Well-known for its high quality hardgoods, Black Diamond has entered the apparel game this year, debuting a new line of high-performance outdoor clothing that supports the activities the company knows best. The Men's Dawn Patrol Approach Softshell Pant was designed for ski touring and alpine climbing adventures, or trips that include both during the same outing, allowing for dynamic movement while providing water-repellent protection. Stretchy softshell fabric made by Schoeller textiles, a Swiss company who specializes in high-performance fabrics, along with gusseted construction, allow for optimal range of movement. The Schoeller fabric is treated with a NanoSphere DWR finish that utilizes nano particles on the fabric surface that repel water and dirt, keeping the fabric dry and clean. The zippered lower leg with an expandable gusset allows the pant to fit over ski or mountaineering boots so you can switch up mid-trip or use one or the other depending on the day's activities, and the drawcord hem acts like a gaiter to seal out snow and moisture. Four pockets give you plenty of room to pack along tools and supplies, and the two-way zippered fly allows you to relieve yourself quickly with ease in the backcountry. All in all, Black Diamond is a company of backcountry touring experts whose trusted design and engineering know-how is making great headway into the apparel world, this pant being a case in point.
