Show Description

Stay warm on the way to the summit. Windproof and extremely water-resistant, the Impendor Soft Shell Pants are built for long days in the alpine. Stretchy fabric and articulated knees let you high-step as needed, and reinforced lower legs and seat stand up to the demands of breaking trail and scrambling across scree. Integrated tie-down loops keep debris from getting into your boots.

  • Made of durable nylon and elastane stretch double weave softshell fabric.
  • Front lower legs and seat are heavier-weight nylon, polyester and elastane softshell for increased durability.
  • Both fabrics have an internal bonded Windwall laminate for totally windproof and a Durable Water Repellency finish for water resistance.
  • Adjustable drawcord and belt loops provide fit options.
  • Zippered hand pockets and side pocket hold small items.
  • Articulated knees promote range of motion.
  • Adjustable drawcord cuffs have integrated tie-down loops.

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.
