Default WTB Bright Blue Snowboard Pants - On a budget

Hi!

I`m looking for bright blue snowboard pants, but I can spend up to $100.

I really like the Bonfire Radiant Pants in Sapphire color, but they are discontinued I guess.

I`ve also been looking online and so far I found these ones below, that seem to be ok. Anyways I`d like some opinions about them and sugestions about others!

Sessions Gridlock Pants. Do these really shine like in the picture? I actually don`t quite like that kind of shine that is in the picture.. remembers me of duffel :S

i like sessions stuff. they hold up really well for me. Im going on my 3rd season with my zoom pants (about 30 days a year) and they seem to be holding up. It may be because i dont wash my outerwear ever. but overall im happy with them. i own two pairs of sessions pants and one jacket.

see if you can find last year's ThirtyTwo Blahzay cargos. Solid pant, retails around $149 but you should be able to find them under $100 if anyone has them in-stock.

Really hard to find last season`s Blahzays anywhere on the internet... And the ones I find are all 149, 159.

I`ll keep trying to find, but if I don`t, I might stick to the Sessions Gridlock.

CMSbored, how warm are your Sessions Zoom pants? I saw online that they have 80g insulation. Desn`t it get too warm?

I don't know what size you need but my local shop has the XL Size XL available at Eternal for $72 or size Small available here for $89.

But yeah, it looks like the blue ones from last year are hard to find. plenty of the khaki/sand or black available for $100 or less though.

Well, I`m 6 feet tall, 160 lbs. Usually wear 32 x 32 in normal street pants, 34 x 32 with a belt. I have some impact shorts that I`ll be using, so I might go up one size, sticking to size L. Wonder if a Medium will still fit woth the shorts on.

As for the color, I`m looking for blue, since my jacket is already black.

Do you have any other model or brand in mind?

Edit: I found these Airblaster Finisher Pants in bright blue. They look good... do you know whether they perform as good (fit, waterproof, breathable, quality, toughness, etc)?

Yeah the XL will be way too big I wear a 36 x 32 in regular pants and the XL is pretty large even on me.

Those Sessions ones look pretty comparable in terms of style & feature, although it doesn't say what they're rated for water resistance/breathability.

No experience with the Airblaster, I just tossed out the ThirtyTwo idea since I have those pants and they are pretty nice.

686 :: Cargo

686 Original Cargo. The Cyan is a staple colorway every season. These pants are awesome, rocked them for several seasons now.

The Sessions` Gridlock pants are 15k/10k bre/wat respectively. Good rating indeed. I just wonder if the royal blue on those pants look as bright as the cyan or Blahzay`s blue...

The 686 original cargo`s would be the best for me, because they already come with the removable insulation layer. However, their price goes way over my $100 budget (those are $200).

If only I could find the blahzays at 100, 110. Or even the 686s!

And I think that from now until the end of next season the prices will only go up, correct?
