Equally suited for high-stepping up and hop-turning down, our KnifeRidge Pants are built from stretchy Polartec Power Shield Pro, a fabric with remarkable breathability given its waterproof protection.
When your hierarchy of backcountry needs remain stablebig mountains, protection, breathability, snow and iceour KnifeRidge Pants deliver a unique balance of soft-shell breathability and hard-shell protection. Their function begins with the fully seam-taped, lightweight and stretchy 3-layer Polartec Power Shield Pro fabric, which remains waterproof in all but a downpour. It has a soft, pliable hand that slides easily over layers yet also withstands abrasion, while the articulated patterning complements the fabrics stretch. Features include a drop seat with 2-way watertight side zippers that double as thigh vents, a 2-way zippered fly, a watertight zippered right-thigh pocket with a glued-in stretch-mesh pocket bag, belt loops, removable suspenders, and a rear attachment loop (for jackets with a powder strap). The slim lower leg has a calf-length zipper with an expandable gusset, a single-cuff design with a 2-position snap tab for both alpine and ski boots, a shock-cord adjustment, tie-down loops, a durable scuff guard and a concealed RECCO reflector.
