Burton Society 2018-2019 Women’s Snowboard Pants Review

Social butterfly

A perfect match for the Burton Jet Set jacket, the Burton Society women’s snowboard pants offer resort-friendly specs and style at a great price. These sell like hot cakes every year, and the 2018/19 season should be no different .

Thanks to the ‘Living Lining’, the Burton Society pants adapt with the conditions (within reason, of course – as good as they are, if you spend a lot of time hiking lines in the backcountry then you’ll probably be better off spending a bit more on techier pants).

In colder weather, the fibres in the taffeta lining contract, and warm air is held close to your body for longer. When the temperature rises, they contract to let that air escape, thus cooling you down. Pretty clever, and it helps to compensate for the relatively pedestrian waterproofing and breathability specs without pricing you out.

While these are low-profile, they’re not just shell pants; lightweight ‘Thermolite’ insulation keeps you warm without cooking your legs. You might still want to wear thermals depending on the conditions, but it’s a solid foundation for a comfortable day on the hill. Plus it’s made from 40% recycled materials.

The Burton Society pants are fairly slim-fitting, with no bulky cargo pockets disrupting the style. That means you’ve just got the standard two pockets for your bits ‘n’ bobs, but the zippers will keep your essentials safe on the mountain.

On the back of each pant leg you’ll find a loop, roughly in line with the top of your boots. When you’re walking through town, you can roll up your pant legs and keep them up by connecting a strip of material to this loop. Don’t worry too much if you forget, though, as the cuffs are made of hard-wearing Cordura and can take a beating from time to time.

These come with a lifetime warranty, and given their proven popularity you can rest assured that the Burton Society women’s snowboard pants will last the distance – and they help your budget stretch further to boot.
