Sometimes you actually need more protection than “checklist” pants that most folks carry during skimo races. If you’re expecting an especially long or cold race or tour, consider adding some Polartec Alpha insulation. The latest in breathable warmth, Alpha is a revelation when it comes to highly aerobic activities in cold weather. The Crazy Idea Half Blade pants feature full-length side zips so you can put on or take off your insulation while wearing ski boots and skis. The pants are also designed to be crampon-friendly, with stronger elastic material in the cuff. In certain conditions, it would be a Crazy Idea to forget these pants.
- Breathable Polartec Alpha insulates your legs above your boots.
- Zippers run down the sides for quick application and removal.
- Tighter fitting elastic cuffs are designed to avoid crampon points.
* Please note a slight color discrepancy between the product picture and our stock. The subtle piping highlight down the side of the pant shows as orange in the picture, but is actually grey.

Questions & Reviews
I'm looking for something that would work as a full-zip warm-up before skimo races. Thanks.
I think this would be a good choice. It has a slim athletic fit but not skin tight. Hope this helps.
