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