User Review: Eddie Bauer Men's 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.
