The Alpine Light Pants, by Lowe
Alpine are designed to satisfy the needs of the fast moving alpinist who is
counting ounces. These no nonsense pants cut straight to the core of what is
important, cutting out the cumbersome frills. They weigh in at just 13.5oz. Made
with GORE-TEX® PACLITE® fabric they are 100% waterproof.
Not only can you count on the
Alpine Light pant to get you through the storm, they will also get you over the
mountain and up the ice wall. The cut offers articulated knees, a roomy crotch
panel for added freedom and volume adjustment at the calf. There is a reinforced
seat and an elastic waist with cord.
The Alpine Light pants also
feature full-length side zippers with storm flap, allowing for an easy over the
boot entry when an unexpected storm hits, as well as quick removal when the
threat passes. There is ankle gripper elastic to hold the boot and 2 pockets
with water resistant zippers.
All this for just 13.5oz. There
is no longer an excuse to get caught unprepared in a storm again. The Alpine
Light pants are a do anything go anywhere addition to the outdoor wardrobe.
