Show Description

Three cheers for backcountry ski days. These soft shell pants are equipped with touring-specific features to enhance your off-piste adventures. A DWR finish on the stretch fabric shields you from blowing snow and misty rain. A flat waistband stays put and comfortable, even under a hipbelt. The built-in Recco® Rescue System gives you added peace of mind when you’re covering new or untouched terrain.

  • Stretchy woven blend of nylon, polyester and spandex lets you move freely.
  • DWR finish sheds light rain and snow.
  • Flat waistband with zippered fly is comfortable under a pack hipbelt.
  • Webbing loop on rear yoke lets you attach the powder skirt from a compatible jacket.
  • Removable, elasticized suspenders increase mobility without pants riding up.
  • 2 hand pockets and 2 thigh pockets have water-resistant zips.
  • Cinch system at cuffs seals tight to your boots and is easy to adjust with gloved hands.
  • Built-in Recco® Rescue System reflector allows ski patrol and mountain rescue teams to detect and locate Recco reflectors under snow. Useful for resort skiing, Recco technology is not a substitute for avalanche skills training, beacons, essential gear, or smart decision-making in the backcountry.
