Do you find yourself wishing you had the ventilation of a softshell pant but just can’t give up the waterproof and windproof nature of a hard shell? If managing sweat and fending off the elements are both equally challenging and equally important to you, then the Dynafit Radical Infinium Hybrid Pant is exactly the outer layer you need. Extremely weather-proof and breathable materials, GORE-TEX Infinium and Windstopper cover most of your legs. However, in the places that tend to sweat the most, Dynafit stitched in Dynastrech for added breathability. Needless to say, this pant is the best possible combination of wind resistance, water repellency, and breathability. It has belt loops and a velcro adjustable waistband to ensure no unwanted sag - no matter how many snacks, tools, phones, or beverages you stuff into the two hip pockets and right thigh beacon pocket. Speaking of beacon pockets, there was definitely a lot of thought put into optimizing this one. Not only does it have a loop to connect your beacon leash to, but it also has an internal elastic open mesh pocket to slide your beacon in. That way, if you want to use the pocket for other small items the beacon will still be securely in place and easy to access quickly in an emergency, rather than sloshing around with all your other bits and bobs. The large, zippered thigh vents dump heat well with a membrane sewn in, so you won’t be putting on a scandalous show on the up. Also convenient should you forget to close them before skiing down since they prevent your pants from being stuffed full of snow. If you thought there was no such thing as the best of both worlds, think again. The Dynafit Radical Infinium Hybrid Pant will keep you dry from the inside out as well as the outside in - thus making it the perfect pant for any and every ski touring mission.

Questions & Reviews
A medium would probably work, you could also go with a large for a more relaxed fit. You might want to consider getting some suspenders as well, as you'll be compromising between height and waist.
Both the Dynafit Radical Infinium Hybrid and Dynafit Mercury 2 pants will have more relaxed freeride cuts. The Radical Infinium has a slightly trimmer fit, primarily in the seat and the thighs.
