The quality and attention to detail that Karpos presents is almost unmatched, which is why the versatile Mountain pant is one of the mainstays of their lineup. Sporting a top-to-bottom DWR finish, the Mountain pant will repel water, dirt, and other contaminants which means your pants stay clean and breathable. The main fabric used is K-Shell, a lightly insulated and breathable windproof layer that is durable and offers a bit of stretch. K-Dry, an unbelievably waterproof fabric, is strategically placed in the waistband, seat, and lower leg to offer extra durability and water resistance without weighing the pant down. The integrated gaiter features zipper access and is paired to the pant via a small section of mesh for enhanced breathability. With the durability of a heavier pant and the breathability of a lighter pant, the Karpos Mountain Women’s pant is the go-to for technical skiers and mountaineers that like to push the limits.
Update 2017/18: The back of the waist is now straight (no high flap). The rest of the pant remains the same.
