Eddie Bauer First Ascent Rainier Storm Shell Pants
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $100
Suprisingly rugged for how they feel!
- Sized to fit over layers
- 7/8 zipper instead of full zip
- Not very breathable
I bought mine used through Whittaker. They have three holes in the butt area that were patched. They were obviously caused by crampons.
Problem for me is, they only have a 7/8 side zip. I would prefer a full zip. But I couldn't pass on the deal. They didn't breathe very well, which I guess most hardshell don't, but I would just unzip the side zips a little and problem solved.
For how thin they feel they are suprisingly rugged (unless you are sticking some spikes through it). I fell a few times and tumbled through rock, snow and brush.

Eddie Bauer Rainier Storm Shell Pants - Wear these with the Rainier Storm Shell Jacket for ultimate protection from rain, wind and snow. Our guides use them for both climbing and skiing.The rugged 3-layer waterproof/breathable WeatherEdge Pro fabric is rated to 20,000mm/20,000g. Like the jacket, the pants are remarkably soft and quiet. You won't find a better hardshell pant anywhere. And 20,000 feet is no place to settle for second best. Machine wash.
