Sometimes only a good old-fashioned pair of cargo pants will do. Outerwear specialists 686 know this, and that’s why they produce the 686 Authentic SMARTY Cargo snowboard pants.
This sits in 686’s ‘Authentic’ line, which is all about classic styles decked out with all mod cons. Its above-average waterproof rating is achieved using ‘Infinidry’, a material exclusive to 686. Combined with fully taped seams, this makes the Smarty Cargo a fine choice for more the more adventurous rider.
“The cargo pockets aren’t too bulky, so you’ll be able to pack the essentials without looking like a commando on manoeuvres”
What really sets this apart, however, is the detachable lining. Made from uber-cosy fleece that stretches to fit, this keeps you toasty in the height of winter but can be easily removed when springtime comes (at which point you’ll also be thankful for the mesh-lined vents). It’s also ideal for slobbing around the apartment after a long day on the hill. Essentially, it’s three quality products in one.
