My burton jacket have a powder skirt and it buttons together at the front. It also can be zipped to my pants at the back but i never do it cause its a pain in the ass to zip and it makes it so i have to tuck my hoodie or whatever im wearing under my jacket into my pants and it's kinda awkward. Haven't had a problem with it yet but if i ever start getting snow down my back its nice to have the option.

As a tall rider, I have always had issues. If I sit on groomers, which I never do, and don't ride aggressively (rare), sure, the skirt can stay down. But too often if doing any large movements, the skirt is up, and the buttons released.

Using various Burton, Special Blend, Bonfire, and other brands.

Have finally decided, time to buy something with a zipper.

Thanks to those that contributed here.

any recommendations for pant/jacket zip combo

Hola all. Looking for tips on a zip pant and jacket combo.

Am 6'3, 235. Athletic build.

Any experiences, recommendations and gripes/complaints would be great.

Main uses free riding on powder days here in Swiss/Austrian alps. May use occasionally for snowshoeing backcountry tour. Would prefer a set-up that is not super warm, and that I could use with layers. Great wind-proofing/water-proofing would be ideal.

Any tips on gear you or your friends have used would be truly appreciated. Have been reading about past models and different brands, but wanted to hear reviews about what people think about Volcom Ziptech. How durable. How dexterous.

Thanks in advance!
