Product Description

REI Acme Pants provide a great micro-climate for those sports that are strenuous and movement intensive. Great for winter hiking, mountaineering, ice climbing or day hikes when the weather can go bad.


•They thrive in nearly all weather except for hot/humid conditions; think mountaineering, backcountry skiing and packing, trekking and mountain biking
•Schoeller® Dryskin fabric offers excellent breathability, minimizing sweaty build-up during sustained vigorous activity
•Plus it provides great wind-, water- and abrasion-resistance and four-way stretch comfort
•DWR (Durable Water Resistant) finish causes rain to bead up and roll off, and shrugs off all but the wettest snow
•Fully gusseted crotch and articulated knees allow great range of motion
•Features two hand pockets, welded thigh pocket and two rear welt pockets; sleek, reverse-coil zippers are bonded rather than sewn in
•Features jeans-style waistband with zipper fly, button closure and belt loops
•Leg zippers with narrow bonded tab closures ease getting pants on and off
•Double-needle stitching adds durability


Shell fabric: 80% nylon/15% polyester/5% spandex

Voted 5/5

Great pants, breathe well, stretch in all the right places and the thigh pocket is great for small essentials. I've worn them hiking, backpacking, skiing and ice climbing I don't have a single complaint. Plus they block the wind really well and shed rain like plastic. Awesome pants go buy some!
