The Aston pants offer the highest level of wind and waterproofing available thanks to the GORE-TEX® 2-Layer Dobby material, fully taped seams and YKK® AquaGuard® zippers. Volcom installed their signature Zip Tech® interface to allow you to zip the pants to any compatible Volcom jacket to create a complete seal against unwanted snow entry, and a Stone Butt Patch to boost durability and allow you to sit in the snow without getting your butt too cold.

GORE-TEX® - GORE-TEX® fabric is incredibly durable, waterproof, breathable, and totally windproof. A single square inch of this fabric contains 9 billion microscopic pores—each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop, but 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapor. Water can’t pass through the fabric, yet perspiration escapes with ease. You’ll find this next level molecular construction on all GORE-TEX® fabrics.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
YKK® AquaGuard® Water Repellent Zipper - A smooth, durable, water repellent zipper that enhances the function and performance of your high quality garment.
Zip Tech® Jacket to Pant Interface - Nothing lowers motivation faster than snow jammed down your pants and up the back of your jacket. A V-Co patented invention, the heavily imitated jacket-to-pant interface allows you to zip the powder skirt of any Volcom jacket to any Volcom pant, keeping snow out and heat in with no restriction of movement. Falling has never been more enjoyable.
