Thanks for your input fellas,
I have decided to go with the black. I had come across a pair of tench green as well, but I believe they were 2011 models, and were 5g breathability, rather then 10g in the 2012s , so I went with the black 2012 model.
I had never really thought about how dirty that the lighter colours may get as well, after a few trips out to the hill.
Have you guys wore the cargo's by Burton? If so, do you think an XL would fit properly? I'm approx 6'2, 225lbs. I'm okay with them being a little loose .. would rather that ,then too tight.
