Great looking pair of pants as this is tapered with more of a slim fit in mind. Which looks great if you are just scrolling around in a resort. But when you are snowboarding and you bend your knees and squat or sit, it gets kind of constricting. Limits your movement especially if you wear padding underneath your pants. Even without wearing padding, its still tight around the waist and butt area. I would love to make these my primary snowboarding pants but it's not too confortable.
