Burton AK Cyclic Jackt and Pants Color Combo. What's your thought?

Hello all - I'm sure this type of questions has been asked numerous times on this forum. I recently purchase a Burton Cyclic jacket in black color with green accent zippers. I though it would be pretty sweet to match these with the Burton Cyclic pants in the acid green color to match the green zipper accent color and have a nice bright contrast color pants gainst the black jacket. Let me know what you guys and gals think in this forum.

Its would be very nice to hear everyones opinions.

The jacket is sweet, but those pants are way off from a match. If I were you id check ebay to find las years AK pants. You may find an exact match as they may pants in the same color as those zippers.

Yea. I was looking at a pair of last year stagger pants in the wasabi color, I think thats the same color as the zippers on the jacket. I could get this years cyclic acid pants for 210 versus the last year stagger at 280.

Also, any thoughs on sizing for the stagger or cyclic pants? I'm 5'10"
about 173lb 31 inch waist medium or large? I did try on the cyclic in medium, fits ok in the wasit and legs but find the length to be on the short side. Btw..the java ket in medium seems to fit me well.

Id pay the extra 70 and get the matching pants. Not only would they match, but the zippers on last years AK stuff are way cooler and match better too.

I know these might not be things I should be concern about but since I'm paying good money for quailty gear I must as well buy something that's functional and looks good.

Definitely medium. You can fit into a small if you really want to at 31 with AK fit. Large will give you the pants around ankles look.

Are you refering to the older AK model pants with the Sig fit? The newer 2012 and up has the AK fit which is slimmer and shorter in the inseam I think. The medium does fit me well in the wait and legs but I think its just tad bit short. Does the stagger and cyclic pants fit the same?

No I mean the ak fit. I am same size as you and I can make a small work. This is on hover pants. On the slim fit burton jeans the medium is still more than enough even with impact shorts.

The stagger felt looser than hover, no idea on cyclic
