Waterproof Denim

Any thoughts on these? I've seen a couple of the big brand names put them out. Anyone board with these? How's the comfort?

I mean, I just thought they were designed to look like jeans, but were still regular snowboard pants. I thought that was pretty cool, like I was looking at a pair dc made, but if they are really just waterproofed jeans, than thats kinda stupid.

Yea, I was looking at the DC Warp'd ones they had on WM a couple days ago; they looked alrite. I haven't really seen anyone rockin them too much. I looked at the pair Burton has out...and they're mad expensive.

I'm more afraid of them looking too baggy because the 686 pants I'm currently wearing already look too baggy for my liking most of the time.

I have a pair of analogs,theyre actually jeans with a removable lining in the inside.there not really water proof you'll stay dry cause of the lining but if you spend alot of time on the ground they'll definetly get wet.They were about $200 bucks but I got them for $40 which I cant complain.

a lot of companies put out a denim look. the majority of them are still a technical outerwear fabric that had been engineered to look and feel like denim(as well as corduroy, houndstooth, twill, etc.) . the dc pant's mentioned above fall into this category.

I like real boarding pants better...

Most of the time when you see someone in jeans you can tell it's their first time and they have no idea how cold and wet they're about to be.

those warp d ARE real snowboarding pants. this post isnt about jeans, its about snowboarding pants designed to look like jeans. i jumped on that WM had last week. The came in yesterday, not sure how warm they will be but they are put together real nice. just baggy enough, nice and light feeling. they achieved the denim look and everything ive heard so far is that they really perform. we'll see.

im a size 34, i got a size small even though it suggests a medium. they fit perfect. i dont know how to gauge bagginess for you, but i guess compared to most they are similar in shit-ass.
