All-season long, starting with first tracks and ending with mud-bog approaches, the Backcountry Guides tough it out with the tireless backcountry skier and mountaineer. They’re made with a durable, midweight Polartec® Power Shield® nylon/polyester/spandex stretch-woven blend with Hardface® Technology that dramatically improves the Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish’s resistance to wind, water, snow and abrasion - all while remaining stretchy and highly breathable. Features include zippered thigh vents (with mesh) for temperature regulation; a low-profile waist with an adjustable, built-in belt; a 2-way zippered fly for easy harness-wearing relief; one thigh and two handwarmer pockets (all zippered); articulated knees and a brushed interior for next-to-skin comfort. The gusseted, zippered cuffs have 2-position snaps, edge guards and internal mini-gaiters.

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.
