How are the pants supposed to fit?

I just bought a pair of H/H snowboarding pants. How are they supposed to fit? I'm a newbie, sorry. Mine fit loosely, but not baggy. And I'm a teenage girl.

They fit kinda like this. Is that okay? Or is it just personal preference?

Yeah... god knows there's never been kids wearing the latest flashy gear who have no skills. They don't take half a falling leaf run on the bunny hill and hang out in the lodge the rest of the day either.

haha yeah, i'm pretty much a beginner-intermediate, so I stayed away from the really bright colours. I just wasn't sure how the pants were supposed to look. But mine are pretty loose, just not overly baggy.

Tight enough to not fall down or get in the way during spring riding without layers, but loose enough to layer up a couple times for temps in the teens. I wear my pants the same way I wear them on the street. Not tight, not baggy, not long enough to rub the ground when I walk, just strictly for comfort.

its really comes down to your style and comfort preference.

I prefer my pants super baggy and that gives me tons of room to move around. But I wear baggy jeans as well. I have never cared for pants that actually fit correctly. If you like the way they look, they keep you warm, and you are comfortable in them then you are good to go!

I wear mine baggy just like I wear my jeans. Much more comfort especially when you have layers on underneath.

Since most, if not all, the posters are guys and we're both teenage girls, I'll answer. Wear them like you would sweatpants. Make sure you can bend and walk in them comfortably. Most of my jeans are skinny jeans so no, I won't wear mine like my jeans.

Oh dear god. Sorry most of the posters are guys. Does that make each answer already given automatically invalid. Guys no nothing about how snowboard pants should fit so it doesn't interfere with function?Really?! Because you were born with your freaking "lady parts" it automatically changes the rules. Thank you for your teenage girl wisdom.



AND in response to your question shreddinitup, H2O(s) is right. And so is everyone else. It really does come down to prefrence so long as it doesn't interfere with your control over the board. Too tight=no damned circulation.Too baggy=it's gonna get caught on something or somehow, don't ask me how, you're gonna do snowboarding's version of tripping.
