Do you match Jacket & Pants?

Do you guys have matching pants and jackets? Right now I have Quiksilver set but I am really feeling a 686/Quiksilver Combo for next season and I wanted to ask, Do you guys necessarily match your outerwear?

Matching your pants and jacket is super gay, at least according to my opinion.

I have a green set, so that's what I go with, if I wear the jacket. It's up to you really, and if you feel like getting something else I say go for it!

I could be wrong, but I thought OP was talking about matching brands not necessarily color scheme. I know some brands have little things that work together nicely like one brand (I forget which one) allows you to zip the inside of your coat to your pants to keep snow from getting in between (kind of like a snowproof/waterproof gaitor). But usually it doesn't make much difference whether you match the brands or not. I know I don't. I have an Analog jacket and 686 pants.

Think you're on to something there! My set is "combinable" with a zipper at least. It's Volcom, but there's probably more brands out there doing it like you said.

I stepped up to oakley goretex gear which zips together. The obvious positive is no snow down your ass but the other positive is the extra warmth you get when you zip the top and bottom together.

Ive always been in mismatched gear, never again.

My Burton jacket and Dakine pants look like they will connect. Matching colors are lame IMO.

How does this zip tech compare with using the standard snap up gaiters that are built into most jackets?

It does the exact same thing, its just alot better. Use your imagination: snaps vs zipper.
