Whether you're skinning up open bowls, climbing precipitous, knife like ridgelines, or ascending a massive peak, the FlyLow Men's IQ Pant offers waterproof protection and exceptional breathability for the most rigorous of backcountry tours, out of bounds bootpacks, and alpine climbs. It's also a great pant for in bounds skiing on sunny spring days when warmer temperatures make it difficult to stay comfortable without sweating profusely. And to reduce overall bulk, the pants' 12 millimeter seam tape enhances packability when you're hitting the road in search of steep, untracked lines. The key to the pants' next level breathability is the Polartec Neoshell membrane, which is actually air permeable, relying on lower internal pressure exchange than standard waterproofbreathable membranes. Subsequently, this increases the amount of water vapor transported through its sub micron membrane, speeding up evaporation of perspiration, all while blocking outside moisture and 99. 9% of wind from working inside and chilling your legs. Moving with your body on the climb up and ski down, the pants' 4 way stretch face is ultra soft and supple for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. The high performance DWR treatment and YKK waterproof zippers keep outside moisture from seeping inside and dampening your base layers. Other functional features include reinforced 500 denier Cordura cuffs for extra strength against rips and tears, as well as articulated knees for freedom to move without restriction.
