Default White pants.... ya ok

So I was dumb enough to purchase white snowboard pants. Figured since they were waterproof 20 000 - tornado proof 50 000 that they would at least repel the crud off a little better. They don't.

The pants look like WWII.

Will the marks come off after 5 trips then a wash? Or should I wash them after every trip? I find that washing snowboard pants is kinda pointless in the 1st place though.. at least not that often; so I think I'm kinda screwed haha.

I like the idea of ''battle scars'' but I don't want to look dirty either y'know :P

What do your white pants look like after a season or two?
- Plz just tell me they turn to a cool shade of gray haha.

Thx!!

I have a white pair of AK 2L's. 6 trips in plus some urban sessions and they are pretty dirty. I haven't really bothered to wash them though, because I assumed they'd get dirty as hell when I bought them.

Last year's Burton Rock Salt pants, half price. Got them cause they were the only ones that matched with my green/white coat lol.

I think I'm just gonna go battle scars.

I used to wear white until I realized how dirty they got. Add to the fact that washing makes them less waterproof...not good.

Now I wear black.
