Baggy snowboard pants

Hi

I used to ride some years ago, when everyone wore baggy pants and they were easy to get. Now, it seems all companies are following the tight-fit-fad - it's ridiculous. Even DC only has a single baggy model - the Donon.

So my questions are as follows:
1) Which companies still produce baggy snowboard pants ?
2) What parameters should they have ? Is 10k/10k fine ? Will any of the baggy models have better stats ? It seems only the tight fitting ones do.
3) Are the DC Donon ( dcshoes Donon SE EDYTP00011 - DC Shoes ) baggy, or full-on gangsta ? Would you recommend this model ?

If you have any specific models you'd recommend, please post them.

Thanks.

Ok, so I googled for a while and couldn't find anything, other than the DC Donon, that would fit my preferences.

I found posts here saying that DC pants aren't very durable. They were from 2011 though, so I'm wondering if that's still the case...

Yeah, like Extremo said there should be like different fits on the websites of each brand that explain the cuts. Volcom and Burton both have these so you gotta read descriptions to find what you want. Although being a chick, I am already used to this LOL. Agree on the baggy tho, grew up snowboarding in the 90's and so these pants tucked in boots rip, rip your ass seam out, punkboy emo pants are not the thang... I fully expect kinda baggy (but not crotch down to your knees, stooopid, mobbed out gangsta) to return!

I was on the skateboard side of things in the 90's/early 2000's - and baggy was the definitely the style. I simply don't get the Shaun White tight-as-fuck pants.

To OP - check out the 686 Smarty Cargo pants. I have a pair of the women's version and they are nice and roomy, loads of pockets, removable liner, either 15 or 20k waterproofing (can't remember). I should have gotten a size down honestly, I have to wear a belt with mine...but that's just cuz I lost weight since last season and was still thinking in terms of me being 12lbs heavier. They are awesome pants though.

I've got the smartys and love them. Tons of pockets as you said. Comes with a pretty warm liner but unless I know it's going to be really cold I don't use it and just wear jeans under them.

I'm at that in between size where a small doesnt quite work and I tend to swim in a medium. I have the mediums and can get away without a belt with them velcroed all the way in. I wear a 32".

I think I got them on sale over the summer for well under $100.

I have a pair of DC Banshee, got them for $60-something bucks. They are nothing fancy... 10k/10k which I consider fine especially for the price I got them for. Has leg vents, and something DC calls "shant control" which basically can shorten them so you don't walk on the cuffs. They are not very heavy duty, but I have about 15 days on them and they don't show any wear.

As far as fit, they are definitely not tight. In fact I think the tag described them as cargo fit? Nice and loose in the legs, although not too baggy in the rear.

10/10 is the minimum I personally would go on pants; if buying again I'd go higher on waterproofing. They have kept me dry so far, but I have a feeling they may get a little wet on warm or rainy spring days...
