The perfect pants for difficult Alpine crests, high-mountain tours and other challenging activities where the material needs to be 100% reliable - the Tupilak Pant by Mountain Equipment! These pants are made from three-layer Gore-Tex Pro fabric that is absolutely wind and waterproof in all weather conditions. Still, it is highly vapor permeable so that breaking out in a sweat in the face of a difficult ice wall will not leave you soaked.
The pants are cut into a tight fit so that you enjoy perfect freedom of movement while not being handicapped by an excess of material. Yet, there is still enough space for a second layer of clothing underneath, should temperatures fall very low. The preformed knees prevent the pants from running up while climbing.
When climbing advanced slopes, the two-way zips can be used to allow additional venting. The adjustable waistband and suspenders keep the pants in place and prevent them from running up or down.
As they are often used for difficult climbs where crampons are needed, the insides of the legs are reinforced against abrasion and wearing out. There are also reinforcements to protect the pants from sharp edges on ice screws.
Integrated gaiters that keep out snow and wetness come in particularly handy on snowy crests or glacier tours.
These pants are designed for nothing less than the most difficult conditions you could possibly face - the Mountain Equipment Tupilak Pant.
