pants just arrived. tried em on and they're SICK! they fit me perfectly, even had to tighten up the waist a little bit. These definitely run big. the materials and technology put into these is amazing. im wearing the liner right now and it's like the best pair of sweats i've ever owned haha. im pumped for the season to start! Can't believe I got them for less than $55 they look like they've never been worn!

Cool,

I know someone said they are a little warm in the spring, but if you just wear some boxers without the liner and unzip the vents they will be fine.

Good score on the price.

They're hot with the liner in them. I was walking around the house in them for a liner in just the shell and compression shorts with the vents open. They were still pretty warm (it's in the 70s) but I could feel the air moving in through the vents with every step. I think they'll do fine both in warm and cold weather

I never wear the liners, I pack those for lounging afterwards and drinking. I always have been fine wearing them with just a pair of Under Armor Cold Gear 2.0 (their medium weight gear) and keeping the vents zipped. I've done this in weather as cold as -15F on the "peaks" of Sunday River and Killington.

I wore them last year in Stowe in March when it was like a freakish 80F+ and I died. Actually, I was wearing the LTD 686 destructed denim but same deal. Way too much pant for that weather. If you were good @ 70degF, you'll be good in all conditions.

Happy Shredding.

Well I'll probably use the liner most of the time in the middle of the winter but start and end the season without it. I live in MN so it gets pretty cold here and I've never really snowboarded in weather over 40 so I shouldn't have to worry about them being too warm
