The one advantage of your crappy old snow pants is that they forced you to master the stand-up binding buckle, because if you did happen you sit down to strap in you would be spending all day with a wet rear end. Take it easy and sit down all you want if you're wearing the Burton Bionic 3L Pant. Its three-layer waterproof breathable membrane and taped seams will keep you nice and dry, and a rugged build and essential features are ready to protect in the harshest environments.
What sets this pant apart from other high-performance shells is the innovative Bionic fiber that is integrated into the fabric of the jacket. This environmentally sustainable material is made with 45% recycled plastic bottles and is woven in with other natural and synthetic fibers to create a ribbed twill weave fabric that is up to four times stronger than traditional synthetics. Crucial winter features abound, including boot gaiters and water-resistant zips for keeping snow and moisture out. Cross flow venting uses inner- and outer-thigh vents to create a powerful draft, and the four-pocket design provides ample storage space.
