So I thrashed my 2009 AK 3L Burton Hover Pants. I bought them last year as my staple Gore-tex pants. The pants that would get some snow days when I’m hiking, but also to be used snowshoeing, snow camping, shoveling the driveway, etc. on shitty, snowy days.
I only probably got 6-7 days of actual snowboarding in them, but they had the wear. Duct tape kept some slashes on the thighs shut after a few close-calls in the trees (yah I like it tight).
I was worried that Burton wouldn’t help me out as I’ve heard there’s been some questionable calls with some gear over the last few years. But W48 came through like a champ. Full review to come soon.
