2012 Powderhorn Rodeo Pant


Pros: Good Materials

Cons: Odd front pockets, no vents

I bought these on the Clymb for $130, so they were a great deal for some pretty tech pants that come in cool colors.  It's the end of my season, so I haven't got to really try them out but I figured I'd give my first impressions.  My old pants have always been mesh lined (uninsulated) mid-price range burtons.  With a thin base layer my legs have never been cold, and I often unzipped the leg vents when I was hiking or skinning in the the backcountry.  These pants have a light fleece lining and no vents.  I assume the lack of vents is to prevent leaks, but I probably wouldn't have bought these if I knew about it.  Anyway, the fleece is super comfy so I'm gonna try to rock these without a base layer and hope my legs don't get cold.  Also, the front pocket openings are horizontal.  Granted, they zip closed and your jacket will probably be covering them, but if they do somehow sneak open a little I could see them filling with snow.  My old burton's also always had a little key clip in the front pocket which doesn't seem like much but gave me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing I wouldn't looks my car keys.  I snowboard, so I don't really need the reinforced bottom cuffs. I think these pants will work at keeping the cold out and looking good, but they have some room for improvement IMO.


Pros: Fleece lined, waterproof, breathable, gaitors, Powderhorn overall connecting system

Cons: n/a

The rodeo pant is such a nice pant with high quality materials. Any moisture rolls right off, and the zippered pockets are waterproof sealed. The rodeo pant has awesome gaitors with a super tacky elastic gripper. Outer leg zippers for extra ventilation when skinning up to that pow filled line. This pant will keep out the cold and hold in the warmth. The Rodeo Pant is great pant for any winter activity.
