I’m looking to buy new pants and I saw the 686 3 in 1 pants on sale. If any of you have used them I would appreciate your opinion. Also are they a looser fitting pant?

SessionThey are kind of a classic snowboard fit in my opinion, definitely looser than my Trew bibs, but not as loose as say Saga. Bomber pant for sure.
SavageBiffMy 686 bibs are prob my favs and most used, they are tear free after a years of trees and eating shit in questionable areas, sliding down ice faces at 60mph. They’re very comfy, not baggy but looser than a reg fit, not too long so they don’t get in way of pulling knees up like my planks bibs, also great warmth/cooling with 60g insulation, vents and good snow coverage, compatible with powder skirts, def recommended
yoitOn a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being skinny pants and 10 being average harlaut pant wearer what would you rate the bagginess?
oldmanskiI got a pair of 686 pants and really dig them! I agree with @SavageBiff on the bagginess, right in the middle. Im not a tight pant wearer nor do I like the super baggy fit. I like them just baggy enough to go over my knee braces and allow me a full range of motion. They are super durable and I highly recommend, especially if you can get them for a deal like I did for $60 new at the Portland ski expo.
