The Burton Boys' TWC Throttle Pant brings the style and tech of the White Collection to your sub-adult shredder. DryRide awesomeness and Thermacore warmth keep him comfortable so he can rack up laps and then hike for those last few shots at his favorite jump even after the lifts are closed.
Pants look cool, most important factor to my 11 year old son. My instinct was to order him a medium, the size chart put him solidly in a large. The large are too big. I would've exchanged them for a medium but the 11 year old thinks they look even more cool all baggy and slung low - ugh! I think they look like he's going to get a lot of snow down his pants... Also, should've read more carefully - these rate very low on the 'waterproof' scale. Have yet to see how they'll perform on the slopes, no snow in PA yet.
Not to tight. Dryride, taped seams and thermacore insulation will leave him out for hours no lunch break for this kid. The slightly baggy fit leaves you plenty of room for layering and the leg lifts in the back helps to keep the bottoms as good as new no more dragging pants on the floor. And for that unexpected growth spurt you are covered with the Room to Grow system
I got these in the stripe for my 11-year-old. He is a size 12, and the only size option for that is 10/12. I was a bit concerned because often mixed sizes (i.e., 10/12) tend towards the smaller size, in this case, size 10. But they fit great! Not too long or short. Nice system for fitting the waste with velcro strips inside. Maybe they'll fit next year too!
