Show Description

Far from being a sandbag, these technical pants will be a boon for getting things done in the mountains. The durable stretch woven fabric resists light rain and wind, making them ideal for alpine routes or long approach slogs. Streamlined, straight cut leg is designed not to flap or get snagged on your crampons. Articulated knees promote unhindered movement.

  • DWR treatment sheds light precipitation.
  • Two-way zip fly allows relief while wearing a harness.
  • Microfleece lined waistband for comfort.
  • Right thigh pocket with zip closure.
  • Belt loops.
  • Two zippered hand pockets close in the down position for comfort under a harness.
  • Articulated knees.
  • Grommets at hem.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
