Default Opinon on snowboard pant companies.

Hey everyone. I got a question, Ill keep it short and sweet.

The only company I have experience with when it comes to snowboard pants is 686. Great quality stuff, great fit, and really not to expensive (I buy gear from previous seasons to keep the price down).

What company would you consider to be comparable to 686 in quality and price. But most importantly fit. I prefer the loose baggy fit of 686 when i ride. Not so much for fashion (OK maybe a little) but honestly when i ride i like having plenty of room in my pants. I like the feeling of the pants not even being there.


Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again

I just got some Nomis pants...They look awesome, but i wear under armor cold gear underneath anyway so no liner is a non issue

I like my Bond pants almost as much as my 686 ones. Not quite as baggy but going up a size would have solved that

If you like baggy 686 pants, then fit-wise you can look into Special Blend and Foursquare.

The Volcom pants I have are working out pretty well...

I'm not sure how they would compare though.

I've always been a fan of Volcom pants, and Burton as well. For Burton though I by mid to high range. However if you like 686 stick with them cause they make sweet gear too.

thanks for the info guys.
pmoa - I dont like liners, I also always wear under armour and feel there is no need. If it is abnormally cold i may just throw some sweat pants on or something. But i think that happend once. im usually hot on the mountain
