Default Snowboard pants question(Embarrassing)

I wanted to know do you members when snowboarding,where nothing but underwear under your snowboard pants or do you were jeans/pants.

I've got into an argument about this,saying why add extra clothing when you have snowpants with 10mm water Resistance to just make it difficult to move and turn.

Todays snowpants keep you warm


Just trying to find out if I'm the strange one for wearing nothing but underwear under my snowpants

thanks

I know a lot of people wear long underwear, I just wear some under armor spandex boxers. I do have some meat on my bones so I dont get cold though.

They make special baselayer and mid layer clothing to wear under your outerwear. Nothing else should be used. definitely not jeans or cotton sweatpants

Very true. Never wear anything cotton under your riding pants. I wear polarmax 100% polyester, lightweight baselayers. In essense it's like wearing spandex. the midweight baselayers are a little baggier...

This.

But it seems like a simple matter of, if you're cold, wear something under, if you're not, don't. No right or wrong here unless you wear the wrong kind of material like Extremo is saying. I don't know anyone who would wear extra clothes unless they had to for warmth, so I guess I don't really see the point.

For the record, I only wear underwear under my pants, but my last ride was in 55* weather.

This page (from Dick's Sporting Goods, no less) has a good description of layering and the different materials...

This new clothing is nothing but 100% polyester marked up 100 to 1000 percent.

If you are warm then there is no reason to wear something under your pants. I have gone out in just my polyester boxers under my pants. Most of the time I wear some of the Starter base layer poly long underwear.

Never wear cotton. It is designed by nature to hold water and water makes you cold. The best material is merino wool but that stuff is expensive. Polyester works well and is cheap as long as you don't get sucked into brands like Under Armor.
