Snowboard Pant Materials
Snowboard pants need to take a lot of punishment, and as such are often made from hard wearing materials. Polyester is the most common snow pant material thanks to its toughness. Many brands like Burton and Dope utilise polyester for its other properties, too. Brands like Montec use nylon due to its extreme durability, while Peak Performance use polyamide for the same reason. Many brands use Gore-Tex, too, thanks to all of its great attributes, making it a popular choice all around the world.
Waterproofing and DWR
Waterproofing is the number one most essential feature of a pair of snowboard pants. Waterproofing is measured in a water column figure. The higher the number the more waterproof the snow pants are. Most snowboard pants will have a solid waterproof rating because they are in contact with the snow more. Many brands will enhance their snowboarding pants with a DWR treatment to further improve their waterproofness. GoreTex is often used by brands like Burton and Oakley to ensure high quality waterproofing, while many other brands like Dope and Montec use their own waterproof materials like Dope DryTech and Montec Shield-Tec.
Breathability and Insulation
Breathability refers to the amount of sweat which can be let through the shell of the pants as water vapour. Most brands offer a solid level of breathability along with waterproofing, but on higher end jackets, and those designed for freeriding, breathability ratings may be higher due to the more strenuous nature of that kind of snowboarding. Brands such as The North Face, Peak Performance, and Montec, focus on high levels of breathability as their snowboard pants are often designed for backcountry snowboarding.
Types, Styles, Sizes, and Colours of Snowboard Pants
Snowboard pants come in different types like classic and bib pants, as well as in insulated and non-insulated versions. Ridestore have always strived for inclusivity, and make sure to stock a wide range of sizes, too. Dope and Montec pants are available in sizes XS to XL, and in both men’s and women’s specific fits. They also stock lots of great colours, from simple blacks and greys to brighter greens, blues, yellows, and reds. And with lots of top brands on offer like Burton, Oakley, Adidas Snowboarding, Picture Organic Clothing, Peak Performance, and many more, Ridestore is the only place to shop for your next pair of snowboard pants.

When looking for a pair of pants, choosing the right type can be difficult. If you ride the resort predominantly, then a classic pair of snowboard pants are going to be ideal. Much easier to get on and off, they are available in both insulated and non-insulated varieties, and in a number of fits and styles. If you ride in the backcountry or powder, then a bib is likely more suitable as its higher rise offers added protection from snow ingress. Insulated pants also offer more warmth and are great for cold climates, but for those who are riding intensely or in warmer conditions, a non-insulated pant is likely to be fine.
