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

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
