If your sights are set on the highest peaks and the biggest challenges you can find, then the Patagonia Galvanized Pant may just be the thing for you. Designed for alpinists, but versatile enough for anyone who plays in the mountains, this shell pant features a three-layer H2No membrane and a stretchy yet durable face fabric, giving you comfortable movement and no-nonsense weather protection for your treks to some of earth's most isolated environments. A soft knit backer wicks moisture to keep you comfortable, while drop-seat zippers double as thigh vents to cool you down when you start to work up a sweat on steep pitches and rocky scrambles. The bib-straps combine with the adjustable waist to give you a secure fit, and remove easily when not needed. Watertight pockets keep important gear and items safe and secure, and the leg cuffs feature a minimalist adjustment system that fits neatly around a pair of alpine boots for a low-bulk fit.

- Backcountry.com refers to the men's version

The Galvanized Pants offer dynamic performance and protection. They use a stretchy 3-layer H2No(R) fabric (100% recycled polyester/spandex) that delivers full mobility and exceptional waterproof protection, while a soft jersey-knit backer wicks moisture for an amazing level of comfort. A minimal, articulated pattern complements the fabric's stretch to enhance ease of movement, and the two large thigh pockets have waterproof zips strategically positioned for harness compatibility. The waistline has a zippered fly (with snap-tab closure) and a low-bib height that stays above a harness (supported by adjustable, elasticized, removable suspenders); it also features thigh vents that double as a drop-seat. The narrow lower legs are made specifically to be worn with climbing boots, with ultraminimal cuffs, shock-cord adjustments and tie-down loops. With a DWR (durable water repellent) finish and a slim fit. With a concealed RECCO(R) reflector. Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewn.
