Serrated alpine ridges can take you to a different world, one of daunting exposure and breathtaking views. And they’re typically guarded by thickets of barbed devil’s club, crevassed glaciers and endless talus fields. Our super-tough Guide Pants use our best-ever Guide fabric, a Polartec® Power Shield® stretch-woven blend (nylon/polyester/spandex) with Hardface® Technology that dramatically improves the Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish’s resistance to wind, water, snow and abrasion, while remaining stretchy and highly breathable. The features are pared to the bare essentials for technical climbing pants: pull-on waist (flat front with drawcord, elastic back), three zippered pockets (two front, one rear) and articulated knees. Further detailing includes a brushed interior for next-to-skin comfort and trim, elasticized cuffs that fit well over alpine boots, with tie-down grommets for attaching under-heel cords.

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
