Their wide range of features leaves nothing to be desired and meets all outdoor requirements!
Whether backcountry touring, skiing, mountaineering, or ice climbing - Salewa Antelao 2 GTC C-knit pants are just as fit for cold, wet weather as they are for harsh alpine conditions. Thanks to durable triple-layer Gore-Tex laminate, these pants are immune to sharp rocks and abrasion. It is definitely recommendable to wear them along with long underpants, i.e. such made of merino wool or powerstretch. However, the feeling of their modern linings on the skin is not so bad, either. The leg cuffs are equipped with quite robust scuff guards, which makes them resistant to abrasion from ski boots, ski edges, and crampons. The waistband is particularly elastic and serves as additional protection against wind and snow. However, it can also be removed. Suitable suspenders are a good solution, as well. Salewa Antelao 2 GTX C-Knit Pants are made of a non-elastic material. However, their preformed cut allows for enough freedom of movement for negotiating sharp bends. At the same time, the pant legs are not too wide. The leg cuffs are equipped with two waterproof zip pockets. The ventilation zippers on the sides of the pants are also waterproof and provide access to the pockets of the pants you wear underneath. There are also elastic gaiters attached to the leg cuffs as well as shoe hooks to be attached to ski boots. The design of the ergonomically preformed waistband is quite sophisticated, as well. It has a cover strip with double locking buttons in the front, belt loops, and lateral hook-and-loop closures for width adjustment without a belt.
When the situation requires resilient pants protected against weather and abrasion, it is always good to have Salewa Antelao 2 GTX C-Knit Pants handy!
