Snowboarding pants

Hey guys, i really need new snowboarding pants this year because my old ones are too small. I really want pants with built in suspenders so that they can be loose in the waist and not fall off my ass. I would prefer them in black or gray. Any suggestions?

Just dont really buy anything with under 10k waterproofing. If you arent in the rockies you may want to step it up to 15k or more...10k is really bare minimum though.

i really don't want you guys to take price into consideration because the newest version may be expensive, but i might be able to get a good deal on last years model at my local shop. So ya, just list any pants that you know are good and have built in suspenders. thanks

686 acc syndicate pants. Really beefy with beefy suspenders. 2010 Analog Gauge pants are really good, a little slimmer though. Last year these were the Analog Byrne pant, you might still be able to find them

I just bought a pair of special blend annex which have built in boxers so that you can wear them baggy and low without getting your ass wet

Yup, 15K minimum in pants with all seams sealed. Don't pick up any pants that are just critically taped. Other than these specifics, pants are pants, just pick the ones that fit you the best.

Yup, just find some pants that fit what you want. You have already specified you want suspenders which already limits you, think of some other things you want , and other things you need(15k+ waterproofing/breathability) and then just pick the one thats most comfortable and fits your style.

Some other things to think about:
Fit - Pants come in everything from super tight and short to super baggy and extra long legs and everything in between...figure out which one you want.
Features - Do you want pants that come with 2 layers? Just 1? Do you want pants that have straps that pull your leg portion up to keep them out of the mud/snow when your trucking around off your board? How many pockets? Do you want pants that have an elastic band fit, pull straps to tighten, or just regular pants with a belt?

By the time you figure out what you want out of all those you will be limited to only a few pairs
