Mountain Equipment's Exolite 210 is a high spec softshell fabric that works well in year-round weather conditions.
Zipped pockets throughout, the thigh pockets are mesh lined so they can be used for storage or left open for ventilation if you start heating up on a challenging climb. A pair of generously sized hip pockets and a single back pocket. The fly has a two-way zip and the waistband is microfleece lined with double stud fastening and integral belt - an excellent combination of comfort and security. The lower leg is low volume, producing a closer, less flappy fit, but includes ankle zips with gusseted panels if you want to wear them over high boots. Stretching, jumping, doing the splits, all are made easier by the inherent stretchy nature of the fabric and the articulated knee feature.
