Show Description

These insulated pants will take you through a full range of winter activities, keeping you warm yet mobile. Stretch inner thread construction keeps insulation close to your body for optimal warmth. The articulated knees and gusseted crotch mean there's no extra fabric to get in your way or slow you down. Ripstop nylon is waterproof enough to sit in a snow cave and breathable enough to be worn all day. A roomy cut and unisex sizing makes these pants a great choice for winter adventurers of all genders.

  • Breathable and waterproof, the shell is nylon ripstop with a waterproof-breathable polyurethane hydrophilic laminate and a DWR finish.
  • Seams are not taped, so this garment will not be fully waterproof in heavy rain.
  • Fully insulated with 100g weight synthetic insulation.
  • Lining and inner insulation layer are quilted with stretchy thread to hold in warmth and aid flexibility.
  • Elastic waist with integrated webbing belt is easy to layer over other pants.

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.
