Any recommendations for lime green snowboarding pants?  Def looking for something that is extremely waterproof since my last pair wasnt... even though it was 10,000mm waterproof.  Plus I'm an East Coast rider, so the conditions get slushy at times.  I'm about 5'9", 150lbs, with a size 30 waist, so any recommendations on size would be awesome as well

these pants are alright, 10k and the color you want.

Just don't sit in the snow too often and you'll stay dry in the ice coast

I have a set of these from 686. Though mine are a different color. They work really well. I am on the east coast also and these have always kept me dry.

10k will be fine as long as you not always sitting down on the snow.  Be careful with lime green pants they stain super easy!
I make handmade longboards PM me for info.

Northface makes a pair of lime green pants that are pretty sweet and they water proof rating is pretty high by their accounts...i think they run around 175 bucks but definitely can get them on sale now...sorry i forgot the model name.

if you really want waterproof, go with gore-tex. someone up above said that 20000 is great, and its nice, but my butt still gets wet on slushy or powder days just from sitting to put my bindings on. avoiding a wet butt in snowboarding = not ever sitting

686 Smarty Kelly Green.  they have 10 or 15k waterproofing i forget.  I'm an east coaster to, and I don't get wet.  IF youre getting wet in these(at least while the waterproofin is still in tact), I think you're doing way to much sitting or falling into the snow :)

Any particular reason they need to be lime green?  Doing a lot of back country riding in the dark or something?!?

Dig in an edge strap in standing than you avoid the wet butt musties only time you get wet is if you fall
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

special blend and 686 both got lime green pants. if you got anythin over 10k waterproofing you should be good unless your planning on spending all day sitting or falling in the snow and the lime green is to avoid getting run into. if your just looking for a solid pair of lime green pants either 686s or special blens with the 10k water proffin will be fine

i saw someone else recommended these and i just wanted to second that you should get the ride mardrona pants in a small. if you get the 2011's they're boot cut fit which i think is cool.

I really like the NIKE crowley fit but they only make it in black, brown, and red this season. Red would be nice too if you consider that option.

I have these pants in blue and they are like neon.  The lime is really bright and you can't beat the price on trusnow.  I love mine.  They have just enough pockets and as a shell they keep you pretty warm, and they are very good in slush.  I am also a East Coast rider and I love these pants!

what about the sierra colab with sessions? i dont know if the waterproofing is as much as you want it to be, but i notice thats not really a factor if your not sitting down as much.
