Snowboarding belts?

Was just wondering if anyone here wears belts when they snowboard. I was thought I would need to wear one when I couldn't find the velcro straps on the sides of my new pants. After finding though it got me thinking if belts were even practical for snowobarding.

So ya do you or don't you and if you do what kind/which one do you use?

I wore one last season but I'm gonna use suspenders this year.

It kinda became a pain if I needed to tighten the belt

Yup, i always wear one. I've been using the 686 tool belt for the past 5 or so years. It's nice having the tools always at hand.

Did you guys ever feel like the belt dug into you to much when you were hitting jumps or just carving hard?

Yup, belts are a win. Spacecraft makes the most durable in my experience. Good company too.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I do not wear a belt but a friend of mine does. He had the tool belt, it was the coolest thing having tools at hand to tighten things!

Nope, especially seeing as you'll have some sort of shorts or long underwear on as well as one or two shirts tucked in
