Planks X Woodsy ‘Yeah Baby’ Pant | Review

Show the world you’re all about kicking it big time at the park with the ‘Yeah Baby’ pant

Why We Chose The Planks ‘Yeah Baby’ Pant: Practical ski pants wrapped up in a cool, loose-fitting, style.

Price: £150


Have you ever spent months growing your hair dead long, shaved one side off, flopped the remaining hair over the shaved side of your head, stared forlornly at yourself in a full-length mirror and said, out loud to no one in particular, “WHY?! WHY DO I STILL NOT LOOK LIKE JAMES ‘WOODSY’ WOODS AKA THE COOLEST FREESTYLE SKIER BRITAIN HAS EVER PRODUCED – THE ONE WITH THE OCTOGRAB – THE ONE WHO WENT AGONISINGLY CLOSE TO WINNING A MEDAL IN THE PYEONGCHANG 2018 SLOPESTYLE FINAL.”

We’ve all been there, mate. You’re not alone.

Planks know this and have, in recent years, answered our cries of despair by serving up a range of collaborative, signature, products designed and tested by the man himself. Made to be paired with the painfully stylish Planks ‘Yeah Baby’ jacket, the loose-fitting ‘Yeah Baby’ pants will have you looking like an X Games boss while you endlessly lap the park with your crew.

The material split on the ‘Yeah Baby’ pant is 54% recycled polyester and 46% polyester outer fabric. Planks have been gradually upping their products’ eco-credentials year on year, and it’s great to see that progress continue to the point where their kit is now more ‘green’ than not. With that in mind, shoutout also to the fact that the pants have had a solvent-free DWR coating. 

The pants have a polyester taffeta lining and a 10k waterproof level / 10k breathability level meaning you can keep the good times coming whatever the weather’s up to.


Just like the ‘Yeah Baby’ jacket, the ‘Yeah Baby’ pants from Planks are available in ‘Burnt Orange’, ‘Army Green’, and ‘Black’. If you want to match, by all means go for it. If you live for anarchy, mix and match. The choice is yours.

“Give yourself a little bit of that James ‘Woodsy’ Woods aura”

In terms of keeping the elements out (including unwanted snow), the ‘Yeah Baby’ will have you covered thanks to its taped seams and snow skirt. As we all know, there’s nothing worse than cold, wet, legs killing your buzz so it’s great to see Planks continuing to put just as much emphasis on the functional side of things as they are the fashion side of things. The pants also have venting – ideal for those flaming hot days of spring where your face, no matter how much cream you lather on it, always goes that embarrassed lobster shade of red.  

Pocket enthusiasts will be more than happy with the ‘Yeah Baby’ offering. There’s pockets for your lift pass, pockets for your ‘Little Book of Calm’, pockets for your Snickers, pockets for your phone, pockets for your lip balm and pockets for your football stickers here. Sure, some of these items might have to ‘share a room’ but, however you organise yourself, you won’t have to cram everything you own into one small space. Spread your kit out, my dude. Spread. Your. Kit. Out. 


Give yourself a little bit of that James ‘Woodsy’ Woods aura with the ‘Yeah Baby’ pants from Planks. They’re loose-fitting, look cool, and provide a properly practical foundation upon which you can build up a big old pile of fun times both at the park and away from it.

Pair these up with the Planks X Woodsy ‘Yeah Baby’ Jacket for the full Woodsy effect.
