32 is a boot company.

Volcom is an outerwear company (more than that, but they are a major player in that arena).

Good call

Volcom outerwear is good stuff, but aside from that, 2 of my favorite features are the Ziptech pants to jacket interface (patented, one of those really slick ones like the K2 ankle strap hinge), as well as the glove stash (open outer pocket you can quickly shove gloves into on the lift or in the trees).

If you want really good shit maybe Shred will sell you a 15 year old pair of Arcteryx for $200 but I'd be a little concerned with odor

I have a $100 pair that I paid like 60 for and they are complete shit.

I have a $400 pair that I paid about 200 for and they are exactly like a $400 pair of pants.

Happy hunting.
