Why We Love It
Stretchy, breathable, quick drying, and soft, these are some of the best pants you'll ever own. The fit is loose, but not baggy, and with cinches in, the pant legs can be shortened on hotter days. On cooler days, they're great for layering.
Where We Use It
Great for climbing, trekking, and any other high-output activity when the greater coverage and protection is desired.
An ultralight wind barrier, the Black Diamond Alpine Light Pants are the three-season solution for light, packable weather protection. Designed with a single-weave, four-way stretch fabric, they pack down so you can shove them deep into the recesses of your pack, and the DWR treated finish gives you a layer of shelter when light precip rolls in. Two rear drop pockets and zip thigh pockets stash essentials, and a ladder lock belt with belt loops and adjustable cuffs dial in the fit.
