Throw on this lightweight Gore-Tex pant when fresh powder in the backcountry calls.
When fresh powder in your secret backcountry bowl calls, Volcom's lightweight, breathable waterproof L Gore-Tex Pant will get you to your destination. Since you'll be working up a good sweat in trekking to your favorite sport, no insulation is needed in this pant since it will only weigh you down, and mesh lined zippered inseam vents allow you to air out along the way. And since you'll be trekking and slashing through deep powder, as well as at the mercy of whatever weather conditions you encounter, the pant's guaranteed breathable waterproof fabric will keep you dry and comfortable, while a number of features keep snow sealed out. The adjustable inner waistband allows you to customize a secure fit while a pant-to-jacket interface zipper enables you to attach the pant to any compatible Volcom jacket so snow can't get in. Stretch boot gaiters with a snap gusset easily slide over your boots and include a hook that attaches to your boot laces so they stay put.
You can carry small essentials in the zippered hand pockets, back pocket, or cargo pocket that's sealed off with a YKK AquaGuard waterproof zipper. The pant has a slightly relaxed straight-leg fit for moving comfort, while reinforced fabric at the seat and hem keep this pant lasting through many a gnarly backcountry trip.

I was amazed by the quality of those pants and got stoked to try them out in the harshest conditions. I can't wait to try the Ziptech interface with my Volcom jacket... the pockets are really cool being in diagonal orientation... I'm a skier by the way and like the fit of those pants alot, just a little bit looser than a traditional ski pant and super comfortable!
Way to go Volcom!
My new favorite pant
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Love these pants! The fit is slimmer than a traditional snowboarding pant without limiting movement or looking too tight. It has nice features without being over-engineered. Gore-tex is always nice, especially at this price!
Great job Volcom!
Best pants I've ever owned.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These pants are really really rad! The fit is perfect. Sort of slim at the knee then back out at the boot. Gore-Tex keeps you dry 100%, and the bottom cuffs are reinforced for walking around the concrete. I even slid on my knees a solid distance and felt the heat thinking I melted them, but not a scratch.
Good work Volcom!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've used these several times on pow days, the waterproof gore-tex is great at keeping you dry. Its not an insulate pant, but it allows you plenty of room to layer. For most days all you need is a base layer and your good down to 10-15 degrees F. The Zip tech allows you to connect your jacket to your pants, which stops snow from going up your back when you all in the deep stuff. It also prevents a draft from going up your back when its very cold out. I highly recommend any of the volcom pants or Jackets that have the zip tech in them. I'm 5'10" 185 and a large fits perfectly I could probably wear a medium, but I wanted extra room for layering incase it was super cold out.
Hi! I'm 5'8" with a waist 31.5". If I want...
Hi! I'm 5'8" with a waist 31.5". If I want to wear protective short under this pant, does M-size fit me well?
The medium will be a great size to get if you are planning on wearing a protective short underneath. The Large would be too big.
