There's nothing worse than going for that fancy move with your foot and putting your crampon right through your brand-new pants. Not to worry, Arc'teryx added reinforced instep patches on the Men's Psiphon AR Pant to prevent crampon stabbing and the inevitable nicks and slices from ski-edges. The alpine-specific trim fit reduces excess bulk without hindering leg motion, and three total zippered pockets make sure that you have access to your valuables during the course of your day. The burly, 4-way stretch fabric makes sure that if you can't make the reach on your latest climbing venture, you'll at least know it's because you skipped yoga, not because your pants could flex far enough.
