You'll ski anything that has snow on it from remote ridges in the backcountry to a snowy tree run in the woods at your local ski hill, and the Millet Men's Gakona GTX Pant protects you wherever you roam. Its three-layer Gore-Tex Soft Shell Saporo membrane with fully taped seams gives this pant guaranteed waterproof protection against some of the stormiest weather out there, and it remains highly breathable with a softer and more supple feel than conventional hardshells. The nylon exterior is stretchy so you can hike up ridges without any restrictions, and the brushed fleece backing provides excellent against-the-skin comfort and a touch of warmth. The Gakona's ergonomic cut follows the contours of your lower body in order to eliminate bulk wherever possible. The back of the waistband rises up your back for additional coverage that you appreciate after epic yard sales, while heat-sealed seams prevent seepage along the joints. Zippered vents at the side release excess heat when you work up a sweat. You can remove the suspenders and rely on the adjustable tabs to keep your pants on. Inner gaiters keep snow out of your boots, and this pant can connect to your jacket in order to completely block out winter's weather. Millet also reinforced the cuffs for long-lasting durability.
