Outdoor Research's Hyak Pants excel at comfort and stretch and come with a full feature set. Ideal for chilly days out on the hills.
Outdoor Research says: Midweight soft shells that provide warmth in cold conditions without hindering stretch and ease of movement.
For the lower altitude approach, your pants don't need all the bells and whistles of the alpine climb, but you still need the weather resistance, breathability, and durability you expect from technical soft shells. That's where the Hyak Pants come in, designed with a simple and streamlined feature set that gives you just what you need for fall snowshoeing and spring ski touring, without the weight or bulk of winter. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch aid the fabric's naturally movement-enhancing stretch, and an inner drawcord at the ankle allows you to cinch your pants tight to keep out snow or watch your toehold. Plus, the Hyak Pants feature a waistband that's amplified by ActiveTemp™, the thermo-regulating technology that adjusts to your body temperature to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable during high-exertion activities.
Outdoor Research's Hyak Pants are super functional and comfy mid weight soft shell trousers. The tough stretchy material allows complete range of movement as the Hyak pants move with you.
The fabric will brush off shower and snow flurries but persistent dampness will require a more waterproof layer. The pants are rich in features. 2 zipped hand warmer pockets 1 containing a clip and pocket for an avalanche beacon but the clip would also be ideal for securing keys and the like. Another zipped pocket on thigh provides extra storage options.
Plenty of adjustment is provided on the ankles, gusseted ankle zippers make it easy to get the trousers on over shoes and the drawcord adjustment makes it easy to cinch them in. The waistband does not have the stretch that the rest of the trouser has again there is draw cord adjustment and belt loops are provided.
