    Comments about 686 Smarty Original Cargo Insulated Pants:

    Awesome pants, I had mine for 3 seasons and they still in usable condition even after a lot of crashes and washings. Now I want new pants and choosed them again.
    They are very warm and comfy and fits me great.
    I used my old Smarty for snowboarding and snowbike and weather here is cold enough so I never used them without lining, but I like that option anyway, adds a lot of versatility. If it's get too hot you can use ventilation which works extremely well even with lining in and especially when you ride down the hill.

      Comments about 686 Smarty Original Cargo Insulated Pants:

      I'm a skier and wanted some pants that fit a little looser than the normal ski pants but aren't an overpriced thin plastic-baggy poor excuse for ski pants (AKA Armada). These are legit and should last for a while. Seams are well stitched and outer material is thick. The removable liner is pretty cush and nice to wear by itself when you're just chillin waitin for snow to fall. Should also be perfect for the those ridiculously cold days where your still sweating your nads off and need some moisture wicking so you don't freeze halfway through the day. I'm a freeride, all mountain, anything and everything skier. Not a park rat but I'll hit it if I'm in the mood. I'm a more "hidden chutes away from the tourists" kinda skier who needs thoses extra cargo pockets that can hold all my days provisions and foliage with thick material that can survive the tree runs. These are unpretentious pants that still look good and get the job done and are perfect for the skier who lets his skiing ability speak for himself rather than his clothes. It's not like you're lookin at yourself when your skiing anyway (unless you're one of THOSE skiers). I got a medium and they fit comfortably loose enough for me at 5'8" 165 lbs. I usually wear 32" waist, 31" inseam.

      Comments about 686 Smarty Original Cargo Insulated Pants:

      This product is suited for both warm and cold weather applications. If it is above 15 degrees, I don't even wear a base layer. If it gets on the chillier side, a base layer may be needed. The pants are super comfy and with no restrictions when riding. They keep the fluffy stuff from getting inside and keep you dry all day. Only negative is that I am 5'8" tall and the 32-34 waist is perfect but the length is about 2 inches to long.

                  I've only rated this a 4 of 5 because my husband and I purchased them before the weather cooled off and he hasn't been able to wear them in the proper climate. We were both really impressed that the inseam and size are true to fit size. The pants are still lightweight but a tad heftier due to this pair having a lining which is worth having! And With the lining it wasn't as heavy as I would have imagined. They seem solid and warm, the pants have the under leg zip vents and the fabric seems durable, warm, waterproof and breathable. On the waist there are adjustable velcro strips to give the pants an even more comfortable fit. The pockets are seccure, and there were quite a few color choices, and even the shopping was faster than we had expected. Overall we are extremely impressed!

                      I got these a bit ago, prepping up for the upcoming season. Did tons of research into a new set of pants and came across these. These pants make so common sense. Stoked to rip up the hill when the pow comes, but just sitting in just the liners themselves in the meantime is bliss. :D Could use a bit less velcro, but that's an easy fix by taking them to the tailor and replacing with buttons, like I did my jacket from another company.

                      Will try to follow up once the season starts.

                      These are the most versatile snowboarding pants I have ever owned. Not only do they fit well, but with the removable inner pants that zip into the waistline, you stay warm, dry, and comfortable, even when its storming. Then when your day of riding is done, you just unzip and remove the shell pants, and lounge around in the stylish inner pants. For not so cold days or spring conditions, just remove the inner pants, and use the vented shell pants. Would recommend them to anybody.

                          Great gear for the price. Comfortable fit with just enough warmth even without the liner.

                            I wore my last pair of smarties every day for 2 winter seasons and were still going strong. They are warm I dont usually need the lining pants but still breath well on hot days with vents. Could have a better waterproof rating but only noticeable in the rain. All in all i just bought my 2nd pair of pants for this season.

                              These pants are super warm on the coldest days with the liner. Very breathable on warm days with out the liner. I really love these pants

                                I love these pants. They are extremely comfortable whether sitting in the day lodge or at the top of the mountain planning your route! I have never felt/seen any leak-through on them. The liner is awesome. When you're done for the day and don't want to wear the main pants in the car ride home, just zip off the outer layer and wear the liner as sweats. Incredible versatility. My previous pants had awkward pocket access. Not a problem here. They are built to keep water out, but let you get your hand in when and where you need! I STRONGLY recommend these pants!

                                I use the pants for everything winter. Ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, sledding with my daughter and shoveling. I think these pants are awesome!
