The Volcom V-Bird Gore-Tex Pant offers top-shelf, double-layer Gore-Tex breathable waterproofing to keep you dry even in the nastiest snowstorm, or, what you like to call, heaven. This bomber hardshell pant is fully taped for leakproof protection, and features a long-lasting triple-reinforced rise and Black-Flax reinforced hem. Mesh-lined zip vents are key when you push as hard as you do, or simply when the weather warms. The V-Science breathable lining system aids in this way and keeps you cool and dry from the inside-out. And stretch boot gaiters with lace hooks seal out the pow and cold when it's deep. In really crazy storms, there's a Zip Tech pant-to-jacket interface that makes your two-piece a one-piece wonder. 

If all that burly protection that lets you storm-ride 'til your heart's content isn't enough, this pant has a slimmer, modern silhouette with a higher waist for ultimate comfort and style and optimal coverage.

Modern Articulated Fit Changed?

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

I currently have last years Volcom Blackout Pants and I love them and the fit. So much I decided to get this years V-Birds. Unfortunately when I got them I realized they are much baggier in the thigh and hip area but they are listed as the same Modern Articulated Fit. Did they change the fit of the pants all together this year? Its kind of odd from the knees down they fit the same as my Blackouts but they are way different above that. Anyone know if Volcom changed this? Makes me wonder if I should find last years V-Birds.

Stylish but not $280 worth

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

The pants look unique and have cool stylish features. I have a Volcom snowboard jacket that zips into the pants and that works very well.

I wanted pants that would be top of the line. I snowboard every weekend. The pants are kind of cold. I expected more warmth. The outside of the pants around the ankles are getting all marked up and scuffed so the blue has faded off the pants. I expected better, warmer, tougher quality for a $280 gortex pant. If it weren't for the zip tech I would wear my $90 Simms pants over these.

Thanks for the feedback. Regarding the warmth factor, it's important to keep in mind that Goretex is designed to wick moisture, not keep you warm so the material will always be thin. Body heat also gets wicked away with that moisture. If you're looking for warmer snow pants, I suggest choosing an insulated option. I tend to run cold so I wear insulated snow pants in weather 20F degrees and colder.

Lets be serious, Gore-Tex is great stuff! And the Volcom V-Bird Gore-Tex Pant is no different. They mix the Volcom quality with bombproof Gore-Tex 2 layer fabric and a great slim cut for a perfect pant.

First Impressions: The pants look and feel bombproof! The Gore-Tex 2 layer fabric looks like it will survive the abuse and moisture of the Pacific Northwest with no problems. The number and location of the pockets seem fairly standard. The Volcom Zip Tech is a great "techie" feature of the pant that allows you to seamlessly connect your Volcom jacket and pants for a weather proof seal when the conditions require (i.e. POW!). As far as the sizing is concerned, I am 5'7" and weigh roughly 160lbs. The medium is a perfect fit, enough room to move, but still a slimmer cut.

Overall, I am rating at five stars on initial impressions.

I will be sure to give a update once I have been able to use in variable conditions.
