DaKine Clutch Pants Review

Just like the DAKINE Clutch Jacket, the Clutch Pants are legit too. I’m a big fan of the Clutch pants and they’re really a solid choice if you’re in the market this season. The Clutch’s pack a serious amount of high-quality features and technology into a great upper mid-range price point package.

If you don’t want to or can’t plunge into the super high-end ski and snowboard pants realm ($400+) this season, I am happy to report that the 3-layer DAKINE Clutch shell pants will satisfy even the most discerning skiers and riders. These pants are cut for action with an articulated fit that doesn’t ride up or bunch when you navigate the mountain, the 20K/20K fabric will keep you dry during even the most torrential storms, the water-resistant zippers won’t allow your carry-on items to get wet and they also look nice and steezy too. The lined hand pockets are an extra bonus when you’re sans gloves, the reinforced lower inner legs ensure fewer edge tears during a long season and the inner leg vents with mesh openings will keep you cool while hiking to your favorite lines.

If you’re looking for a new pair of killer pants in the $300 price range, don’t overlook these guys. They’ll last for a really long time thanks to the quality DAKINE craftsmanship and perform every day you’re on the hill. DAKINE may be new to the outerwear game, but they’re O.G’s when it comes to the snow sports industry and the Clutch’s are a testament to this legacy.

JACKSON, Wyo. — Saying he’s done wasting time and is ready to devote his entire winter season to ripping pow, 4-year-old toddler dirtbag Caden Henry officially dropped out of preschool Monday so he could move to Jackson Hole and finally have the winter of a lifetime he's been waiting a whole year since learning to ski to enjoy. Instead of spending the winter coloring, learning the ABC’s and counting to 10, the grom plans to chase storms around the Tetons while living out of his retrofitted

Mount Olympus, NZ: Where snowriders define heaven (and get topless)

Mount Olympus, NZ: Where snowriders define heaven (and get topless)

It's lunchtime, 1620 metres above sea level in the Top Hut. Above the scuffle of snow boots and jangle of nutcrackers (the standard-issue metal attachment everyone uses to grip the rope tow), benevolent banter fills the building. "You guys here for lunch?" "Picked a great weekend for it! Forecast is for these snow flurries to continue all night..." "Rock n' roll." Wearing harnesses and broad smiles, riders and sliders mingle in the kitchen, reception/dining/bar area and lounge as warm
