Plans to summit a 14er? Dusting off your ice axes for the season? Heading out to carve powder in the backcountry? Then the Cirque II Softshell Pants are for you. Great as cold-weather hiking pants, ice climbing pants, and more, this essential outdoors garment is worth waxing poetic about. Built into their wind- and water-resistant exterior is everything you need to be prepared in the elements—a pocket designed for avalanche beacons, reinforced scuff guards to protect against crampon wear, and an ActiveTemp™ waistband that crushes it in the thermoregulation department. Plus, these cold-weather pants are gusseted and articulated in all the perfect places so you can land that cliff huck or tackle that offwidth like a pro. So slide on these pants, hook them to your boot laces if needed, and head out for adventure.
ActiveTemp™ is a thermo-regulating smart fabric treatment that manages your body temperature to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable during high-exertion activities. It self-adjusts depending on your level of exertion, sweat, and temperature to actively regulate body heat between too hot and too cold. The harder you work, the more ActiveTemp™ works to keep you comfortable.
