Thank you for your answer. I hoped that them would be more durable. Too late now, since I already launched the order. Anyway, I only ride like 15-20 days in a season, so I should be ok in the durability field for at least 4 years. Didn't read anything about not being very waterproof, maybe I wouldn't choose them if I knew that, regarding that the coming season would be my second one on a snowboard.
