Thanks to 10 years of dedicated testing from a hardworking team of patrollers and mountain guides, we've built the Mountain Utility Pants, the burliest mountain work pants available. Made to resist the wear and tear of mountain professionals, they have a tough H2No Performance Standard shell made from robust 100% nylon oxford- weave fabric for a stubborn resistance to abrasion and complete waterproof, windproof and breathable performance. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated and increases durability. Reinforced with a crotch gusset for even more abrasion resistance, the Mountain Utility Pants feature articulated knees for unlimited motion and a brushed-tricot lining that wicks moisture and glides smoothly over layers so you can move freely. Leg details include thigh vents to quickly release heat, fully featured gaiters to seal out snow, tough scuff guards that protect the inside of the leg and the bottom hem and water-resistant zippers with slim zip installation to reduce bulk and weight. The waist features adjustable elastic tabs to personalize the fit (especially after a burger and beer at lunch), a two-snap closure and a zip fly. Other details include an embedded RECCO avalanche rescue reflector and five zippered pockets two handwarmers, two thigh pockets and one rear pocket. Fair Trade Certified sewn.
