Default Some dumb questions about 686 pants.

Have the Smarty Rift pants, which has the insulated liner. What do you do with this liner? Do you stuff it into your boot? Above your boot, over your boot? Seems like it should go inside your boot, then the elastic inside goes over (with the hole for the boa) and then the outer layer drops over.

Also, when strapping in, do you put the outer layer of the pants inside the binding, or over the binding.

Like I said, dumb questions, but..

I think its all choice. I always stuff the liner half way into my boot where its comfortable(my liner goes all the way down to the mid of my feet and if i left it there it woul hurt)

I put my pants over the binding over the one that stays binded.

i just role the liner up above the boot because I hate having anything tucked into my boots. I pull the gaiters on the outside of the boot, putting it inside would make no sense. I always put the pant legs over the highbacks, but that's just my preference.

I'm not a fan of the removable lines in 686 "3-in-1" pants/jackets. They move around separately from the outer piece and would just be an annoyance to me. If you really want more warmth, just go with built-in insulation or shell with a sewn-in liner.

on both pairs of 686 smarty pants I have the liners have plastic buttons about 1/3 way up the leg that allow you to fold the liner back and button it so it stays above the boot. Works Awesome!

Though to be honest I haven't worn the liners much, once in Alaska and a few times in Colorado I think b/c typically they make me too warm. I prefer a pair of synthetic thermals and use the 686 liners as lounge pants for the house during the winter. The wife likes 'em too
