Another top piece of kit from Mountain Equipment.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: Gore Tex XCR/ FTX Ultra
Price Paid: $250

Another top piece of kit from Mountain Equipment.

Stretch panels on the knees and groin make for excellent range of motion.

An intergral belt that has a seamless waist means no more digging into your hips whilst wearing a fully laden harness.

Crampon patches on the leg bottoms are long enough and tough enough to stop most things getting thru.

I've not found a use for all 6 of the zips included in the "Six slider rainbow zip seat" as yet.

At just a little over 6" the legs could do with being a slight bit longer and maybe add some method to attach to your shoes.

All-in-all, excellent bit of kit and highly recommended
