  Size Chart

As Stan Lee could attest, Excelsior is Latin for "ever upward." So with that in mind, we think La Sportiva's Excelsior Pant is aptly named! As an ultra-breathable midweight softshell pant made with comfort in mind, it's designed to enable ski tourers to forever ascend. And if you're really getting the heart rate up, side zippered vents with mesh gussets allow you to dump heat quickly. Articulated knees, gusseted crotch, and the use of 4-way stretch material ensure that this pant won't get in the way as you race to the top. For a touch of eco-friendly production, La Sportiva utilizes a PFC-Free DWR coating and Bluesign certified fabrics. A reinforced bottom hem with an internal gusset and adjustable snow gaiter keeps snow out of your boots. Two zippered hand pockets, one zippered leg pocket, and one zippered back pocket give you plenty of options for storing small items. Similarly, belt and suspender loops allow you to dial in a perfect fit if for some reason the adjustable waistband construction just isn't enough to keep your pants up! So at the bottom of every run, feel free to shout "Excelsior" as you begin your umpteenth uptrack ascent knowing that the La Sportiva Excelsior Pant won't be holding you back.

Questions & Reviews

Zak M (used product regularly)
A new season means a new pair of soft shell pants for the backcountry and so far I've been pretty pumped on the La Sportiva Excelsior pant. With only 7 days total in them this season, I am currently liking the adjustable waist belt, side zips and general layout of the pant. I find that with a lot of other general touring softshell pants that advertise a " relaxed fit" they are still just too snug for my meaty uphill skiing thighs but the Excelsior pant does have a pleasant taper that isn't too tight.

I tend to run quite warm, and have been pleased with the thickness of the softshell material. Overall even with the pant being definitely on the slightly lighter side of the spectrum I think without a doubt they could hold up to much colder conditions with the right layers underneath.

My only gripes so far with the pant is the positioning of the thigh pocket. Primarily its just in a weird spot if you wanted to store your beacon in it and it just sits a bit lower for my personal preference.

Overall I am stoked to put a number of more days out in these this season.

What size did you purchase and what is your waist size?
Just wondering if this brand is true to size according to the charts.
