Not all of us need or want form fitting ski britches, snow pants that look like jeans, or trousers with more pockets than a pool table. Built for the minimalist, the Mountain Hardwear Men's Returnia Shell Pants feature a design ideal for skiers more interested in actually skiing than faking it. The Dry Q Core two layer membrane is designed to keep you dry inside and out whether you're getting your turns at the resort or in the backcountry, and two zippered thigh vents allow you ditch excess heat when you're working your way up the skintrack. Internal boot gaiters prevent snow from flying up your pants when you're center punching fresh lines, and the fleece lined waistband features belt loops as well as hook and loop adjusters, so you can dial in the perfect fit. Meanwhile, edge guards keep your cuffs intact in the face of ski edges and boots, and a hidden Recco reflector may give ski patrol a hand if you're caught in an in bounds slide.
