jacket to pants attachment systems

I'm a noob so bear with me.

I have a Burton jacket that has a zipper and snap loops on the skirt. My pants are bonfire and i think they don't have anything, just normal belt loops. Or maybe they have a snap, but i can't figure out what it does.

Can i snap the burton snap loops around the beltloops? Its kinda goofy since both loops are vertical, but the spacing is right and it sort of works. The jacket loops are too small to go around my belt.

I assume i'd need Burton pants w/ a zipper in order to zipper connect my pants to my jacket.

How am i supposed to know how this all works?

I never have a need to use the pant to jacket zipper interface. I see it being useful for more powder riding, especially in backcountry. Other than that, just simply snapping the powderskirt shut around my waist has worked just fine for the past 5 years. Never once did I get snow in my jacket even after numerous falls

ya i only snap mine together in on big powder days, even then just the powder skirt alone is good enough 90% of the time

I've got a Volcom jacket and pants with the snowskirt and zipper attachment. Never got snow up my ass or up my jacket, so I'm happy.
Forgot to zip it up once and got a little bit of snow, but not a whole lot.

It's a nice little attachment, but not necessary by any means.
