Our Upstride Pants provide superior performance for moving fast in the backcountry on long, high-output tours thanks to a stretchy, highly-breathable, moisture-managing fabric and a clean, dynamic design. Refined to just the essentials, the Upstrides have a soft, energetic feel, made from two fabrics bonded together: a 100% recycled polyester stretch-knit exterior and an embossed polyester interior. This combination creates pants with exceptional airflow, wickability and stretch. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents saturation and increases abrasion resistance. The interior has fully-taped seams and slides effortlessly over your skin and baselayers. Designed for motion, the waist has a low-profile, stretchy waistband with belt loops and customizable OppoSet(R) adjustment for a personalized fit. Gaiters create a tenacious bond to seal out snow yet allow easy access to make buckle adjustments or change from downhill to uphill mode; a three-setting snap adjustment and a zipper at the bottom hem lets you fine-tune the gaiter’s fit to match the size of your boot’s cuff. Tall, crampon-compatible scuff guards reinforce the inside of the legs and the bottom hem when you’re testing out your newly-sharpened edges or scrambling over abrasive rock. Two thigh pockets double as vents to keep you cool on the long haul; an additional high-thigh cargo pocket secures your essentials. With a Concealed RECCO(R) reflector. Fair Trade Certified(TM) sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor.
