Show Description

All-mountain hard shell pants with waterproof-breathable versatility for experience-hungry skiers. Breathable 3-layer fabric makes these "the" choice for backcountry days that might serve up sleet delivered on a bed of Arctic wind. A minimalist design keeps the weight down so you can move fast to outpace the worst of the weather.

  • Made of supple GORE-TEX® fabric that offers excellent breathability and withstands full-on weather and rough terrain.
  • Front fly with snaps and a water-resistant Uretek coated zip.
  • Front pockets have coated, water-resistant zips and hidden bellows for added volume. Right pocket has an internal mesh pocket that holds large smart phones.
  • Articulated knees for a full range of motion.
  • Thigh vents with water resistant zips let you dump heat on the uptrack.
  • Insteps have burly polyester and Kevlar kick patches.
  • Hem is shock cord adjustable.
  • Internal gaiters have silicone gripper elastic to keep them in place and a pull tab for easy ski to walk mode transitions while wearing gloves.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate Recco reflectors under snow. Recco technology is not a substitute for avalanche skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.

Fabric waterproof rating

The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.


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.

Waterproof with fully taped seams
Fabric active breathability

The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.

Venting Thigh vents
Pockets 2 handwarmer

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.

Finished inseam

The finished inseam measurement of the garment.

31.5in. (M)
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.
