When it feels like you're snorkeling in a wave of pow instead of gliding over it, you need the tough protection of the Scott Men's Vertic GTX 3L Pants. Made to keep the nastiest weather at bay, these pants are crafted from flexible polyester with a durable three layer Gore Tex membrane. This construction, combined with the removable bib and fully taped seams, provides superior waterproof protection from fresh groomers to thick snow layers in the backcountry. The adjustable suspenders and boot gaiters stop snow from slipping through the cracks, while the thigh vents offers necessary breathability when the sun makes an appearance. And since there are multiple pockets, you have room to store your phone, wallet, and snacks.
