You're a simple dude you like your chutes straight, your lines steep, and your parking lot beers cold although, you'd never turn down a beer, cold or not. The Mountain Hardwear Men's Straight Chuter Pants agree with your simple ski bum ethics with a no frills design that gets the job done during most days thanks to a breathable and waterproof softshell material and fully taped seams.You're not going to find a bunch of needless features on the Straight Chuters. Instead, what you'll find is simple functionality with minimal pockets and a single outer thigh vent. The two hand pockets house a hand warming fleece lining, while the single thigh pocket is big enough to store a trail or topo map. The waist is adjustable through the two hook and loops tabs, but it includes belt loops, so you can go ahead and throw your own belt on there, too. The laminated softshell fabric has fully taped seams, making it adequate protection for all but the wettest storm days. And it's super breathable when you're boot packing or skinning to your line.
