I'll be sporting the Mark pant and Choice jacket this year.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

I have Ripzone Trilogy pants form last season that I will wear again this season as they are pretty durable and keep me super dry. The fit is a little baggy in the legs with the waist being a proper fit. I like 'em.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

So, so far the majority seem to attest to: 686, Volcom, Burton AK, Foursquare, Special Blend, Bonfire, Analog

When I say majority I'm including what i've heard my friends say and personal experience

Did she say Strap-in or Strap-on?

I'd say if you stick to that list your chances of being happy are pretty solid.

Sessions I have had great luck with.Never an issue.Got some Foursquare pants, the Baraveto and kinda disappointing.Fit is great, but the heel where it contacts the highback on my rear foot wore through in about 6 hours worth of cruising easy groomers.Got in contact with customer service, and they said there was nothing they could do.The best part was their "solution" was to have me ride with the reinforced back heel portion over my highback and put the even thinner nylon of the gaiter against the highback.Great service!

i have had burton pants in the past and they performed well, the only bad thing being 30,000 other ppl had the same pants on the mountain...

now i have volcom and love them, cant fault them about anything(except i bought i size too big but thats my fault)

with that list posted up above you cant go wrong

I've always worn my pants over my highbacks and have never had a problem with the gaiter getting worn through

It may work, but I am doubtful.If the reinforced nylon on the backs of the heel wore through under hardly any pressure I don't hold much hope for material half as thick and not even made for durability.
