If you’re no stranger to freezing your ass off up the mountain, 686 might just have solved your problem. The Women’s specific Smarty 3-in-1 Cargo Pants are every woman’s dream come true, especially if you fancy doing some post-riding yoga.
A best seller in the 686 line, the Smarty 3-in-1 Cargo Pants are fitted and waterproof, with a lot of extra features added. The 15K waterproof rating allows you to take these things out for a lap in the deep while they also work equally well for a cruise around the resort.

With a 10K breathability, we wouldn’t classify these as an ideal option if you’re planning on venturing out in the backcountry on the regular. Hiking up the hills is hard and sweaty work, and a 10K breathability rating means these pants aren’t ideal for more demanding mountain activities. They’ll definitely sort you out round the resort though.
The 3-in-1 cargo pants have also got a BOA compatible boot system in the gaiters allowing for you to adjust your boots easily.
As yoga is slowly becoming the go-to post-snowboarding exercises, it only seems right for a pair of snowboard pants to come with a pair of yoga legging liners. Once you’re done lapping the park you don’t even need to get change: just take off the 686 Smarty 3-in-1 pants and you can do yoga wherever you please.
When winter turns to spring and things start to get heated again, you can remove the legging liners to prevent yourself from overheating. The mesh-lined inner leg vents also allow for some additional air-conditioning when things really start to get toasty
