The Karpos San Martino Pant has everything a casual backcountry skier could want from a pant: elastic waistband, belt loops, gussets in the cuffs of the legs, two whole pant legs, and plenty of pockets! The Karpos San Martino Pant is made from two types of K-Stretch fabric, with a brushed fleece pattern on the top of the legs for warmth and a lighter and stretchier composition on the back of the legs for increased mobility and breathability. With a DWR finish to help repel water and dirt from the surface of the garment, this pant is made to stand up to many days of abuse. Since busted zippered ruin clothes awfully quick, Karpos incorporated reliable YKK Vislon zippers on its four zippered pockets. They're located on the back, two on the waist, and a lower knee pocket on the left leg. Karpos took careful consideration of boot dimensions into account for the pant legs too. As a result, the pant features an internal gaiter with elastic cuffs and a zippered gusset in the legs. If you're looking for some warm, mobile pants on a radical snow day, then step into the Karpos San Martino Pant!

Questions & Reviews

Carlos M (used product regularly)
These are excellent all-around touring pants. For me, they are warm enough without a baselayer down to around 15-20 degrees as long as I'm generally moving. The fabric is soft and fleecy on the inside, very comfortable against the skin. They are not a super tight fit, I would call them relaxed but generally form-fitting. They are stretchy and feel a lot like sweatpants when wearing casually.

The standout feature of these pants is the breathability-to-warmth ratio. The fabric is excellent. They are quite warm and comfortable without a baselayer, but rarely feel too hot. I have used them in 35-40 degree, sunny weather, and even without vents they were totally fine. A little warm, but not uncomfortable, and I do not get too sweaty. So far the waterproofing has been more than sufficient even on powder days with snow falling.

The cuffs are big enough to fit over a beef boot (Tecnica Zero G Tour Pro) when unzipped. It is a tight fit, but it works. They would be perfect with something like a Scarpa F1 or smaller, but can accommodate big boots.

Question from Brian
Hello. Will the San Martino pant cuff and gaiter fit well over Dynafit Radical Pro boots?
Answer from Emmett I
Hi Brian,

With the cuff unzipped, the gaiter and cuff of the San Martinos fit quite well over the Radical Pros.

Awesome pant for general ski touring. I have used these on probably 60-70 tours and they still look new. They don't have any venting, so probably not the best spring pant, but breathe quite well that I don't miss vents on most days. Water proof enough that they were fine on actively snowing days. I wouldn't want to sit on ski lift with them on a wet snow day, but that is not their intended use anyway. I would describe fit as the mid-point between SkiMo skin tight and regular ski pant baggy. Fit slim enough so you won't get made fun of with the dawn patrol skimo crowd, but not so skin tight as to turn heads in the occasional lift line.
Reply from Joel Z
Crap, forgot to include my personal dimensions and size, which is what I personally want to know in a clothing review. I am 6"4" with a 33-34 inch waist, 34 inch inseam for most jeans. I wear the size 50 in this pant, which fits great. I do use a stretchy belt though so maybe a little loose in the waist, but probably not enough to size down. They are not the longest pant, but are plenty long with ski boots on.
