Outdoor Research Mens Alpenice Pants Baltic Description

  • Brand : Outdoor Research
  • Season : AW17

  • The Outdoor Research Alpenice Pant is a fantastic-looking winter climbing trouser for cold and icy conditions. They have a Polartec Alpha insulation lining in the upper half which is super breathable and holds in warmth even when it’s damp or wet. Highly breathable and waterproof AscentShell fabric is used from the knee upwards whilst below the knee a water resistant and very windproof tough softshell fabric is used with crampon patches to protect against ski edges and frontpoints. They feel incredibly light, flexible and cosy to wear but please note that they don't have hand pockets.

      I have to give these 5 stars, even though the lack of hand pockets is annoying and the slipping waist buckle a complete pain. Absolutely brilliant in all other aspects. Really light and comfortable to wear. Super breathable but warm on cold stances and waterproof as near as damn it. They also seem remarkably tough and durable for something so light. Ive replaced the buckle with a Sea-to-Summit 25mm plastic side release one which works fine, and am seriously considering sending them off to get hand pockets sewn into them! I shall definitely be wearing these next winter!!
      YES Stephen (Needle Sports staff) would recommend this item
