Default 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?

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.

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.

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!

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.
