Rip in snowpants what to do?

so it's my first day out at northstar and I fell off the c rail which put a dime sized hole in my nice new pants. What should I do I'll patch it when I get home but I need a quick fix. Also it put brown marks anyway to get them out?

What brand are they? They shouldn't tear a hole if they're a decent pair of pants worth anything. Stitching them won't really keep the water out any more. Try to get a replacement or see if they're under a warranty or something, an obvious tear like that would definitely be grounds for a free replacement.

Also, don't try to wash the stains out with normal detergents or soaps, they'll remove the waterproofing.

i would consult BP but i dont believe rips and tears are covered under most warranties especially if you tell em you got it while eating it off a rail i would tell them you washed them and it tore or something like that

Go to a skateboard shop and get a small iron-on patch. Get one that matches your color a little bit so it doesn't look weird.

I have an old pair of burton outland pants that got a tear from having my keys in the pocket... while i went through a fence..
Anyway, I put a spitfire patch on there and 10+ yrs later its still works great.

The brown marks.. yer on yer own there.

Thread + shoe goo over the stitching works wonders.

I totally ripped a huge hole in my Special Blend pants over New Years at Stowe by catching the top of a tree that was poking out while bombing one of the runs. Sucks because they're GoreTex too. I'm gonna do the thread and seam tape route myself once the season is over. Fortunately I'm a gear addict and own like 20 pairs of pants that I definitely don't need so it hasn't effected me but it still blows

Carry some duct tape in your bag for a quick temporary patch. The iron-on patch should work well long term.
