I'm really ready to have my own pair of snowboarding pants after borrowing my sister's for the past few trips up to the mountain this season. I've already spent a lot of money buying gears this winter, and I'm a bit strapped for cash.
Browsing the shops I noticed that anything of quality (ie, with at least 10k waterproof rating, and insulation) are at least $85 dollars. I'm just wondering... would prices go down any further if I wait until the season ends...? Or should I just make the purchase now as prices for good pants aren't going to go down much?
Craigslist? Ive seen pants there for like 20 bucks(got a pair of sessions 10k used) if you dont mind used. Or the sale thread here. Otherwise I always scan gearscan.com But department stores like sports chalet usually sell winter gear cheap in the summer.
I'm gonna get the Bonfire Rainier pants. Looking through the threads on this forum, looks like Bonfire generally are of good quality. And $85 for 20K/20K waterproofness and breathability seems to be an excellent deal.
Quick question about the sizing of Bonfire~ I fit fine on in the XS Burton Fly pants, which is weird because I'm usually a size 4 in regular pants. So I'm not sure if I should be ordering the Bonfire pants in XS or S? Maybe I should go with the S since I'm thinking of wearing impact shorts underneath too.
