When you ride like it's your job (and maybe it is), the men's Patagonia Snow Guide pants provide tough, breathable, soft-shell performance with forgiving flex to you moving freely.
For those who make their living off guiding and those who are mainly focused on guiding friends to their favorite backcountry ski spot, there's the Patagonia Snow Guide Pant. This stretchy softshell pant offers plenty of mobility and breathable comfort for long ski tours in the backcountry. The nylon, polyester, and spandex blend will move with you up steep bootpacks and gradual skintrack climbs, and it'll stay plenty breathable too, ensuring that you won't start sweating through your layers. When you start to work up a sweat on the most strenuous missions, the back thigh vents will let in cool air for some serious temperature regulation. Elasticized suspenders keep your pants secure, while gaiters in the ankle keep snow out of your boot when you hike and ski through deep snow. A metal buckle at the ankle offers easy adjustment even with gloves on, and zippered hand and thigh pockets round everything out, ensuring that you have storage for smaller safety gear, maps, and anything else you need.
