Whether on a long approach or a technical climb, the Soft Shell Trousers are built for the long-haul. Made with durable nylon and stretchy elastane, harnessing articulated design details and reinforced kickpatches, they are engineered with movement in mind. They feature two zipped hand pockets and a thigh pocket with integrated gear loop. And the hem openings feature zips and stretch gusseting to accommodate a range of mountaineering boots. On top of all this they are fully windproof, thanks to hardworking WindWall fabric technology. Summit Series layers all work together for optimum performance in terms of breathability, insulation, weather resistance and moisture management.
