Camo snow pants... Jacket colour? And facemask

At risk of sounding like we're on some fashion show or queer eye for the straight guy... I need some help matching my gear

Basically, I've gone and bought these:
Thirtytwo Men's Blahzay Camo Pant

A great pant and they match well with my acid green burton cartels...
However I have no idea what jacket/hoody can go with these without me looking like a tool... And no, I will not wear all camo.

On a more functional note, I've realised the Velcro airhole mask just doesn't work well with a helmet. It won't stay up and doing the chin strap over it doesn't work great. Has anyone found a way around this/a better alternative?

I'm aware tht this thread is likely a result of my cabin-fever whilst waiting for the snow... apologies.

A sort of dull orange (similar to that in the pant) might work. I probably wouldn't go for any sort of blue colour, or any other bright colour.

Yeah that's what I was thinking...
I usually like bright stuff like purple or bright yellow. Probably shouldn't have gone for these pants in that case... or the bright green cartels which clash with basically everything.

I'm probs stuck with black, green or as you say maybe a dull orange.

Haha yeah, I'm gonna be rocking blue this season , combined with black, white and a bit of red. Black would be alright, I personally wouldn't choose green, just because of potential green overkill, but it may be quite difficult finding a fitting orange.

Ah... yeah your setup sounds better. Next time I'm gonna go for black/white/blue bindings... green has not been ideal. I could always swap out my new green bindings for black and reduce the green factor.

I suspect youre right on the green:

Would look obsessed!

This looks sick but again... green everywhere. Maybe black with white sleeves?

My current jacket is an all black Sitka jacket but a bit boring...

My board is actually 2 slightly different shades of brown, with blue and white accents, so I'll probably get some white bindings.

Tbh, there's no reason you can't send those pants back if you don't like them, but obviously, that's up to you.

Haha yeah!

Tbf, that's quite nice. Yeah, you could rock with that I imagine. My dad has bright green pants, and last time, we all wore these bright orange tops... he looked like those orange and lime tic tacs.

Aha yup, that's what I want to avoid. On reflection, I think the jacket is probably too much green with the bindings and the pants. White jacket?

And I can't return pants as I've worn them a few times at indoor slopes now

Anyone else with camo pants got any jacket suggestions?
