Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

A little background...
I live in SLC and claim Snowbird as my home mountain. I ski about 35-50 days a season and am a fairly aggressive skier.

The Pants:
I was looking for a kit that was a bit less pricy than the Patagonia/Arcteryx so I figured...with the specs, this pant (along with the JP Pro Jacket) would be a solid bet. I mean, GorePro, fully Taped seams ect, doesn?t sound bad....
Well I have rode them 1 day, and didnt rip hard by any means, and these pants are already falling apart. The material has a couple tears in them already and the stitching is coming out EVERYWHERE....literally, seams are coming apart in a number of different places. The Velcro patches to hold the bibs together are already coming undone and one is hanging by a thread, on the verge of coming completely off.

With crappy material and horrible craftsmanship....I would not recommend these pants to anyone.

Pretty disappointed to see this happening after just 1 day of riding (and I am being serious, 1 day, that?s it). I would not recommend this brand to anyone, my GF also has a pair of their pants and the same thing is happening. As for the style?.yeah they look cool, but with this price tag, half a season before they completely fall apart isn?t exactly ?cool?.
