Question Pant/Jacket interfaces such as Volcom Ziptech, any good?

Has anyone tried it? I tried on some Volcom stuff but didn't notice the zippers. It seems like a great idea but how is it really? I don't mind having to buy full Volcom if it does the job. Do other companies do any pant/jacket interfacing like that?

Never any system like that. Im always out of phase with my pants/jacket. Powder skirt and a decent fitting pant does the job for me.

It can't hurt to be able to zip pants and jacket together, less snow in yo ass

Burton's AK line has the pant/jacket zip interface, as does some of Oakley's higher end outerwear. I think Airblaster has done it too. I've used it on the AK gear before, but only on really deep days or when I'm in the side/backcountry. Worked great, I had no complaints. A lot of other companies have a snap system to attach the powder skirt to the pants too.

almost every company had there own form of jacket to pants interface which all do the job at keeping snow out.

the only one i have personally used was the volcom one and it worked pretty good at keeping snow out. i used it when i went out to colo when there was a ton of fresh powder and had no problems.
