The Methow pants from Outdoor Research are warm softshell pants with a fleecy interior and tight like fitting giving them a point of difference to comparable softshell pants.
Outdoor Research says: Technical pants for burly warmth during winter sport.
Nestled in the heart of the Methow Valley are mountains, trails, and slopes that make the perfect playground when winter freezes everything over. Snowshoers and skiers will love the Men's Methow Pants for exploring the frosty hills of its namesake, or for taking on more demanding cold weather treks in the Himalaya or Andes. Its weather-resistant exterior doesn't sacrifice on breathability - in fact, the Methow Pants are designed with a hybrid-mapped construction for performance in variable temps. A brushed fleece interior is only placed on areas that need the extra warmth, while the rest allows easy airflow so you can work harder without letting sweat build up. Adding to your favorite soft shell qualities, the Methow Pants are enhanced with movement-mirroring stretch and UPF 50+ sun protection for frigid bluebird days when you need to think about the harsh reflection of sun on snow.
Outdoor Research's Methow Pants Methow Pants provide warmth and comfort for strenuous days on the hill during the winter months. The zoned construction gives you super soft brushed fleece inner on the around the waist and thighs to keep you toasty. The rest of the pants prioritises breathability.
The Methow pants have a very slim fit quite close to a tight preventing cold air circulating. Range of movement is unhindered thanks to the stretchiness of the pants. The outer is durable and will easily brush off showers and spindrift but you will need a more waterproof layer for when the going gets wet. 2 hand warmer pockets with fleecy interior are a great way to keep your hands warm. There are 2 zipped pockets, one on the rear the other on the thigh.
The waistband does not have the stretch that the rest of the trouser has but there is draw cord adjustment and belt loops are provided.
