To cover the highback or not...???

Fashion wise...What do you guys think looks steeziest because you are going to be one or the other I believe??? Unless you do both styles on accident sometimes than it doesn't matter.

I have tried both ways and find I always go to "NOT" covering the highback with my pants.

When I cover my highback with my pants...I sometimes feel like the pants "might" get caught on a box or in the snow on a hard heel side turn. On hard toe side turns I sometimes can feel the pants pulling/lifting on the heel cup. Don't like those feelings so I always end up not covering the highback.

Just ranting and seeing what people prefer. I know it doesn't matter but just seeing what people prefer and end up doing fashion wise and if they think it makes them look/feel more steezy.

Thanks.

I have absolutely no idea what I go. I think they are probably both partially covered because I just strap in and dont pay attention.

With Flows, it's not really much of a choice.

uncovered, because who can wait to pull their pants up over their bindings when there's snow to be ridden!
