a bit, and tried to convince me that they fit ok. I like the pants enough feature-wise to exchange for the larger size and have ordered the XL. Originally I was concerned that they'd be way too long, but I doubt that will be an issue given how the large fit in length.
