The long, hard climb is followed by a fast ride through fresh, untracked powder. The Solitude Mountain Pants shut out the wind and wet while you’re up on the mountain having fun, and were designed in collaboration with pro ski racer Felix Neureuther. These high-end ski pants are windproof, waterproof, super robust and breathable. The knees and seat are reinforced, and the lower back area features an airy mesh fabric that wicks sweat quickly to the outside. If you get too warm when you’re cranking up the tempo on the slopes, simply open up the venting zips on the thighs for a cooling blast of fresh air. Internal gaiters prevent snow ingress, and the braces can be detached if necessary. The main fabric is dyed using Jack Wolfksin's environmentally friendly Future Dye process, which uses much less water and far fewer chemicals than conventional dyeing methods. This process also ensures lasting colourfastness.
