Ignore what your girlfriend says—you're not an idiot, and rocking the 686 Smarty Original Men's Cargo 3-in-1 Pant proves, to people in the know, that you're actually a pretty intelligent dude. Would an idiot sport pants that boast a 15K waterproof rating and fully taped seams? And would he ride in super-warm comfort, thanks to 260g removable fleece liner pants? We think not. He also probably wouldn't have a plethora of pockets, inner thigh vents, or BOA-lace-compatible leg gaiters to keep him organized, comfortable, and shredding with minimum fuss. So next time she questions the things you do, just remind her that you wear the Smarty 3-in-1. Can't argue with that.

686 Smarty Original Cargo 3-In-1 Pant Reviews:


I got these in green, they look great with my green/blue/white/black 686 epsilon jacket. They are quite the dynamic duo on hill. I've only worn them 3 1/2 on hill days in Mont Tremblant QC, but I'd say I've put them through the ringer. The first day was -25!!!! the second day a little warmer approaching the 0 mark and the third was around mid teens. I know -25 is way out the thermal range on these pants but I only wore "Chili" long johns underneath them and was ready to go! Maybe I'm a freak but my legs can definitely take more abuse then my torso, because I had about 5 layers underneath my jacket. The final half day was warmer still and a little rainy but I these kept me dry. They are super tough, super waterproof, super durable, warm, comfy. I think you get the idea. More pockets then I know what to do with, that are very secure by the way. Also the zip out liner, one of the coolest features I've ever seen. So far my one complaint is the button gaitors? at the bottom of the pants, they appear kinda loose, not sure if it was because it was so cold or what but they would often come undone. Not that this isn't a problem but more of an annoyance to me because I like them buttoned up (OCD? lol). Perhaps a zipper like another commenter said or even stronger buttons, not sure if that's a thing though haha. bottom line awesome stuff, props off 686 and thanks to backcountry for some quick shipping!

This is my first pair of 3-1 686 Cargo snowboard pants.I previously had Four Square (now Burton) pants and they were pretty well equipped with features and I was very pleased. The 686 pants have a great "roomy" fit for us, we'll let's call it "husky sized" fellas. The quality of the pants seem pretty good and the zip in liner is a top notch feature and are great quality lounge pants for the lodge or for your sofa. Pants have plenty of pocket space and storage.Now the downside and this might just be my personal issue. Not sure if I got the "shorty" version of the pants since I bought them in the different green fabric but the pants are long on my short build and get caught under my boot when walking around the lodge/parking lot. Tried to have them taken in but was turned away due to the way there made. The Burton's have a nice feature in raising the leg through a drawstring located in the upper pockets. Keeps your pants from dragging the ground while not on the mountain. At this point, that is my only complaint but the fit, feel, quality and comfort supersede that issue. I would definitely buy another pair but in the "shorty" version. Great pants for the cost.

I first got a pair of these 5 years ago as a uniform pant to work at Steamboat. I must have put 200 days on them in just 2 seasons from working & shredding in them everyday!! Then I gave them to a buddy & they kept him dry for a season.. Now I get a fresh new pair of Smarty cargo's every other season!! They are super Warm with that liner, I wear the liner in the car on the way to the hill, and around the house, walking the dog, etc.. The shell is super wind & water proof for all conditions!! I use these pants on the Snow machines a lot too, it's nice having lots of pockets in the backcountry!! These are a must have pant!!

Only used these pants a handful of time but they've stood up to some harsh conditions. Rode with them a couple days ago in freezing rain and never got wet and stayed nice and warm wearing just the pants with the liner and my boxers!
Only Downside to these pants is the button up gator's. A zipper would have been preferable. In all fairness though I knew before I bought these that I wouldn't be a fan of that aspect.
Worth the money!

This is my fourth pair of 686 original cargo 3 in 1 pants. They are awesome pants for all locations on the mountain in the woods, and any weather. They last forever and are worth every dime.

These are sick. They're tough as nails and fit multiple temperatures. They also fit baggy so you can carry some style to the mountain with you.
Thumbs up!
