Can anyone recommend a model of waterproof trousers with leg / seat zips that enable one to drop the seat while wearing a harness (without unbuckling leg loops)? Intended use is mountaineering on long technical rock routes, e.g. Bugaboos.
My current pair are Mountain Hardwear men's ice climbing trousers in size small, which have one huge zip running from ankle to ankle across the back. They are fantastic and have done sterling service for almost 20 years, but Mountain Hardwear don't make that style any more.
I can't seem to find replacements. Needlesports recommended the Women's Manaslu pant, but they don't fit me at all. Any other suggestions? Obscure brands welcome!
