I'm new here and new to snowboarding all together. I'm working on getting some gear. My name is Allie and I'm here for advice! My first ever snowboarding trip is scheduled for a month from tomorrow so I need to find a pair of snowboarding pants fast. I'm looking for a review of the snowboard pants at that website. I have never bought anything online in my whole life. I checked out coat factories in my town but I live in Indiana and they don't have a huge selection. I figured I would have to do some online shopping. Can anyone let me know if they have ever bought pants from there? Thanks!

i haven't bought pants from christy sports but i have bought skis from them and they were legit. easy to deal with and shipped quickly. if you're looking for individual reviews on the pants best i can offer is google.

Ebay is a good option. I have purchased new ski clothes, gear and just about everything else needed for snow from Ebay. just make sure they have reputable feedback and research the web when you find something you like

welcome to the board!



I've bought from Christy's and everything went fine. Read the attached wiki on what waterproof means....it really helps to understand all waterproof is not equal



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterproof_fabric



Also check out gearbuyer.com and peterglenn.com some good deals can be had here. I got some 20/20 waterproof ski pants for $80 at peterglenn a few weeks ago.
