Default Special Blend jacket compatibility question

I have a Special Blend jacket and was wondering what brands of pants besides SB, if any, are compatible with it. Someone told me Foursquares are but I've only got a couple pairs of Sessions (which are not). Does anybody happen to know? It's always a pain in the ass trying to match up different pants/jackets that zip-in X(

Anything under the Burton umbrella (that has the zip interface) should work.

Analog, Burton, Foursquare, Special Blend.

He's looking for the zip interface, not snaps.

Thanks d00dz. Didn't know SB was part of the Burton Empire. I guess it does have its benefits.

Just to clarify, I thought "zip-in" and "snap-in" meant the same thing -- that the snaps on the jacket match up with the loops on the pants. Are they actually two different things?

Zip-in and snap-in are pretty much self-explanatory.

If the Jacket has a removable liner then it's zip.
Jacket to pant connections are: Powder skirt to pant snap system

That's an entirely different system (completely unrelated to pants).

Snaps: Classic snap+loop.
Zip: Pants have a zipper on the waistband. Jacket has a zipper on the powder skirt.

okay, indo's got it now. zip-in = zip removable liner to inner pants, snap-in = snap pow skirt to pant loops.

Yeah Burton bought SB, FSQ, Forum and Jeenyus from Fourstar a few years ago. A bloody shame it was because they kinda axed Jeenyus and it brought Burton one step closer to monopoly. Thank god for newer brands like Stepchild and Holden.

Many zipper systems will work between brands, you just need to bring in your jacket or pants to the shop and try some out, diferent brands use different zippers and can change zippers season to season. Volcom zippers are incompatible with others, as are Holden (cuz they use super quality zippers)
