Special Blend Annex Pant

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:Runs large

I have the previous year's version of these pants in red. They are very soft. The waist adjustment is terrific. They have the jacket to pants interface so you can hook them to a compatible jacket and keep a better seal between you and the snow. They are nice and warm and oh so comfortable. I usually wear an additional layer under these pants so I never get cold or wet. The zipper vents work well but I have seen them catch on the vent in the legs so this was a veritable nightmare to try to get them unsnagged :-(. Inside the pockets there are elastic pulls that hike up the back of the legs so you can walk around apres ski without walking all over the back of your pant legs, genius! These are very stylish pants with pretty much every available option. The boot gaiters have a leash hook. They have a snap and velcro slit to ease sliding them over your boots. These pants pretty much rock. My only complaint is that the red version get dirty very easily. One time I gave them a dirty look and the leg was instantly stained...almost that easy.

Great pants!

    Good:
    -Full length baggy
    -monstrous powder skirt is removable
    -tons of venting
    -loose enough for layering
    -thin enough for warm days
    The bad:
    -cheap zippers like to feed on mesh

    Just recycled my 686 pants that I've had for years. Wasn't planning on switching brands, but these are every bit as good and cost less than half. Aside from the vent zippers jamming up every time I touch them, these pants are sick!

    most bang for your buck

      The Annex has been my favorite pant for years and Special Blend has done nothing to change that this year. These pants, by far, provide the most features of any pant this price. Classic snowboard styling that isn't overly baggy. Super long inseam for us tall folk or those that just like the extra length. Really soft hand to them and a comfortable lining. Velcro waist adjustment and ample cargo space for carrying your favorite beverage. All in all, insane pant for only $180.

      Long Live SB!

        Took these pants out for a day and was impressed. No complaints with waterproofing and breathability so far, and pants come with pretty standard features. For reference in this photo, I'm 5'11" and 180lbs in the XL. I prefer extra length and some bagginess in my pants, but I've also got a big waist (36) and thick thighs so they didn't look stupid baggy on me. Adjust the waist cinch, throw on a belt, and I was good to go.

        Took a star off because it would have been nice to see some sort of reinforcement at the hems since this is a supposed to be a loose fitting pair of pants. Otherwise, I would highly recommend these if you're into the baggy fit, especially since SB is no longer in business.

        Long Live SB!

        simply the best

          I am now on my second pair of these pants in 4 years. fit is great nice an baggy for extra comfort and crash shorts. Best features of these pants are all the options for ventilation and the waist gaiter. Using these pants more or less guarantee that your mid section will stay dry when you are getting after it in the POW POW. If you're looking for a great pair of pants you don't need to look any further.

          gang bangin!

            A Freedom Fit is a regular, relaxed fit for the ferocious freestyle dudes who kill it. You know you're partying with a genius pair of pants when they feature a bottle opener on the ticket ring...ahhh yeah! After a long day of lappin' the park, you might have to let your buddy drive home when you rep the Annex. With a perfect combination of party and performance, the Annex truly is a Special Blend.

              Does anybody know if these are the same...

              Does anybody know if these are the same sizing and cut as last year? I have last seasons Annex in XXL and was hoping that they hadn't changed anything for their last two years. I would like to get a pair from their last season in business.

              I'm 6'2" and have a 33" waist. Should I...

              I'm 6'2" and have a 33" waist. Should I go for the Medium or the Large. I've a pair of Burton Cargos and DC Banshees in Large that fit me perfectly and their sizing chart matches SB's. Does Special Blends sizing in reality match Burton/ DC or do they run large? Not sure whether to size down to a medium or not. Want them to be baggy but not Gangsta style.
