I think a few might be a litter better than others, but I think any high end gear from most company's is pretty much the same.
I've had Spyder pants that I paid $15 bucks for @ Value Village, it wasn't till I looked them up on the interweb that I found out that they were a retarded $860.
But I didn't like them as much as my high end Ripzone pants with built in RECCO ® Rescue System, that I also paid $15 bucks for @ Value Village. They were only like $100 or something.
But it does make a difference when you re-sell them on Craigslist.
Spyder snowboard pants retail $860 - $150 (maple ridge)
I have a pair of Spyder snowboard pants, I've only used them maybe 5 or 6 times.
If there was a tier higher than top-of-the-line, this would be them. They retail for $860. They are a size small, too small for me.
They have a removable bib with suspenders, just zip it out.
Paid $500 for them, so firm on $150
