Price Paid: $255
One of the greatest pairs of pants I ever owned...until all the "waterproof zippers" completely blew out, all the pockets went first and then the side zips, leaving me at 2500 meters with duct tape wrapped around my leg to hold it closed. That sucked. The stitching on the zippers needs improvement, the pockets need baffles so you don't rip the inner liner every time you open them. great idea, but fix the little details that leave you high and...wet.

Wet, cold and nasty weather does little to lessen the alpine confidence of Cloudveil's highly credentialed Koven shell pants. The primary reason is proven 70-denier Cloudburst Stretch Plus fabric, which provides more flexibility than standard shells while still sealing out the pounding or puking elements. Hip-to-hem side zips vent excess heat during uphill grinds and allow removal over plastic boots, while Dynatec insteps survive on-point or on-edge wear. When weather in the alpine is certain to be foul, this is the pant to rely on.
