Karpos Alagna Pant


We aren’t entirely sure if the Alagna pant (pronounced uh-LAHN-ya) is supposed to be the ideal training pant for racers, the snug pant for backcountry skiers, or the “quiver of one” pant for light ‘n fast skiers. What we do know is that it’s awesome and that if you like to move quickly in the mountains, you’ll like the Alagna. Thanks to Karpos’ highly breathable and stretchy Thermodrytex Double and Thermodrytex PL+, you can wear the same pants to ski ballet class as you do setting speed records on local peaks. A DWR (durable water repellent) coating is employed from top to bottom to keep the pants clean, breathable, and weather-resistant without sacrificing breathability. The knee panels are articulated for maximum range of motion and are finished internally with thermofleece. This means a smooth, friction-free surface for your knees, even on a warm spring day. One large zippered pocket on the back holds a secret or two. Boot buckles are accessed by way of a YKK zipper in the cuff with an internal gusset that keeps everything nice and tidy. Once you try Karpos, you never go back.

  • Elastic waistband is comfortable for hours on end.
  • Zippered pocket on the back of the waistband is big enough to hold a phone, keys, or nutrition.
  • Elastic cuff keeps the pants in place during an ambitious booter or lengthy approach.
  • Reinforced cuff panels protect against ski edges, crampons, and help keep the weather out.
  • Thermodrytex Double, Thermodrytex PL+, and Thermo Fleece are cutting-edge fabrics with the light ‘n fast approach in mind.

Aaron O (used product a few times)
These are a fantastic colder weather training tight; I am 5'9" and 147 lbs, wear the size small and it is just right (not sure I would upsize for any reason, this tight is clearly intended to be a "tight"). Fabric is very high quality, brushed on the inside throughout so nice warmth, the double knees are also really nice, keep the joints toasty.

Buckle holes are not cut (they are reinforced to be cut if you want) but I wear these with Scarpa Aliens and its fine without cutting (a little air gets in). I took one star off for not having a stirrup, which would be nice but then you would have to cut the holes for buckles so choose your own adventure I guess.

One huge feature, the back pocket, which in most tights for me at least just serves as a zipper to bug me, actually fits a beacon.

Fabric is thick and warm enough for cold weather training, not sure I would use for hard efforts over 25 degrees or any kind of racing (no stirrup, too warm).

Question from Curly
Any idea on sizing for these? I'm 5'10" 150lbs, usually a 28-29in waist. Probably small? On the size chart id be XS but that seems crazy...
Answer from Teddy Young
Hey Curly, I think we have pretty similar measurements and I just finished trying these pants. As this pant designed to be a very stretchy, tight “training pant”, each size can cover quite a range. With that being said, I think the small or medium would better for you depending on if you wanted “compression”(small) or “snug”(medium). Hope that helps!

Question from TSB
Can anybody comment on Karpos pants sizing relative to Dynafit/Crazy Idea? I'm a Large for Dynafit, XL for Crazy Idea. Thanks!
Answer from Nate
Hi TSB, I'm the same sizes in Dynafit and Crazy Idea as you, and I tend to be an XL in Karpos. I hope that helps!
Answer from TSB
Thanks Nate, good to know. I'll try the grey/black XL. (I like that cobalt blue, though!)
