Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

These are storm-chasing pants, featuring a shell material that cuts through unstable weather and provides the full stretch necessary for moving fast in the backcountry. The outer material of stretch-woven nylon is lightweight and durable, with plenty of give for dicey recoveries. A waterproof/breathable barrier inside the 3-layer fabric package provides complete foul-weather security. Skin-friendly brushed tricot smoothes the waist and controls moisture. The welded seam construction creates a clean design that increases weather-resistance and makes these pants especially soft and compressible. Heavy-duty edge guards protect lower legs and gaiters, which have gripper elastic, adjustable cam buckles and tie-down loops that form a tight bond with boots. Articulation at the seat and knees is perfect for getting schooled in some funk. The men's pants have a drop-seat design with two-way zips and removable suspenders. H2No Storm is Patagonia's waterproof/breathable barrier. More of a classification than a specific technology, shells with H2No Storm utilize a range of laminates and coatings made from varying applications of polyester and/or polyurethane to achieve a standard of waterproofness and breathability that's best suited for a specified performance range.

Patagonia makes the waterproof breathable Men's Chute To Thrill Pants for backcountry skiers who never miss a dawn-patrol tour or post-storm ride. Welded seams shave weight while increasing the H2No stretch-woven fabric's already excellent weather protection. Patagonia lined the Chute To Thrill Pants with soft brushed tricot for warm days when you don't need base layers, and the drop seat's long zippers double as ventilation zips. Wear these ski pants with the suspenders for pow days, or take them off when the time comes for spring corn snow.
