From mid-April corn snow to January Blizzards, Strafe's Cloud Nine pant has the vast range of temperatures covered. Much of the reason the Cloud Nine pants are so versatile is due to the technology that Strafe uses, Polartech NeoShell and Alpha Insulation. The NeoShell keeps the windout on the blustery days and provides maximum breathability, so as you move from the top of the mountain to the base for lunch you're not soaked in sweat. The Alpha insulation obviously provides warmth but it does so without inhibiting breathability. By staying dry all day on the hill you'll be good to head straight from the hill to Apres at Ajax Tavern.
The Strafe Cloud Nine pants are a slimmer looking insulated pant much of this is due to the Polartech Alpha insulation. If you want warmth without all the bulk in a slimming pant we reccommend the Strafe Cloud Nine.
Ultralight 3L Polartec NeoShell. More emphasis on breathability than waterproofing while the Alpha insulation keeps you warm on the stormy days without sacrificing breathability.
For the cold and blustery days that Cloud Nine most definitely has Strafe made the Highlands pant. With Polartec's Alpha insulation and NeoShell you'll stay warm and dry even as the temperature fluctuates at altitude.
Polartec Alpha is a more breathable insulator. The women's Cloud Nine pant is lined with 80g of Alpha insulation.
Two front hand pockets that are low enough that they don't restrict hip movement if you have an iPhone 6+ in there. Also have a good thigh pocket on the left leg.
A mesh lined zippered inner leg vent provides ample ventilation for when the blood gets pumpin.
Extra fleece on the seat and knees keeps you toast on the chairlift or during deck apres at the Cloud Nine.
