Designed for resort and sidecountry riding, this
is the best ski pant known to man (and woman).
The freeride-style fit, combined with the classic
Arc’teryx articulation in the knees and inseams,
gives you steeze and range of motion. The threelayer soft shell gore-tex fabric is tech-nasty: the
outermost layer is a burly, abrasion resistant
nylon; the gore membrane is waterproof; and
the innermost layer is soft, lo-loft flannel.
Low-profile cargo and hip stash pockets are easy-access on the
chairlift, and the zippers are watertight. Thigh
vents provide respite on a hot hike.
