Pants with double boa gaiters?

I'm looking at new pants this year and I'm wondering if there are any out there that have two openings in the snow gaiter for boots with a double boa system. I've heard that the 686 smarty series does, but when I saw a pair in the local shop they only had an opening for the front boa. Anybody know of a pair that has both?

I have double boa's and no holes in my gaiter for them... I just click them a few clicks and pull my pant off of it and click some more.

Fairly unneeded thing imo.....

Hell, I just reach down and turn the knob through the pants.

I was wondering if any company will ever make double BOA gaiters. My guess is not because most BOA boots have only the one front wheel. The focus BOAs are a bit pricey too so my guess is that it would not be too lucrative for companies to make a pant with double BOA gaiters. If you want a good selection of the front gaiters then look into VANS. All of their snowboard pants have it.

I know I can turn them through the gaiters, but that is just a pain, especially with gloves on.
