Part of the backcountry's allure is that it's always changing, but this same unpredictability can make dialing in your gear difficult. Dynafit designed the Chugach WS Women's Pant to make it easy, though, with a combination of Windstopper 3L fabric and stretch woven polyester to stop the wind from sapping your heat. While the front of the pant is made from Windstopper, sections of the back are comprised of hardshell that's been treated with a DWR coating to improve water resistance, so you won't get wet if things turn unexpectedly soggy. Dynafit also taped all the seams for improved weather protection and included outer thigh vents to help you stay cool when you're booting up coolies. Articulated knees allow smooth mobility, ankle gaiters keep snow out of your boots, and the adjustable waistband means you can leave the belt at home without worrying about your pants ending up around your ankles.
