You're practically bulletproof in your all singing and dancing waterproof jacket. It feels great to laugh at the sleet and rain as it tries in vain to get through your outer barrier. You're warm and dry and can go on and on until that is, the icy water runs off your jacket in rivers and straight onto your thighs, permeating your trousers and turning your quadriceps from lean mean mountain eating machines into frozen lumps of ice. Maybe it's time you gave the same care and attention to your legs as you do to your torso. With the Mountain Equipment Men's Firefox Pants made from Gore-Tex Active - highly breathable and waterproof – lightweight and tough, protection is assured. They incorporate a huge ¾ length zip to each leg making them quick and easy to pull on without needing to remove your boots. The 2-way zips means you can access the thigh pockets of your normal trousers. The elasticated waist drawcord quickly and with one hand adjusts for a close comfortable fit. With their articulated knees and gusseted crotch, you're free to move unrestricted, whilst the active fit and semi elasticated ankle cuffs means there is little excess fabric to flap around in the breeze.
When the mountains beckon, when the scent of a winter breeze nips your nose, when the office threatens to suffocate, be sure to have your adventure bag stuffed with the gear you'll need to make the most of the weekend.
