picky about pants
For me, next to my boots, snowboard and bindings, pants are probably the one thing I consider a priority. I'm having trouble finding a new pair and need recommendations.
I was riding the 32 Blahzays and liked them a lot, but they are entering their 4th season and getting too ragged for my liking. They're heavy too (which I think is a result of of the pseudo-cloth-denim-like material the outer layer is made up of).
I'm 5'10", about 175. I'd ideally like a lighter pant, not too much insulation - this is probably the big selling point for me. I like a mid-fit, slightly baggy. Black color. 10k/10k or 15k/10k. I'm riding 90% northeast.
I went to my local shop yesterday and tried on the Volcom Nimbus and a Ripzone pant (can't remember the model) - I wasn't liking either.
What are you guys wearing? Any recommendations?
