For when you need to go

  • If buying a new snowboard is the most exciting way to freshen up your shred gear, then new pants is probably somewhere near the bottom of the list. At the same time, it’s an essential bit of kit that all too many people cut corners with. But take it from us; a low-quality pair of pants has the potential to straight-up ruin your day.

    The good news is that Bonfire is here to give you a good-looking, functional pair of breeks that doesn’t put too much of a dent in what you’ve been saving up for your new powder board. We’re especially keen on these, the Bonfire Tactical snowboard pants.

    “The triple-stitched hems at the bottom of each leg help these deal with plenty of wear and tear”

    The outer shell of the Bonfire Tactical pants is built for all but the most savage conditions. Fully taped seams combined with serviceable specs make them appropriate for resort riding, and they’re lightweight enough to wear thermals under when it’s bitter out. The only insulation is found in the knees and bum, giving you a bit more protection when you’re taking a break or filming your mate’s cloudburst on your phone.

    Thanks to the internal waist adjustment and jacket-to-pant connection, you can get just the right fit with no need for a bulky belt. The cargo pockets are perfect for all the bits and pieces you need on the hill, and there’s crotch venting there to help you cool off in the late-season slush.

    “Everything’s built on a solid foundation, with a lifetime warranty on every pair”

    Durability is key in any pants, and the triple-stitched hems at the bottom of each leg help these deal with plenty of wear and tear. Everything’s built on a solid foundation too, with a lifetime warranty on every pair.

    There are higher-spec’d pants out there, and certainly more eye-catching ones too. But for catch-all features complete with subtle style and an affordable price tag, the Bonfire Tactical snowboard pants get our vote.

    “Crafted with the quality that comes after nearly 30 years of being in the business of snow, the Bonfire Tactical Pants are an understated underdog.

    The duality of fit and function make these pants a winning combination in terms of outerwear, while the lifetime warranty and new Bonfire Industry Standard make it a no-brainer when it comes to picking out your next pants for the season.”
