Q:

The North Face Kannon Insulated Pants

Last year, my snowboard pants didn’t work out so well—I was sweaty and wet most days. This season, how do I keep my lower half from becoming a hot mess?

A:The presence of a Recco avalanche rescue reflector is a tip-off that the $249 Kannon insulated pants are designed to go anywhere from resort riding to multi-day expedition. Designed for riding/skiing backcountry, they hold up to abuse, but keep you dry with North Face’s own two-and-a-half layer FlashDry fabric (WR rated at 17,600mm). Strategically placed vents regulate temperature. 23.6 ounces
