Simple descriptive name, simple functional pants. The Light Pants from Crazy Idea are a full-length thin-nylon wind pant. With zippers down the side they can be quickly donned over a skin suit or softshell to provide protection from the wind. And at an ultralight weight, they make a great checklist item for a race. The pants have an elastic waist and cuff and can be stowed in a hidden back pocket. They also feature polyester/spandex stretch zones on the inner thighs and lower back.

  • Athletic fit was designed with skimo racing in mind.
  • Pants can be packed down into an internal waist pocket for storage.
  • Side zips let you put on and take off the pant while wearing boots & skis.
  • Matches the Tempest Light jacket for head to ankle wind protection.
  • Meets the UTMB/CCC checklist requirements.

Question from Aaron O
 
I am doing 2018 PDG and looking for an overpant for my race suit - it needs to be light but also something I am going to be happy to have at 11k' in the middle of the night - are these robust enough? What about water-resistance? Same for the matching jacket? (I really like to match.)

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Aaron! Woo, PDG! Let us know how it goes! They're extremely light and fast but robust isn't the word I'd use to describe them. Water resistance is fairly minimal. Dry snow? No problem. Super wet, heavy snow? The fabric might get a bit overwhelmed. I could be wrong so you'll want to double check, but I'm pretty sure you need a top and bottom insulating layer for that race? The Crazy Idea Half Blade, Dynafit Mezzalama Alpha Pants, or Millet Pierra Menta Alpha Pant would all be really solid, suitable options for an active insulating layer with high breathability, some water resistance, and full side-zips.

Insulation not required for pants but these don't sound like the answer? Any other idea?

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Aaron, these were designed as a backup race/wind layer, exactly for your use case. It's enough to block the wind and add a few degrees, but they aren't insulated. They are predominantly thin, light nylon, same as other pants in the category. They have a DWR to shed precip, but it's not a full Gore membrane or anything.

Question from Jon
 
Hi!!

What size would you recomend in Crazy Idea Lignt Pant for me: 5´9´´ - 5´10´´ (176-177 cm) tall, 33 - 34 in (87cm) waist, and 154 -158 lb (70 - 72 kg) weight, man.

Thank you so much!

Hi Jon, you could do either the M or L. Since it's an overpant, the L would be a bit easier to take on and off.

Answer from jbo
 
Hi Mark,
1. Easy, that's me. I prefer the large, but you could get into the medium if you like it tight.
2. Unfortunately the Flash pant has been discontinued.
