The Icefields Parkway has world-class ice climbing; it will also make any climber appreciate our newest insulated soft-shell pants. Speed Ascents are also our warmest, with an engineered design that maximizes breathability without sacrificing any of your hard-earned heat. This garment has a Slim Fit.
The durable stretch-woven shell (5.3-oz 100% polyester double weave that's 45% recycled) blocks wind and sheds water while accommodating your every high-step and delicate mixed move. Inside, low-bulk R2® (7.4-oz Polartec® Thermal Pro® polyester that's 40% recycled) warms and won't bunch up; it's welded to the shell along key seams and optimizes breathability and wicking.
What else? Stitch-free seams speed dry time, improve water-resistance, and decrease bulk. The snap waist, with a relief-friendly 2-way zippered fly, has belt loops and four-point removable suspenders. Water-resistant zippers close the two handwarmer pockets and right thigh pocket. With articulated knees and gusseted, zippered cuffs (with edge guards) made for a climbing boot fit.
Material: Recycled Polyester
Patagonia recycle used soda bottles, unusable second quality fabrics and worn out garments into polyester fibres to produce many of their clothes. This garment is recyclable through the Common Threads Recycling Program.
