Crazy Idea Pressing Pant


Crazy Idea’s powder-performer Pressing Pant is made for those deep days trail breaking or questionable weather. With a more relaxed fit than their ski-mountaineering pants the Pressing Pant incorporates a wind and waterproof membrane to fend off the elements. It retains Crazy’s signature style and of course is light and flexible for going uphill. On hotter spring days you will find four mesh-backed side-zip pockets that also function as vents. Zip ‘em up when the weather gets nasty and the Pressing Pant is an impressive technical shell. If you live in the rainy Northwest and/or insist on wearing clothing with a hard-shell membrane, at least make it a Crazy Idea so you can still summit in style and comfort.

  • Four side zipped pockets that function dually as vents.
  • Side-zipped cuff with bellow to fit popular boots.
  • Internal elastic gaiter to keep that powder out.
  • High strength seams for extra durability and abuse.
  • Reflective details for higher visibility and safety.
  • Back zipper pocket for extra items.
  • YKK sealed zippers.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Jon
Hi I'm wondering how these fit compared to the dynafit Mercury?

I'm 6', 33" ish inseam, 171lbs and wondering what size you'd recommend?

It mentions that they're flexible. Does that mean 4 way stretch? I went hunting but I can't find any other info about these either on Crazy Idea's page or elsewhere.

Answer from eric
Jon-These pants in a size large have a 32" waist unstretched and a 36" stretched waist measurement. The inseam is measuring at 33". Depending on your waist width you may be in the medium. As far as stretch goes, they do have a 4-way stretch.
