Outdoor Research Men's Apparel Clothing Blackpowder Pants - Men's-Pewter-Small 2429410008006.
The Outdoor Research Blackpowder Pant keeps your lower bits dry while you're working and playing in the snow. Whether you're pushing up the mountain for a pre-work tour, digging pits, or setting off hand charges because that's what you do for work, these pants give you pro-level protection in a wide range of winter environments. The burly 200D nylon fabric is laminated with a fully waterproof and breathable Pertex Shield+ membrane that'll stand up the worst conditions you'll run into, and the knees, cuffs, and hem are all reinforced to take a serious beating from ski edges, rocks, ropes, and biting snow snakes. Fully taped seams take the waterproofing up a notch, and detachable suspenders and ankle gaiters keep things tight so snow doesn't sneak in through the gaps when you're getting down and dirty. Maybe best of all, the Blackpowder has a whole mess of pockets--zippered hand, thigh, back, and beacon--to keep all your key gear handy, whether you're out doing 6am patrol routes or knocking out some pre-work pow laps.

A true workhorse, the super-durable Blackpowder men's snow pants are built to hold up to the demands of mountain professionals, season after season.
Outdoor Research recognizes that, for some, skiing is more than a life style, its life and they have created the Men's Blackpowder Pants specifically for that in mind. You'll stay protected from the elements with the waterproof and windproof construction, yet zipper vents and breathability allow you to cool down when necessary. Since you can't be bound by "limits," they've also packed it with outstanding durability and built in RECCO reflector for if things get hairy. Bottom line, the Blackpowder pants will get you to the top of the mountain and back down again, and again, and again...
