I expected a lower quality since these pants are entry-level. But, I was impressed by the quality when I got them. The exterior fabric seems to have a good quality. The fit is also good, it has articulations and overall it feels very comfortable. I have to be honest, I haven't tried these pants for snowboarding yet but I am not worried. I have tried more expensive pants that don't have that level of quality. The only aspect I cannot comment on is the durability and overall resistance to abuse. But my initial feeling is that they will exceed what I would expect from entry-level pants. I would recommend these pants to anyone looking for the best price/quality ratio.
