Essential winter gear
Some of the latest and greatest in winter outerwear
Backcountry Guide Pants (Men's) from Patagonia
"From winter whiteouts to spring's final chutes, our Backcountry Guides keep up with every summit push and ski descent. The rugged 4-way-stretch polyester (100% recycled)/spandex double weave resists weather and breathes freely, while all-recycled polyester ripstop with waterproof/breathable H2No® barrier in the seat and knee panels provide extra protection. A brushed interior and microfleece-lined waistband add comfort, and zippered, mesh-lined thigh vents keep you cool on uphill grinds. Other details include removable 3-point suspenders; a 2-way zippered fly; gusseted, zippered cuffs with 2-position snaps, edge guards and internal mini-gaiters. With water-resistant zippered pockets: two front, one vertical thigh, one back hip."
