You gotta love the idea of getting to snowboard or ski in a pair of jeans. Well ... the DC Women's Viva 14 Pant is almost like a pair of jeans. It has the same five-pocket style and twill fabric look, but—thankfully—the functionality of a technical snow pant. The pant's waterproof fabric and specially engineered mesh lining have an insulating effect while the breathability and moisture management they offer keep you from getting clammy under your pants. If you need to dump some excess heat if you're trekking out to a secret powder spot, you can zip open the mesh-lined inseam vents for some cool air. The jacket-to-pant loop interface connects the pant to a compatible DC jacket to keep snow out at the waist, while waterproof boot gaiters that secure onto your boot laces seal snow out at the cuffs. You can attach your lift pass to the loop at the waist, and tie up the shoelace-style belt for a more fashionable way to customize your waist fit than the usual waist adjustment tabs. DC understands how well fashion and function can go hand in hand, allowing you to take your street-savvy style out to the hill or snow park.
