Men's Skyward II AscentShell Pants


Award-winning ski pants crafted with breathable waterproof AscentShell™ technology

Built with the best of what outdoor technology has to offer, the Skyward II pants are an alpine-sport game changer. Crafted with best-in-class AscentShell™ technology, these expert men’s snow pants feature a 3-layer, electrospun membrane that’s as amazing at performance as it is at sounding fancy. It offers unparalleled breathability that will keep you cool as you ascend hills or do late-season telemarking, and provides enough wind-resistance to make intense gusts feel like a whisper. This technology also makes these pants so waterproof, you could stay dry if wearing them in a monsoon (not that you’d want to wear snow pants in a monsoon, but hey, you do you). Then, there’s the features. During days in the backcountry, you’ll make good use of the avalanche beacon pocket and the scuff guards at the inner ankles. When just being a human outside in snow, you’ll stay the right temperature with these pants’ internal gaiters and zippered thigh vents. So slip on these pants with your Skyward II Jacket, adjust their waist tabs to perfect the fit, and set out into elements feeling invincible.

Since 2016, Outdoor Research’s proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospun process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes.
