The Cirque Pants are technical, weather resistant and breathable soft shell pants, ideal for mountaineering and ice climbing.
Outdoor Research says: The Cirque Pants are durable, technical soft shell pants built for high-energy climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing. The highly breathable, wind and weather-resistant double-weave, stretch woven fabric excels in high-mountain conditions. The zippered thigh pocket ensure energy bars and maps remain easily accessible.
The Cirque pants are extremely durable, wind and water resistant pants perfect for alpine conditions. Light enough to prevent overheating, yet durable, thanks to the tough woven construction to resist abrasion from rocks, crampons, and ski edges. They have an adjustable velcro tab around the waist which eliminates the need for a belt and have a low profile waist so they will fit nicely under a harness.
The pants have articulated knees, reinforced scuff guards and ankle height zippers so it's easy to get them on and off over your boots. They also feature 2 zippered hand warmer pockets, 1 zippered rear pocket and a zippered thigh pocket for keeping energy bars and maps easily accessible. The pants have built in boot lace hooks that will help a little to keep the snow out of the boots if you don't have gaiters. There are 3 small loops positioned on the top so you can easily attach suspenders if needed (not included).
