If your notion of big-mountain versatility runs from rainforest approaches to blizzard-blasted summits, our rugged new Triolet Pants have you covered. They protect you with a waterproof/breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and they open up with full-separating side zips, so you can vent on the go with 2-way waterproof, PU-coated zippers or put on your pants above tree line without removing your skis or boots. An articulated pattern and gusseted crotch allows ease of movement and comfort under a harness, and the waist separates with a zippered fly. Interior elasticized hook-and-loop tabs customize the fit; the welted vertical handwarmer pockets have DWR-treated zippers; and the double cuff has a durable scuff guard, a separating internal gaiter (with hook-and-loop plus snap closure), gripper elastic and tie-down loops. With belt loops and a jacket attachment loop at rear.
