Just as well suited for high stepping up as they are for hop turning down, the Patagonia Women's Kniferidge Pants are a must have for those who are vertically inclined. Made from a lightweight and stretchy three layer Polartec Power Shield Pro fabric, these pants deliver a unique balance of soft shell breathability and hard shell protection for all of your mountainous endeavors. Waterproof in everything up to a torrential downpour, these pants' seams are fully taped and watertight to keep moisture out, while the belt loops and rear jacket attachment loop allow a customizable fit and prevent snow from creeping up your back when you tomahawk after dipping your tips. Shockcord adjustments at the cuff, sewn tie down loops, and calf length welted zippers with expandable gussets come together for a cuff design that works perfectly for both alpine and ski boots. Patagonia also equipped these pants with a concealed Recco reflector just in case something goes wrong during your alpine adventure.
