    Posted: Jan/21/2011 at 11:21am
I was snowboarding this weekend, and someone said to put my pants sleeve over the highback to prevent it from ripping. Is this true? I have always put mine behing the binding and nothing has ever happened.

I figure putting the pants over the highback would cause it to rip on toe side turn.

it's more of a personal style thing.  highbacks ripping pants i would say is not the norm.

I just strap in....... over or under I have no idea, it probably changes from run to run........ and I have never had any pants rip because of a highback.

i would put the back of the pants between the back of the binding and your boot but the front of the pants over the binding strap. this seems to work very well at keeping your pants looking new. if your pants are over the back of the binding, there's a possibility of dragging them while heel edging.

I usually put them behind highback because it makes it easier to strap in. My boots are really bulky, so anything helps.

It's very important that you do it the right way cause the highback can get damaged.  I think you should create a poll cause it's very important that everybody knows what the right way is.  Ya heard?!?
Did you google it?

iono i don't think it makes too much of a difference (i don't look at how i put my pants). however, one thing i've noticed is sometimes when the pants is in front of the high back kinda weird, it restricts some range of motion. but.. ripping of the pants? i doubt it unless you got super long pants that will drag on the snow, (and eventually under your board)

+1, dont think it matters much. I guess if you are over, your boot is so slightly tighter to the highback...shouldn't rip pants more/less either IMO. I'm an over guy, but just for style...a pet peeve is when I forget to pull my pants over. I'd like to see a poll...

Never experienced ripping or tearing of the pant at the bottom cuffs. Rode both tuck and non-tuck pants on the highback.  Don't think it would matter.

I'm high backs out too.  Never had my pants rip and I've had the same ones for 4 seasons.  I can see it though because of the increased friction.

like most people here i put my pants between boots and high back.

If you had your pants over the high back, woudn't there be a higher chance to ripe your pants or to trip over when u take your foot out of the bindings?

I have my pants between the boot and highback, just because that's where it naturally goes to when I put my foot in the binding. Why bother pulling it over the highback?

l think what they meant is that if your pants are too long and you put it outside of the binding, then theres a chance of tearing it. But if you put the pants behind the binding, you'll be perfectly fine

My right leg of my pant is ripped at the bottom, but the left leg isn't. I think it's due to pushing, not because my highbacks are out. Otherwise both pants would be ripped.

If it rips from your bindings your pants are too tight buddy. I have never had an issue and a change it up depending on my mood.

yeah, I feel the need to keep pants outside highbacks...except when there's deep/cold powder. In that case, tucking it in makes it less possible for my frozen cuff to catch/release my ratchet (...which, coincidentally, has only happened on my front binding LOL).

I always have mine on the inside and under the ankle strap, but I make sure to pull them up a bit so that I have no change of tugging on it when I stand up.

I always tuck the bottoms of my pants into my highbacks. I think it keeps my pant hems cleaner and safe. (Snowboard pants tend to be kind of long, though.)

I like having my boot snug against my binding so I go pant over the highback. Plus it just looks better.......you don't tuck your shirt into your underwear do you?

i think highbacks out looks better.  not "straps cramping pant cuffs cause i strapped and went" but highbacks out, pants over ankle strap, etc.

point is its all preference and realistically doesnt matter anyway
