If the only lines in your ski days are the ones that you'll make on the way down, then resort ski pants just aren't going to work. Instead, you'll want to look toward the highly breathable Arc'teryx Men's Sawatch Pant. These pants are absolutely loaded with features that you'll enjoy on both the up, as well as the down. It starts with bonded, stretch woven softshell that keeps you nice and cool on the uphill, then moves with your body as you tackle the steeps on the way down. An adjustable, removable waistbelt paired with removable suspenders gives you plenty of configuration options, enough to tackle just about any situation you can dream up. A couple of zippered pockets combined with a cargo pocket make sure that your lip balm and fruit snacks are never far out of reach. Taped critical seams protect the areas generally prone to pressure points, since nobody likes to be driven home by the weather. Lastly, Keprotec instep patches keep the cuffs of your pants from looking like the victim of an '80s horror movie character.
