The Burton Gloria women’s snowboard pants have established themselves as a top choice for those who want to steer fairly close to streetwear when it comes to fit. Slim and low-riding, these have all the style and comfort you could ask for, but pack way more than your average pair of Levi’s in the tech department.
Dual-layer ‘DryRide’ fabric repels snow and water, with just enough give to let you explore the mountain in comfort. Despite being slim-fitting, you can pack a few extra provisions in the subtle cargo pockets, keeping you fully prepper for whatever happens on the hill.
These shell pants feature only minimal insulation, which is integrated into Burton’s own ‘Living Lining’. The insulation sits between a waterproof layer on the outside and a moisture-wicking layer on the inside, which all work together to keep you dry. That in itself is essential to staying warm, but if you tend to feel the chill - even with the mesh-lined leg vents zipped shut - then it might be best to layer up.

Like all of Burton’s women’s pants, these feature fully taped seams that are more effective and durable than the critically-taped alternative. The cuffs on the bottom of each leg are reinforced too, and they pants as a whole are covered by a one-year warranty.

For the more statuesque riders out there, the Burton Gloria pants is also available as a longer version in certain colourways - and ditto for those with shorter legs. In all but one of the seven colourways, it also comes Bluesign approved.
Are they right for a diehard splitboarder embarking on a multi-day mission? Perhaps not, but there’s plenty elsewhere in Burton’s range that’ll cater for those folks. Meanwhile the Burton Gloria pants tick all the right comfort, style and performance boxes to make them a best-seller among resort-dwellers.
