Default Jean snowboard pants

What's your guys opinion on the jean style snowboard pants. I've seen some from Burton, 686, Holden, etc. I'm kinda 50/50 on 'em. I've seen people riding in them but...ehh. Does anybody have any experience with them?

--- Eehh, i think they are personally lame. My buddy bought 2 pair, normal cut and a skinny jean style... I hated the way they looked and he couldn't fit either of them over his boots. Just a stupid fanboy thing... IMO of course.

Yeeahh...part of me is feeling the same way. I think I'm stuck between how comfortable my casual jeans look/feel, thinking that will translate over to snowboard pants and another part of me feels like denim has no place on the hill!

almost bought a pair just this week but being kinda old school and preferring a baggier (but not thuggish) fit, the "normal" and "slim" cut jeans just don't appeal to me.

I was on the fence about the holden genuine in grey or whatever, and I think 686 made a pair that looked alright, or the Burtons which I got a deal on but ultimately I knew they weren't going to fit they way I want my snow pants to fit, they were going to fit the way "fashion" today dictates they ought to fit. And also they didn't have cargo pockets.

There were a few pair of denim or denim-like material in cargos but as I started looking at those options and finding some more "textured" pants, I ended up getting 686 Smarty textured in grass colorway, and also the Burton Hellbrook Premium in houndstooth.

It's a personal preference thing I guess, but....I'll pass! Come to think of it, the 2 people I saw with jean snowboard pants were beginners. The first guy, had jeans and a 12/13 gnu riders choice and he needed help strapping into his bindings and the other person was a kid who was riding with both arms stretched out as if he was doing a high wire act. Again....I'll pass!

Have the 686 Levi's version, which are baggy and decent. However, they're pretty heavy....don't wear them much.

Not to offend anyone, again, it is personal preference. But the more I think about jean snowboard pants, it reminds me of the guy stepping onto the basketball court looking like he just signed a max 5yr/$80 million dollar deal, dressed in all jordan apparel, and can't make a f'n lay-up!
