Default durable pants?

here it is, my second season of boarding hard, and i'm on my 4th pair of pants. it seems everything else i own can hold up, except for the pants. its either a tear in the ass crack, a tear on the seam at the hip or buttons breaking off.
dc, foursquare, burton, and special blend are the brands i've tried but it seems that when it comes to pants i cant pick a decent brand. what are some solid pants that can withstand some time in the park? im willing to drop a pretty penny as long as they dont crap out after a few weeks of riding

All I've ridden in the past 8 years is DC and Special Blend and I can say from experience that they are very low quality. My brother has some 686 smarty cargos that he's been in for 3 seasons now and they still look new. I just prefer the fit of the SB to sacrafice the quality.

I'm partial to Helly Hansen myself, 3 years on them and the only messed up area is the back of the ankles (from dragging when I walk) Not crazy expensive either.

I ripped two pairs of Burton pants last year. This year I got the 686 Smarty Cargo and they are holding up great.

I still love my foursquare pants after 50+ days of riding.

my foursquare pants ruled! they kept me warm, dry and they were comfortable as hell.
only thing that sucks is that a seam blew out after only 20ish days
