686 Compression Cargo 3-in-1 Pants - Men'sis rated5.0out of5by1.
Rated5out of5byfrom1 month reviewThe under armor compression that come with these pants are similar to tights but aren't. Recently washed it and the fit is way more snug and feels great when on the slopes, walking around the streets the under jeans or out jogging. The shell on these pants are great for all types of weather from bluebird days to white out conditions (wear a pair of long johns under over the compression to stay nice and warm) Don't get me wrong they will get stay dry in rain but if your sitting around in the rain your bottom will get wet they aren't Gortex but just spray on Nikwax and your good for heavy rain also! I've owned the 686 smarty cargo (med) for 6 seasons before and the price on these were a bit hard for me justify (twice as much as reg 686 cargo) but you get what you pay for! Happy boarding!
