Designed and tested by pro backcountry snowboarder, Bryan Iguchi, these utilitarian pants feature the highest quality components and technology to meet the needs of even the most demanding riders. The 3-Layer C-Knit™ material offers a comfortable stretch for added mobility and is given the GORE-TEX® treatment to provide the best weatherproofing on the market. Water repellent zippers and fully taped seams boost the waterproofing through the roof while the Stone Butt Patch, Triple Reinforced Rise and Black-Flax Hem offer extreme durability to keep the pants from breaking down when you're out in rugged terrain. If you're looking for the best of the best, these are the pants to have.
GORE-TEX® C-Knit™ - GORE-TEX® C-Knit™ fabric is a 3-layer laminate with a unique knit backer that's lighter, softer and more breathable than comparable laminate fabrics. This fabric is great for those who want the ruggedness and unmatched weatherproofing of GORE-TEX with less of that 'crunchiness' normally experienced in high-end laminates.
RECCO® - RECCO® is an advanced avalanche rescue system hidden in this outerwear that will save your butt when you need it. RECCO® is utilized by more than 700 rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar. Hopefully you'll never have to use it, but if you do you'll be glad it's there.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.

Falling has never been more enjoyable.
