Today we're going to be covering what is and what makes a women's snowboard pant. First thing first, snowboard pants are ranked from five, ten, to fifteen, to twenty thousand MM. That's the level of waterproofing. However much time you want to spend in the snow, will basically tell you how waterproof you want your pants. Women's pants also tend to have a low rise... normally fit about four centimeters below the belly button, so they're not hiked up to high Heaven like back in the 80's and the 70's. We also want to talk a very close look at the product ventilation on the inside or the outside of the pant leg. We also have flare out on the bottom, where you can make it fit over any kind of boot, make it flare out at the bottom, easier to fit over your bindings. Also, adjustable waistlines. Very important for women. You want it to fit correctly so (a)it's not going to fall down, but yet not be too tight or too constricting when you're pulling certain tricks. Adjustable waist on the inside, as well as belt loops on the outside. Very, very important. Standard zip... tends not to be a long zip, to where you don't want the crotch to hang too low. That's one style. The next style is more form fitting. A lot of women want to show off their form so therefore, you're going to have a little tapered cut in the thigh, as well as in the leg, but still accommodating the pants leg to go over the snowboard boot. And again, adjustable waist on the inside, belt loops on the outside. And again, remember: the level of waterproofing is up to you. It will affect the cost of the pant, but yet it will keep you dry. You can ride longer, you're going to stay warmer, and have a great day on the hill.
