When winter sets in to turn your vertical pursuits from rock to ice, slide into a pair of Outdoor Research Men's Iceline Softshell Pants and climb on. Their ultra breathable three layer stretch softshell material puts a premium on mobility, so you won't feel like you just lost half of your leg's mobility once you put them on. Their 70D face fabric resists wear from ice, rope, and gear, while the reinforced cuffs help protect that prone to wear area from your boots and crampons. Their trim fit minimized unnecessary bulk for a streamlined fit, but with a stretch cuff gusset at the hem, the pants will still fit over a bulky pair of mountaineering boots. The zippered outer thigh vents are easily accessed mid route for quick cool downs. The integrated belt and suspender compatible design mean you have a few ways to keep them riding well above your ever creeping plumber's crack.
