When launching an outerwear line embellished by the Led Zeppelin logo, you really ought to get it right. Luckily, thanks to their rock-n-roll and skateboard-heavy image, Sessions is probably your best bet when it comes to combining outerwear with one of the best-known rock bands out there. They’ve nailed it quite frankly, and we’re very much stoked on the Led Zeppelin Squadron Pants.
It’s no surprise that Joel Gomez, founder of Sessions, decided to go with a Led Zeppelin collab for winter 2020. After all, we’d like to think that the vast majority of snowboarders out there have, at one time or another, charged down the pistes with Jimmy Page’s guitar riffs blasting through their earphones.

Fully seam-sealed, boot gaiters and ranking at 15K on the waterproof scale means that the Squadron Pants will do a very good job at keeping the elements out. Whether you’re taking a hit like a snare drum or ploughing through knee-deep powder fields, the pants will keep you dry.
For warmer days and more strenuous activities (like… climbing a stairway to heaven, maybe), it’s also useful to have a pair of pants that breathe (that’s the case here). Speaking of staying cool and comfortable, when things start to get extra toasty there are also mesh-backed inseam vents here you can open up to let in some fresh air.
A regular but slightly roomier fit, with slight articulation at the knees, add to the comfort of the Squadron Pants. The slight articulation makes tweaking into those shifties that little bit easier. What’s more, if you take a hit, there’s a bit of insulation at both the bum and knees to soften the landings (they also add a bit of warmth for those long, cold, ascents on the chairlifts).
