Updated for Fall 13, the NWAlpinist Salopette was created with input from experienced alpinists, and has been used everywhere from the North Cascades to Mt. Everest. The NWAlpinist Salopette has been part of significant first ascents around the world. It truly is the ultimate softshell bib pant. Featuring a water-resistant through-the-crotch zipper for easy relief, two chest pockets, a thigh pocket, grommets on the cuff and a reinforced crampon patch, the simple design allows one to put the garment on and forget about it. No spindrift down the back of your pants, no cold spot where a jacket rides up under the harness, only pure functionality. Tweave's Durastretch fabric technology enhances freedom of movement in the legs. Made in Oregon.
