Product Description

Dirtbags and mountain professionals alike find the Guide Pants indispensable for go-anywhere and do-anything epics. The stretch-woven fabric has excellent give for the motions of climbing and skiing; it's breathable, weather-resistant and withstands gnarled alpine terrain. The soft, brushed interior provides next-to-skin comfort and a clean, low-bulk waistband is designed to ride smoothly under a harness. The gusseted bottom cuffs have flap-protected 10" reverse-coil DWR (durable water repellent) zippers, scuff guards, gripper-elastic and tie-down loops to seal out snow. The glued-on thigh pocket closes with a glued-in, reverse-coil DWR zipper. We also glue in the reverse-coil DWR zippered hand pockets. 2-way fly for easier harness-wearing relief and wide, contoured belt loops that don't chafe under a loaded pack, and a trim, shaped fit that still allows for light underlayers. Imported.


Durable, DelugeĀ® DWR-treated, 4-way stretch-woven fabric is light with great stretch recovery and shape-retention, while still providing freedom of movement and protection against the wind, moisture and abrasion
Snap closure at waist with 2-way, no-hassle zippered fly; wide, contoured belt loops minimize seam bulk under a harness
Clean front waistband with side elastic and soft, brushed tricot inside for comfortable fit; trim fit through the seat and articulated knees
Brushed mesh polyester pocket bags line the welded-in, reverse-coil DWR (durable water repellent) zippered hand pockets; single, welded-on thigh pocket seals with a lightweight, welded-in reverse-coil DWR zipper for clean finish
500-denier, wrap-around ankle guards withstand abuse; designed for a trim fit that accommodates a light baselayer


Bottom cuffs have 10" gusseted side zippers for pulling pants on over boots, with two snap positions for the protective zipper-covering flap; one for when the zipper and gusset are closed, the other when open
Cuffs also have gripper elastic and loops for attaching an under-the-heel cord, to secure snug over boots
7-oz, 90 denier 60% nylon/29% polyester/11% spandex, with a DelugeĀ® DWR finish
510 g (18 oz)
