For dripping belay caves or wind-scoured waterfall ice, these insulated pants are quick to pull on over a soft shell layer. The lean cut is streamlined enough that you can move in them if conditions require. Full side zips allow you to add and remove when wearing your harness or crampons. Also a great layer for wearing around camp on ski touring trips.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.

|Venting||Full-length leg zips|
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.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
