Default Burton Pants - not good at repelling snow?

I seem to be the only one in my group of friends that always has snow stuck to their pants even though I either spend less or equal amount of time in the snow (sitting down to buckle in / wait etc)

Is this typical of Burton pants? I bought one last season that I threw out. Now I have this...

Grill Pant | Burton Snowboards

That cost me more + have goretex and it's still just as bad. What should I be looking for in pants? At this point, I don't really care so much about the cost. I would rather be dry most of the time than have a frozen butt by the end of the day

Let me ask you this. Do you have rear pockets? Are they velcro? I have Burton pants too and I sit on the snow to strap in or sometimes just to wait for my friends to catch up. I find the snow is going up into my pockets and the inside of my pockets are not water proof. In the future when I buy pants I'll probably go with no pockets. Zippers in the back would be my 2nd choice. I don't need rear pockets since I don't like having anything in them when I sit down.

goretex is a membrane on the inside of the pant. It can be bonded to any outer fabric. If its bonded to something rough and texture'y then i could see snow sticking compared to something with a smooth outer surface.

How old are your pants? You could try enhancing the water resistance with a 3rd party product like nikwax or something.

onefutui2e - maybe :P

TXBDan - I think it is textury but it seems like all Burton pants are?

Tarzanman - Bought them this season and since day 1 I've had the problem

Danger Mouse - I do have rear pockets but the issue isn't isolated to that area

Never had an issue but I'm not on the ground too much either

Is the snow simply sticking to the Grill pants or is it getting through or getting wet?

ju87 - sticking but it may freeze and when it melts it'll get wet. It may not get wet within but it'll still make me cold

spacemanspiff - like I mentioned, it's been happening since I got the pants. I have not washed the pants at all


Looks like the pants I should buy is pants with a goretex pro shell...not pants with a goretex membrane
