Don’t be the one at the mountain riding in jeans. Snowboard pants are a crucial element in protecting yourself from a variety of weather conditions. Shop snowboard pants and bibs from the top brands in the industry, check out the latest styles, and find your fit at Tactics.
Bibs or pants, that’s the first question you should ask yourself. Both have their upsides and drawbacks. With bibs, you have more coverage for when you’re riding in deep snow and have no need to worry about pulling them up. Just adjust the suspenders and get to shredding. Traditional pants offer less coverage, but can be more convenient. They’ll take some of the bulk out of your fit so you have more mobility. Pick which one is best for you and narrow down your decision.
For riders who prefer to layer or ride in warmer climates, shell snowboard pants will let you dictate how much insulation you want. If you run colder, then insulated pants are the best choice. They come with enough warmth for most situations, but still leave enough room for a thin base layer for those bone chilling cold days. We carry tons of each type from brands like Volcom, 686 and Airblaster so you can find the pants or bibs that suit you the best.
Another consideration when choosing bibs and pants is how much waterproofing you really need. When you ride deep powder or ride wet snow frequently, more waterproofing is your best bet for staying warm and dry. GORE-TEX material is the ultimate choice for waterproof gear. However, that kind of protection isn’t always necessary. For many riders, especially those who stick to riding in the park, water resistant pants and bibs will offer plenty of protection.
Whatever type of snowboard pants you need, you can find them at Tactics. If you still have questions, be sure to hit up our customer service team so they can keep you stoked.
