The Black Diamond Men's Mission Pant is here to serve whether your objective is a steep skin in the backcountry or a steeper downhill in the resort. Gore Tex gives this thin three layer shell reliable waterproof breathable protection for powder days and intense snowfall. Fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing a single snowflake from seeping through. Black Diamond also equipped the Mission Pant with angled, offset side zippers for fully circulated ventilation. There are more zippers on each cuff for easy access to ski boots and the pant's integrated snow gaiters. Keprotec reinforced the cuffs for long lasting protection against crampons and ski edges. The Pieps Pocket fits Black Diamond's Pieps avalanche beacon perfectly, and it has Poron XRD foam to protect the beacon from impacts.
