snowboarding pants - need advice

I know there's a very long and useful thread about waterproof/breathable snowboard outerwear.

Unfortunately, I didn't think it was going to be so complicated and I don't have time to read the whole thread right now! Although, I do plan to read the thread and become an expert on this in the next month or two.

I bought a pair of Burton Cargo pants. The visual design looks good.

However, I tried the Burton Cargo pants on today with a new pair of snowboard boots and the pants felt kinda hot. My legs were perspiring simply by trying the pants on for a couple of minutes.

To be fair it is 60 degrees in Dallas and will be below freezing in Aspen.

Can you report on your experience with Burton snowpants? Do you have a favorite pair of snowpants for <$200 that you highly recommend over other snowpants?

You have the the most popular Burton pant. Decent waterproof rating and decent breath-ability rating 10k 5k. You get what you pay for. Don't forget they have vents that you want to open so that you don't get too hot. All those zippers have a purpose. I have a pair of the Burton Field pants. They have a pretty high rating for breath-ability and waterproofing 20k 15k. They retail for $259.00 but you can get them online and trusnow for $175.00 I think. On the car ride up with thermals on I just had the vents opened and I was fine. Closed them up on the mountain and all I wore underneath was a pair of hot chilis and was warm in 10 degrees with wind. Gore Tex is the best though and is guaranteed to keep you dry and its windproof but breaths excellent but $$$
