snowboard pants
Anyone have more/less success with certain brands of snowboard pant? I've always stuck with the snowboard-specific brands because I like the looser fit (NOT the extra-baggy look, but simply looser).

My current pair (ThirtyTwo Blahzay) are just about out the door. Starting to fray and I broke both ankle cuff zips this weekend. Looking into a new set - preferably 10k/10k. Insulation doesn't matter too much.

Anyone have any recommendations/what are you wearing?

TNF are pretty cheap and durable....

I'm a big fan of 686. Got a pair of 686 Smarty OG 3-in-1 cargo pants at the beggining of last season and they have been holding up great. Like you, I like looser pants without being baggy. These fit the bill. I also prefer pants with liners because I don't like wearing multiple layers. I wear these with just boxer briefs underneath and have never been cold. I was even wearing them with just boxer briefs last weeked at Vail with -15 windchill. Still not cold. However, the liner is removable for those warm spring days. Lastly, they come in a tall size, which is huge for me because regular length pants are too short.

I just wear your standard burton pants.

Check out the Zimtstern Space Pant. Swiss brand that's available in the US with a great cut and very functional. I've been using them for years now and they've always held up great. Loose fit on the border to mildly baggy. I swear by them.

Second the Burton pants recommendation. Got a couple pairs and they are hard-wearing, and do the job well.

I have a pair of Oakley pants that are pretty awesome. Havent had them in sub zero weather but down to the low teens I can get by with a good set of long johns under the pants and they are gore tex.

Actually, I've used a bunch of different pants. And on a whim two years ago I bought some Firefly yellow straight leg snowboard pants for about $40 on an end of season sale. Thought I might get 20 days out of them. So far I've got about 70 days on them and they're going strong! :yahoo:

Sometimes the cheap brands suck, but sometimes they do just as well... In fact I like these better than any other pants I've owned to date.

arcteryx and outdoor research have life time warranties on there products and is what I use most of the time along with TNF cause I have 50% off. If you are really about to spend 400 - 500 on burton 3L gore pants I would look at true MTN gear companies for the same price.

This is my current snow pants I have, 686 pmanual and Poriginal smarty, Rome Insurrection 15K rated, OR Vanguard Pants and TNF Free Thinker.
