The Sessions Achilles Snowboard Pants may look like an ordinary pair of snowboarding pants upon first glance, but it will not take long for any owner to realize just how amazing this product truly is in every category. For starters, Sessions took high quality 100% Polyester material and treated it with DWR coating, to make sure protection and durability are never an issue. To further boost comfort, the seat and knee areas of the Achilles feature ThermaGrid fleece and a double zip mesh lined inner leg vent.
Key Features of The Sessions Achilles Snowboard Pants:
Can't believe I got these awesome pants for under $50! As a new rider I didnt know what to get but these pants had very good reviews and now I know why. Very comfortable not too loose or restrictive. Now that I think about it I should have bought 2. Waist is just right and with enough room to wear extra layers if needed. And you can adjust it with the waist band straps. The length is also good, at least for me. Great value for the price
I bought these at a ridiculous price (under $40, wish more colors were available when I placed my order) and they will be my go-to pants for next season. Not too bulky with enough room for layering/thermals if needed. Definitely like the adjustable waist. They are a bit baggy but not clown-pants baggy (or Hammer time baggy)
I havent worn these out yet but they feel very comfortable and made with durable materials. They are also lightweight and have plenty of pockets and features. Cant wait to use these badboys in the snow!
I got these pants along with the Sessions Revolution Jacket and I got these in Black Magic Boss. I know most people don't prefer white because it gets dirty really quickly, but the number of Sessions written all over the pants kind of keeps it from getting THAT dirty. Not only do these pants look sick on the mountain, they also keep you nice and cozy. I was messing around on the snow making snow angels and some of the snow got up my pants leg but I the pants still kept me nice and warm. If you want pants that look cool, keep you warm, and keep you from breading your bank, these are the pants for you
These pants are top knotch! bought two pairs - black and vivid blue. couldnt be more happier, the right amount of pockets means you can store enough in em but they wont weigh you down. Get these before there gon
Picked a pair of these up this season and I don't regret the purchase at all. Lightweight pants, thigh vents, pockets and zippers EVERYWHERE, and all your storage is done up tight so there's lots of options for where you can put stuff without worrying about it falling out somewhere on the mountain. Built in Recco if you care. To be honest, the waist is where you'll notice most of the sizing differences people talk about. I'm a 32-34 and the mediums have to close up on the velcro a good amount at the waist - I'm sure I could fit a Small in the waist, but I don't know if I'd be happy losing some of the play in the hips/thighs/legs since I *do* prefer a baggier fit. Still, you've got belt loops so if you're that worried about it you can always throw one of those on.
Depending on how much you plan to sit in the snow, 5k of waterproofing may affect you more than some people. Personally I freeride more than sitting in the park all day, and I haven't had a problem myself but YMMV. I know some people have said they wished it had some more waterproofing to it themselves.
Overall I think this is a great pant, especially for the price. Definitely recommend if you're trying to gear up but you're on a budget
These pants are nice and have many pockets. It utilizes some weird radar system that probably does work but I have yet to use it. they are warm and fit just great. There's some sort of gps or magnet of some sort imbedded into these pants so that if you get lost, they can use some type of machine to find you. however, only some lodges carry this receiver system. This is what I read from the pants description lol im probably not the best person to get advice on that
I love these pants, bought them at an amazing price and am I glad. They fist like a charm and look good too. They have the belt built in to have an even better fit if they are a little to big or small. Well worth the price, pick them up today
Got these and have had a chance to do a few runs with them now...love them. They are so comfortable, nice and baggy for layering underneath. And lots of pockets with zippers so you won't lose anything. Get these
These pants are excellent! When it got super cold I threw on some thermals and I was fine, but for most of the season they worked awesomely! The fit is just right and and there are so many pockets, all around great pants
The pants are solid basic snowboard pants. They don't get too warm, especially since you can open up the vents. I've used them for 2 seasons and the seem durable, no fraying of threads or anything. They are baggy, but not crazy baggy and the pockets are useful
These pants have almost everything your little heart would desire in a snowboard pant. It's a definite plus to have RECCO technology as well as lots of pockets to put things in. I'm surprised I got these pants at such a cheap price. I usually wear size 29 jeans, so I decided to buy the XS size and they fit perfectly
I have had burton, dc, quicksilver and volcom pants all of them cost any where from 100-220 dollars. They all had some qualities I like but not all in one like these pants and to boot these only cost me $65. I like the insulation butt and knees. The vivid blue accent of lime green go great together. The pull string to lift your pant legs up to show the girls your sexy legs. The plush hand pockets feel like i'm putting my hands up a warm furry bunny's butt (never done it but if you could imagine). On the both pockets you got a slit to run your head phone wires up to your jacket. The left front pocket has a little stretchy band to hold you ipod. Right side pocket has line with a clip to go onto your keys. Cargo pockets and back pockets all zip and velcro to keep your choice of posion safe and secure. Little pocket down by your shin to store little baggies of goodies. Then the best thing the RECCO avalanche rescue system. I have vivid blue in med. and bought the black in large (only size left) I wear a 34/30 in jeans for a baggy fit I am 5'9 165lbs. The difference between large and med. were the length in leg and waist but bagginess wasnt really any difference. The pants have the adjustable velcro waist system so you dont need a belt. Also nice vent for your junk when your sweating balls throwing all them ariel stunts and ground moves. get them you will be happy
These pants look rad, and for that price theyre a steal, I live in australia and you pay an arm and a leg to get no name shit, these are so cheap, look sick, theyre so warm and most importantly theyre soooooooooo comfy. buy these pants while price is low caue they are nice!
When I first opened the box I was blinded by the blue. But it is a great blue. These pants have tons of pockets. But what I liked best is the pockets have the inside part that folds over as well to prevent anything from falling out of big velcro pockets. These were my first snowboard specific pants so I was happy to find the avalanche tracker built into pants. They do not have insulation perfect for those early and late season days. They have a perfect baggy fit.
I have no cons these pants are just perfect and so fresh you are noticable and when ur throwing seven twenties your getting them snow bunnies also on below freezing days you feel completely warm and unoticable to the cold I recommend them to everyone
I got these pants and wore them all year last year. I love them. For the price they are a steal. you are definatly missing out if you dont get these. For me they are the perfict fit. They are nice and baggy but the velcro waist gives you a great fit without a belt. They have so many pockets of all diferent sizes and placements. These are really warm for being kind of on the thin side. They work great for me. My friend has them and complains about the waterproffing but as long as you dont spend all day sitting in the snow you will be fine. Get them they are a steal
I bought these because as a male, I have never owned anything pink. I got the popped pink color and I like them. I can stand out in the crowd and even wear a wig and someone would think I am a really good girl snowboarder. LOL, not that I would ever do such thing. Overall, these are the best bang for the buck. They fit just right and I enjoy the color. Get them NOW if you are looking for something that no one else has on the mountain
I bought one beginning of the season and it has been great. Awesome for the price, got it for only $40. It looks great and is very durable as well. It is partially insulated so you may want to layer up if it is super cold but so far I did not have to. The only thing you may want to do is size down one, the waist size is fine if you go with the sizing chart but bottom tends to be a bit baggy so take that into consideration. Overall, good pair of snowpants
I got the latte pants and I'm stoked with the purchase! They were incredibly cheap and they look great, plenty of pockets to keep your gear in and nice and baggy without being too baggy. I'm in between sizes so after reading the reviews I decided to go down a size and it was a great choice. No limit to any movement and still nice and baggy! I would definitely recommend going down a size if you're in between sizes. The recco system is a great addition too. All in all, awesome set of pants, especially for the price you're getting them at
Had to pick these up since my Quiksilver Scorps ran a little large and couldn't really wear them comfortably without layering.....These Sessions solve that problem. The Mediums fit dead on for me (34x34 in jeans) and I could not be happier. No need to layer with these on the non-frigid days as the pants alone are perfectly warm. Need new pants? Old ones a little too baggy? Buy these. Problem solved. Thanks again for providing amazing products at awesome prices.
I got the pop pink, and the color isnt that bright, but is really intense, it has tow stripes that if you pull them you wont get soiled with mud. Also a lot of pockects all of them with zipper and velcro, also is the recco sys
Bought these at 70 percent off and is really a great deal. I've worn these pants 3 times and on a variety of weathered days from snow to sunny days and they are great. They have kept me warm on cold days and cool on sunny days without extra layers. They are a little long for me which causes them to drag when I walk, but waist fits well. Love how it has tons of pockets for all my necessities. I would recommend it
Like I said I'm in between sizes so if I want to rock the baggy look I would wear my xl, but if I want to wear a comfortable non baggy pants then I wear my Large. I ordered the Vivid blue pair and the color is just perfect. It's not too bright and it even looks good with my orange jacket. Excellent price for the quality of this pant. They are not insulated however, but it's nothing some thermals can't cover up
I do black dimond skiing and these pants do their job more then well. They are the best snow pants for their price, once I put them on I did not regret a cent that I spent on them. They fit me right in my waist yet they are wide and spacious in the knees which is very good if you wear heavy duty knee guards. I use plastic motorcycle knee guards and I never knew comfort riding in my old pants but it is a dream to ride in this pants. I recommend them to who wants a quality pants for a bargain price
I usually wear M sized pants so I bought these ones in M. It's slightly big so I'd say the pants are size M+, not a L. Baggy, length is not too long so its perfect !! Thin so you have alot of room to pull tricks, not have to worry about squashing your jewels when you bring your knees to your chest!! It hasn't been super cold so pants are holding up fine but considering it's not super thick, might have to wear thermals underneath
Good quality, good value. However, I've got a 32 waist and the medium feels a little loose around the waist - I'm having to use the velco waist straps as tight as I can get them. I suggest that if you're inbetween sizes, go for the smaller size as these pants are oversized and have a baggy fit
I purchased these pants originally as a cheap alternative to current year/overpriced options. Secondly, these were meant for an alternative option during the beginning and late season riding. To my surprise, these may be the best pants I own. I am 5'08/180 punds. The mediums fit perfect for my athletic build. They are light weight and extremely comfortable, and they fit like a regular pair of pants vice the gangster look most typically wear. The drawstring leg risers are an added plus during mud season and the liner may be the best I've seen. Simply put...a steal. Definitely recommend
l got this during the cyber monday deal. First got it looks really good (actually for my friend). brought it to the slopes to test it out. noticed that it was really baggy but for those that like it, its a good thing. Lots of pockets for you to store stuff. Main complaint for me was that the design was for it to be baggy while l didnt want it like that. Tried to use the lace/velcro thingy to pull it higher but it was of little help. Had the holes for belt though so l had to use that. Just because it was long it was in my bindings way when l try to strap on, always need to pull it upwards. Lastly, like l said, it was dragging( said that 4x l think), l thought it would damage the leg portion from all the dragging. to my suprise it actually didnt and survived. overal recommended if you like baggy look
Pretty warm & comfortable pants. They are a slightly baggy fit but still very functional and fitting. They may not have the highest waterproof & breathing rating but I was impressed with their construction. You may not need as crazy of waterproofing/breathing ratings such as 20,000 if the construction is very good
These pants aren't overly done in any department. Good number of pockets without being obnoxious, fits well without having you look like you're wearing bags around your legs, and has the adjustable waist which is big for me. I have a small waist that could fit into a size small, but long legs that make size medium necessary. The adjustable waist with velco straps makes it so I don't need a belt. They're not the warmest of pants but they lend themself to layering. Wouldn't wear these if I was gonna be spending a lot of time sitting in the snow (beginners or waiting for beginners to catch up)
Keeps you dry for being so thin and is reasonably warm. I usually wear a single thermal layer underneath. the only thing is that the buttons on the bottom of the legs tend to be fragile. Bent them up the first time wearing them to the point where they wouldn't re-button.
Bought these because I was after some vivid blue colour pants and these were the only ones in the size I was after! Waterproofing isn't as high as I like and taping isn't full but for the money, it's great. Nice and warm and frankly, it is cheap enough that you could just buy two and swap it out when one starts wearing
Bought these for my son (we wear the same size). Great price. I tried them on and I like em. Thigh vents. Mesh lined with fleece in the right places to keep your butt and thighs warm. Pockets pockets everywhere. Pull up tabs at your thighs to pull up your pants to walk (no bending over) (cool idea!). Soft fabric yet water resistant and breathable. I'm sold and I'm going to buy another pair.
For the price, these awesome pants are a sweet deal! I think I could fit into a Small size of these. I am normally a Medium, for some crazy reason I bought Large... I think I was asleep at the time. But with the extremely adjustable elastic waist, they fit! and surprisingly, not so baggy as to be associated with MC-Hammer :
These would be awesome Spring pants as they're not too thick - or layer them up with some thermals and you're good to go when temps gets chilly. They've got all the pockets and zips you're ever going to need, and enough cool colors to make everyone happy
Nice pants, picked them up for $36 on the staff daily specials and don't regret the purchase. The fleece is in all the right places but still found I needed to wear thermals underneath to stay really warm. No problems with waterproofing though. Fits baggy but the length was good. I am 5 foot 9 and 149 pounds. Good 2nd set of pants or a nice one if you like layering underneat
Just got these in the mail and tried them on and they are pretty righteous pants. I am 5'8 and about 170 and got a medium, which in length seems to be perfect. The pants are still a little too baggy for my taste, but not as bad as I have seen with other pants. I'm not sure that I would have gone with a small. I think a medium probably covers the majority of people in the M-L range
For $40, you can't go wrong with these pants. They're best suited to those warmer spring days but could probably be used on those colder days if you used thermals. The latte colour looks great, and suits a lot of jacket colours. I've got no complaints
Plenty warm for 75% of the season. But not for those super cold sitting in snow days. For those you need more protection on the rear. But light enough for spring with shorts and vents. These work well and move well, no tight spots etc. And are plenty warm for most days. Plus they look great. I got the med I am about 32 waist and 31 inseam , they fit good.
I love the pants, they are a bit thin, but I wear thermals under anyways. So many pockets, I don't know what to do with it. The latte color is darker then it looks in the picture which I like. They are very comfortable and they have adjustable waist straps so you don't need a belt
Well i'm loving the pants, I got the vivid blue. I'm usually I size 34 in jeans etc but I went with the large and they fit perfect. Also can't believe how cheap they were for such a great pair of pants, I would have paid $300 in Au
These pants are nice since they are cheaper than a lot of others, and work well as a shell, since they don't have much insulation at all. The fit is big, I am a large regularly (35 waist) and I fit a medium in these. They are really comfy though, and have nice venting in the crotch. Get them if you like parachute pants
Good light pants for autumn and spring. You will can to meet new season in this pants! But my pants not so comfortable - vent zipper was twisted. I will plane it later, but now it's a little problem for my perineum ))
After about 3 months of riding I have holes in places I didnt think was possible. Don't get me wrong, the fit is awesome but they just fall apart. I have had to do my own repair kobs on these pants some of the holes are so big
Site sell it in cheap price and let me have this pants, I like this pants, no need to add thermal for spring ride. The colour is o.k. and it is very comfortable. Just little bit thin for me, might be XL will be better
I bought these as a spare pair for sunny warmer conditions or alternatively with thermal pants (they have plenty of room to allow thermal underneath). Had them at -2C at the mountain and they worked fine for me - warm enough. With 5K waterproofing the are not too great on a wet day especially if you still have a learning curve to go through and fall a lot. Generally found that the pants are good fit but when using it for the first time found a seam defect on the right side pocket near the zip. Also a clip on the back pocket came off. No extreme force applied - it just came off when I tried to open it. Would probably still recommend if you are getting them for as much as I did - $35.
Really cheapest pants & best quality. Keeps you dry for being so thin and is reasonably warm. I usually wear a single thermal layer underneath. The only thing is that the buttons on the bottom of the legs tend to be fragile. Bent them up the first time wearing them to the point where they wouldn't re-button.
