Default Pant to Jacket interface Cross-brands

Hey guys, Ive currently got TWC Capt Tripp's pants and jacket from 2010 I think? I am currently looking for a new coat, just something for a different color. The TWC pant and jacket zip together and then button together (optional, buttons just secure the zipper from unzipping) as well which is SOOOOO NICE! I NEVER get cold or chilled or wet, 100% dry ALL DAY long because of that interface.
I'm looking at getting the Falling Down jacket from Volcom which has a zipper on it for THEIR pant to jacket interface. Will Volcom's interface work with Burton's TWC zipper?

from my understanding they dont, they are different "proprietary" systems. Ive got volcom pants and jackets i do remember looking at some burton jackets and the zips were different.

True that.
Although I like my pants to zip together with my jacket I think it's actually unnecessary. Most jackets have waist gaiters anyway to keep the snow out. And if you still wanna be semi attached to the pants usually the waist gaiters have the button secure loops that you can hook into the loops on the pants.
I switch up brands all the time! Burton jacket+holden pants for me

you can buy a button kit from a sewing store and do it yourself really easy. cost about 10 bucks. wont be as tight as a zipper but just as good as the button system from manufacturers.
