For those of us that sometimes wear spandex and use normal-size skis (often called “skinny”), the fashionable touring apparel is too bulky to get where you’re going. On min-winter foul-weather days, however, the only thing warm enough might be the aforementioned bulky apparel. Not anymore. Introducing Karpos’ magic pants, the Alagna Plus. Unlike the Alagna Lite pant, the Alagna Plus is the ideal warm-up, training, or speed touring pant on cold days. Breathable Thermodrytex PL+ is the majority shareholder in the Alagna Plus, meaning it’s not bulky at all. A windproof layer of durable Cordura can be found along the front half of the pant, down around the cuffs, and up on the butt. Reinforcing only the key areas of the pant allowed the Alagna Plus to be both lightweight and rugged. If you enjoy spandex but also enjoy being warm, the Karpos Alagna Plus will happily cradle your legs.
