Optimized for climbers seeking strong, light legwear for all-round use, the Arc'teryx Women's Palisade Pants combine weather protection, efficient thermal regulation and breathable stretch performance. The hardwearing Burly softshell fabric brings the strength and durability of a nylon face with the comfort and moisture transport performance of a microfibre polyester backer. A DWR finish adds water repellency.The tapered fit is trim and stays out of the way while climbing or kicking in crampons. Seams are eliminated on the inner lower leg to reduce snags and potential tears, and the gusseted cuff closure accommodates mountaineering and ice climbing boots as well as most ski mountaineering boots.Two low profile zipped hand pockets securely hold smaller items, and a larger thigh pocket is easily accessible. The streamlined waist closure fits easily under a harness.
