Jib-parks to pow lines.
Mr Bailey is a well-rounded snowboarder, and as such he knows the important of rocking well-rounded gear, which is why he designed his own pants along with 686. The 686 Durable Double Knee pants are based on Forest's favorite pant style, but beefed up for snow, so you can rock your favorite street style whether you're hitting handrails in Monreal or getting deep into the backcountry in Silverton. With a 2-layer infiDRY membrane that's backed with a DWR coating, the Durable Double Knee pants are set to keep you feeling dry from Quebec to Colorado, and ample snow-specific features elevate things to the next level.
Ankle gaiters with boot lace hooks seal out the elements from the bottom up, doing their best to stay secure even when you're rag-dolling after casing a backcountry booter, and taped seams keep moisture from creeping in between the cracks. Fully articulated knees make it easy to get stylie when nose-buttering into hand rails, or boot packing to the peak, and they are backed with a second layer of fabric from thigh to knee for extra durability and warmth. Air-Flo mesh inner thigh vents give you a spot to dump heat when you get sweating, allowing your skin to breathe and moisture to escape so you stay warm and dry. And don't forget the removable webbed belt that's there to keep your pants secure on every ride.

Made to look like your favorite pair of Chinos the Forest Durable Double knee is here for you. Forest based this pant off a pair of his favorite around town pants to give you that off hill on hill look. With that infiDry 15k fabric you are sure to stay dry in any elements you throw at these. These are a true shell as well and have a looser tailored fit. I really like the thigh pocket for easy access on the lift. The full meshed vents also help keep you cool while keeping the snow out as well. If you are looking for the work wear inspired look but still have all the tech the Durable Double knee is the pant for you.
