The Mountains require you to strike a balance between breathability and protection, fortunately, The North Face's Apex Mountain Pant finds the sweet-spot between the two. The durable yet stretchy Apex Aerobic fabric paired with articulated knees and a Keprotec kickpatch provide you with freedom of movement and rugged toughness that will make these pants a long time mountain companion.

Head out of bounds and into the backcountry on two planks with the reliable protection of these lightweight, yet durable, soft-shell pants. Wind resistant TNF Apex Aerobic material with stretch remains highly breathable when skiing across technical terrain over long distances. The exterior is treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to immediately shed light snowfall. A built-in belt keeps the waistband from riding down while maneuvering on foot or skis. Elastic gaiters prevent deep snow from soaking socks and baselayers.
- The North Face
You're heading up the ridge with skis on your back and the wind in your face, and somehow you're both freezing and swampy at the same time. If only you hadn't forgotten your Women's Apex Mountain Pants from The North Face! TNF's Apex Aerobic softshell fabric is lightweight, breathable and DWR-treated for water-resistance, which is more than you can say about the borrowed plastic nightmares you're wearing right now. The Apex also has a low-profile waistband for comfort under a pack, and a built-in belt for easy adjustments, while the softshell fabric is the stretchiest in The North Face's line. Hopefully there won't be any postholing on your next mission, but the elastic gaiters of the Apex have you covered if there is.
