A complement to—rather than a pants version of—the new Alpenice Jacket, the new Alpenice Pant is a do-it-all high-end pant for cold environments. The gusseted cuff fits mountaineering or ski boots, and the Polartec Alpha insulation holds in warmth even when it’s damp or wet. AscentShell fabric breathes but keeps out wind and rain, and tough scuff guards handle ski edges and crampon scrapes.

Do not discontinue these!

I hope OR doesn't discontinue these pants. They are by far the best hardshell pants I've come across. I can't rave enough about them. I own the black version and these things are so well thought out. They have great ventilation, a comfy interior lining that also helps wick away sweat. I've snowshoed and cramponed in thigh high snow without issue. And, combined with OR gaiters, Even without the gaiters, the fabric on the lower pants are tough, and I've been happily surprised by how there's not even a single sign of damage from constant rubbing up aginst ice, rock and my crampons themselves. The built in belt is durable and simple. Pockets are located where you need them.

First pair of bc pants in 15 years.

I have used these pants about 5 times and love them overall. Only downside and might be a deal breaker is keeping the belt tight. I am still working on a solution and with no belt loops not sure what to do.

Perfect Winter and Early Spring Pants

I first demo these pants at the Bozeman Ice Fest where the weather was in low teens and it kept me warm the entire time! These are ideal pants for Winter and Early Spring outings. I have worn these on winter scrambles and they perform great. The thigh zippers are the key feature that make these pants idea! I run very hot, so it's perfect to have those to unzip and cool off during high exertion activities. I've worn these even without gaiters, and they do a pretty good of keep the elements out of your boots. I have also worn these skiing and the bottoms are JUST wide enough to fit over ski boots, so they are pretty versatile pants! These probably might be too warm for later spring early summer outings but will find out in a few months. So if you're looking for a do it all winter pants and you'll be in the background or down the ski slopes, these pants can do it all! I am 5'10 and 170 and I wear size Medium. The ONLY complaint I have about these pants is that the belt hook doesn't come undone, so for someone my size it's just a little tight around the hips to get on them, but once you get them on it's very comfortable. I wouldn't wear a size Large as that would be too baggy for my purposes. The pockets are also perfectly places where you can access them with or without a harness on.

So far very happy with this product!!!

Bought this pants for an expedition to climb in Peru. So far I've used them only In the canadian Rockies and they are very light and comfortable. Ice climbing with them was ok but I'm wondering how waterproof they are. The side zippers are great!! They allow heat to escape very easily so don't have to hesitate whether to wear long jones underneath or not. I'm wondering how durable they they are as the fabric seems fragile but I guess they are for mountaineering more than ice climbing. So far I love them

I was conserned because I have big quads but they fit well. The big zips on the sides for ventilation are fantastic and the cords to hold the pant leg down work as well as proper gators.

Bought these for a snowshoe trip to Tilley Jane cabin on Mt Hood. I was impressed by the quality and fit. Flexible enough for a big guy like me (6"4", 240, ordered XL). Plenty warm without having to wear extra insulation. Another great but from OR.

Interesting pant for unique circumstances.

The pant is very warm and very durable so far. Can be used for skiing in conditions that lead to "Type 2 fun". These pants will keep you safe when it's colder, wetter, and more miserable than usual! My main problem with these pants is that the built-in belt is hard (impossible thus far) to disconnect. My waist is 36-38 but my legs are enormous and the belt just barely gets over them. Once I manage to shimmy my body into place, everything seems to fit relatively nicely.

Awesome winter alpine pants

My new favorite pants for snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, mountaineering. With the AscentShell upper, Polartec Alpha and big vent zips, they are more breathable than a soft shell, but with a big boost in warmth and water resistance. Super lightweight for what they do. Burly stretchy lower leg fabric fits over ski boots and guards against sharp edges. Zips down small enough for a close fit on mountaineering boots too. Ankle draw cord / instep lace feature works beautifully. No snow gets in, even post holing thru deep snow. Zippers are easy to operate with gloves on. Cut of the upper leg is generous enough to fit those of us with developed quads. Fabric stretch and cut are great for movement. No resistance when lifting the knees while climbing.

Discussions

Does this pant have an internal elastic gaiter with tie-down loops for attaching an elastic cord to loop around boot soles? Compared to the Cirque Pant, how tight is the cuff?

Josh

Hi Josh, Sorry for the late response. These pants do not have an internal gaiter. They feature a side zipper that has a 4" gusset to fit over AT boots. On the inside of the cuff there is a hem drawcord that you can pull under your boot and hook onto the exposed cord on the other side. With the side zipper closed, the cuff (bottom opening of the pants) measures at 15.75", 16.5", 17.25", 18", 19", 20" for a size XS, Small, Medium, Large, XL, XXL ,respectively. Add 4" to the cuff with the side zipper fully open. In size Small and Medium, the Cirque pants have equal cuff measurement, In size Large through XXL the cuff measurement is a 1/2" bigger. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul
