If you’re betting on camouflage going out of fashion, don’t hold your breath; even as pant size/style fashions fluctuate year on year, the ‘camo constant’ remains. If you’re down with the brown-and-green, the Bonfire Zone snowboard pants are a fine choice - check out the video below to see the camo colourway in all its glory.
Like the Bonfire Aspect 3L jacket, the Zone pants are found in Bonfire’s ‘Platinum’ Collection. It’s home to the brand’s strongest, highest-performing gear, which is built to give you the best chance against Mother Nature. As you might expect, then, all seams on these are fully taped.
The Zone pants are rated at 20,000ml waterproofing, and 15,000ml breathability. Whether you’re raging against a blizzard or at risk of sweating buckets on a long hike, it’s got you covered. They veer slightly to the baggier side of the centre ground, and you can adjust the width of the leg hems to suit your preference. Plus, being cargo pants, there’s enough pocket space for all the accessories you could want on the hill.

Further ventilation comes from the ‘Strata-Flow’ system. The vents have been designed to not only cool you down when riding on warmer days, but also allow for a smooth flow of fresh air when hiking.
"For that price, the Bonfire Zone snowboard pants should be on the radar of any rider that’s serious about quality and comfort"
They’re built for the long haul, too. The ‘Tufftech’ construction has a bit of stretch to it, and allows for plenty of movement, but it’s robust enough to withstand everyday wear and tear better than most pants on the market - especially when you consider the extra reinforcement at the hems.
All available colourways are pretty earthy-looking, and sizes range from Extra Small right up to Double XL. For that price, the Bonfire Zone snowboard pants should be on the radar of any rider that’s serious about quality and comfort.
