The term “vanguard” refers to a position at the forefront of development. La Sportiva is positioning the Vanguard pant to serve those at the forefront of ski mountaineering. The focus of the pant design was on comfort and fit, and Sportiva nailed this with a combination of brushed tricot lining and stretch-woven soft shell fabric. The Vanguard pants are designed to hug your legs and do what they do. They are locked into place with an adjustable waist and zippered cuff that has silicon tape to stick to your ski boots. Two front hand pockets and one rear security pocket are great for a simple day of training or touring. Move to the front lines with the La Sportiva Vanguard Pant.
