Every time you head out to those mountaintops, there's always a chance you'll encounter wet and cold conditions. So, why not think ahead? Whether you're hitting the slopes, preparing for a winter hike, or have a mountaineering trip planned, make these soft shell pants a part of your cold-weather arsenal. Here, a wide-legged silhouette with ankle zippers easily layers over base garments, and once on, its durable wind- and water-resistant construction – a defining aspect of our Ascent Series – creates a dependable shield against the elements. The result keeps you cool and dry, up to the summit and back, without piling on excess weight.
