Description

As part of our technical Ascent range, it is built from our lightest Matrix double-weave stretch fabric. While the tight external weave with DWR coating is extremely resistant to wind, weather and abrasion for all-day ascents on exposed rock, the lofted internal fibres of the two-layer fabric ensure the rapid dispersal of moisture. The slim cut is ideal for controlled, accurate ascents and, in tandem with the natural four-way stretch of the fabric, the diamond gusset and knee articulation deliver all the leg movement you could want.

With three zipped pockets, reinforced double-stitch seams and a flat elasticated waistband, this is your go-to pant for steep, challenging warm-weather climbs.
