Men's Alibi Pants™

Style# 56115OR

Designed using feedback from the IFMGA Test Team, the Alibi Pants are our top-of-the-line, purpose-built ice climbing pants. Ventia Hybrid™ soft shell construction provides protection from wind, snow and rain, allows for high breathability where body heat builds, and offers stretch for athletic movement. The ice-climbing-specific tapered fit and scuff guards prevent crampons from catching, puncturing or tearing excess fabric at the cuff, allowing you to focus on placing your next piece of gear.

Great for ice climbing (Review by ChooChoo)

I have both the OR Cirque and Alibi pants and like them for different reasons. Both are a great slim fit -- if you have skier's thighs you'll probably want to size up. I have a 29" waist & 30" inseam and size S is perfect on me. On the Alibi's I can barely fit a base layer underneath them (although rarely need a base layer as it has a micro fleece lining).

Both have adjustable waists. Because of the slim fit, the pockets don't hold much -- I keep my cell phone in the thigh pocket.

The Cirque is lighter and stretchier. Easier to high step with them. I'll also use them in the early spring & late fall for hiking, climbing, etc. The Alibi is probably 5 - 10 degrees warmer than the Cirque. The material is also heavier then the Cirque. I'll use the Alibi down to 15 - 20 degrees by themselves and below 0 F with a base layer. I like that the Cirque has a zipped back pocket and the Cirque lace hook is bigger so it stays on better. The Cirque also has a drawcord cuff closure, but my version of the Alibi does not.

On both, especially the Alibi, I'd like to see longer front zipper.

When ice climbing, if I'm moving fast and doing routes at my limit, I'll wear the Cirques (lighter and stretchier) with our without a base layer depending on the weather. If it's going to get colder, i'm doing an extended climb, or if it's windy I'll wear the Alibis.
