If we know anything, it’s that nothing beats a nice waterlogged pair of snowboard pants. Oh how we delight in the feeling of melted snow marinating our butt cheeks like a chilled wine, infusing the flavor of pain and numbness deep into our core as we cling to the chairlift in quiet exhalation. This is truly a feeling to be savored. It’s a wonder a company like The North Face can stay in business, what with products such as the Spineology Pant and it’s advanced storm proofi ng qualities like 3 layer Gore Tex and fully taped seams. Furthermore, it seems features like the Chimney venting system and Stretchvent gaiters would only alleviate the accumulation of an icy glacier on your ass, so you could focus more of your effort on snowboarding. Weird.
