Combining EXOLITE 275 and WINDSTOPPER softshell fabrics these pants incorporate all the essential protections you need. EXOLITE 275 is the base fabric throughout the garment, a stretchy double weave, its inner is soft against the skin whilst the smooth outer increases abrasion resistance. Combining a close weave with Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating it is both weatherproof and highly breathable. The WINDSTOPPER fabric on seat and knees is a 3 layer protection, being abrasion resistant outer, moisture wicking inner and completely windproof midlayer making it ideal for sitting or kneeling on snow.
Equally suited to technical snow and ice climbing or trekking above the snow line the inner ankles have abrasion resistant patches to reduce wear caused by crampons or ski clips. The gusseted ankle zips allow for pulling them down over any mountain boot and the adjustable hem includes lace hooks. Pockets and thigh vents are all zipped, whilst the waist is secured with double press-stud fasteners a two way zipped fly and integral belt. Whether the road leads to the main route up Ben Nevis or an unclimbed route in Patagonia the Mountain Equipment Men's Mission Pant will help you get there.
