From unexpected hail storms to sloppy snowfields, springtime in the alpine can deliver a mixed bag of conditions. The light, packable Calcite Pants protect from passing squalls with 2.5-layer GORE-TEX Paclite® Plus and a 100% recycled polyester face fabric. Roomy enough to fit over your climbing pants on cold mornings, the pants have a textured backer that stays comfortable next to skin if the weather warms up. The waist secures with a zip fly and an integrated adjustable buckle belt, articulated knees offer mobility and water-tight side zips extend from the cuff to hip to fit easily over alpine boots. Cuffs are reinforced with scuff guards; tie-down loops allow you to attach an under-the-heel cord for use with alpine boots. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.
