The Oakley Blackhawk Biozone Pants are very waterproof, high end snowboarding pants.
They are made of the Hydrogauge 20 Laminate, which gives them a waterproof rating of 20k, with a breathability rating of 15k. The 20k/15k combination is tons, so you are going to be staying dry while you are wearing these.
The pants also have fully taped seams, so no wet snow or moisture is going to be able to get in to the pants through the seams.
When the weather does warm up, or you are out hiking, you can open up the thigh vents to help get rid of any extra heat and stop you from sweating.
The leg openings have boot gaiters, which will stretch over your boot and hook on, making a nice seal so no snow can get up into the pants, and the cuffs are reinforced so that you aren’t going to wear through them too quickly when you are walking through the parking lot to the lifts.
There is plenty of room to store your stuff in the two front and two back hand pockets.
They have a medium fit, so not overly baggy, or super skinny.
