The RPS Pants are made of durable soft shell, excellent for summer alpine routes, as it blocks wind and sheds water with a DWR finish. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch facilitate high stepping and drop-knee moves, while the Patagonia OppoSet waist customizes the fit and slides under a harness or hipbelt. Back pockets reinforce the seat, front pockets are mesh lined for ventilation and a thigh pocket is accessible under a harness.
