Winter Mountain Overtrousers
We've put seven pairs of winter mountaineering shell trousers through their paces all season. Here's how they compare...
Marmot's Tour Pro pants have been specifically designed for the needs of European alpine climbers and ski touring activists. The blend of two super stretchy Schoeller fabrics gives the Tour Pro Pant exceptional durability and stretch.
These pants have already been used on a number of hard alpine routes and are used by all of Marmot's European Alpine climbers. The Tour Pro's are also very popular with many ski touring guides who require a flexible, durable pant which offers comfort and performance.
Match these pants up with Marmot's Genesis Jacket and XT gloves to create a very diverse winter softshell system:
The Tour Pro Pants Features:
• Schoeller blended fabrics
• Water-Resistant, Breathable, Windproof, Durable, Stretchy
• Fabric 1 = Schoeller 61792
• Fabric 2 = Schoeller 6169
Reinforced articulated knees:
Pre-bent articulated knees offer better flexibility and movement. Reinforced stitch lines on the knee ensure a lower chance of seam edges and stitching becoming damaged.
Reinforced ankle protection areas:
Rubber reinforced ankle protection offers abrasion resistance from crampons or sharp ski edges. We have also applied the rubber reinforcement in the shape of Marmot's Mdot logo to give a different look when compared to any other softshell pant.
Internal Stretch snow gaiter:
Deep Powder is now problem with the internal gaiter. The Gaiter will go around most wide ankle ski boots or plastic/leather ice climbing boots.
Elastic suspenders offer excellent adjustability and stretch. The suspenders also feature clip buckles for quick access to internal layers.
High back rear of trouser prevents cold spots:
The trouser has been designed with a high rear at the back to help eliminate cold spots across your back during activity.
Two side zipped pockets and x1 rear pocket will store GU Gells, a compass, route topo or the ever important emergency head torch. The pant also features x1 expansion pocket on the right thigh will also comfortably fit a guide book.
The Tour Pro pants use the European sizing system: 48,50,52,54,56
48 = 30 inch waist
50 = 32 inch waist
