Not only is the Burton AK 3L Hover Gore-Tex Pant loaded with more features than a new German luxury sedan, but it offers the fully guaranteed waterproof breathable protection of Gore-Tex Three-Layer Fabric for total impermeability and battle-tank durability.
Three-layer Gore-Tex fabric is lightweight yet super-tough to resist rips and tears, and it's guaranteed waterproof and breathable for ultimate protection from the elements. Fully taped seams with Gore Seam tape prevent moisture from seeping in through the cracks. The AK fit features engineered articulation to allow for total freedom of movement and it allows room to layer underneath without being baggy or bulky.
Crossflow Venting thigh vents and zippered inseam vents promote airflow to dump heat when you're huffing it to the peak. Microfleece lining at the fly and waistband keeps you comfy throughout the day. Boot gaiters with cuff-to-boot interface keep your feet dry and ghetto slits make your pant legs sit just right on your boots.

Seriously bulletproof pant. More of a fitted pant, (not like the Burton Poacher for example), but I like the fit for range of movement without having to worry about being restricted if you have to sink low over a bump or after a hard landing. Not a drop of water got through these guys after riding in the Pacific NW and when the boot gaiter ripped, the lifetime warranty got me a new pair in the new model year with my choice of color. Good for layering and the felt lined pockets are much more comfy on the hands then previous years models. No problem yet with wear and tear on my new pair yet (after many days on the snow at Snowbird) and they're holding up lamination-wise much better.
Spent 3 days snowboarding in Beaver Creak last week during a 30 year snowstorm. 3 feet of heavy snow meant lots of time buried in it. I wore these pants with a heavy base layer stretch pant. Never got cold, never got wet, and they were as comfortable as wearing your favorite jeans. My sales person helped me get the right fit and spent almost an hour on the phone prior to selecting this pant. She was spot on and they're probably the last snowboard pant I will own.
