As part of our Ascent range, it features Stretch Nylon Woven Proflex™ with carefully zoned panels that are designed to cope with the increased abrasion and exposure of technical ascents without critically inflating the weight. A slim, tailored cut with articulated knees provides far better freedom of movement than a traditional waterproof pant. The flat semi-elasticated waistband is comfortable with a harness, a plus a pair of zipped hem gussets enables you to expand the cuff for large mountaineering boots.
Stripped back but high functioning, this is the ultimate in fast, light, free-moving protection for committed alpine adventurers.
Feels like a softshell, protects like a hardshell. Proflex™ is our own waterproof membrane offering outstanding comfort at high intensities and in wild weather. Developed to offer stretch and exceptional breathability, the Proflex™ PU membrane has natural elasticity. It works in harmony with recycled knitted or woven fabrics to maintain this stretch and achieve a lightweight, soft, and flexible 3-layer waterproof fabric. The inner fabrics of Proflex™ laminates have excellent wicking properties. They work with the hydrophilic membrane to accelerate the process of moisture movement away from the body and out through the system. A DWR treatment on the face fabric keeps the membrane functioning at its best.
