This version of the women's pants shares a name with the men's style, but little else. You can wear them out, without looking like you just skied home from a hut. The cut is feminine and works well for daily wear that keeps you warm when temperatures dip. The design may have been overhauled, but the technical merit, quality of the fabric, and value of the piece remain unchanged.
- Made of best-in-industry Polartec® Classic 200 fleece, 100% polyester that contains 85% recycled content.
- Simple drawstring waist with cleanly styled, hip-hugging pockets.
- Subtle flare at the cuffs without bulky zippers.
