You have a season pass at Aspen Snowmass and you hop on the Exhibition Chair at Highlands first thing in the morning so you have time to hike the bowl and beyond. First chair in January can be pretty cold so you have Polartech Alpha 80g Insulation that is plenty warm when paired with a good base layer. By the time you make it to the top you have an hour hike to go, usually when you are hiking a shell is preferred but the Alpha insulation provides ample warmth and unmatched breathability.
Staying warm on the first chair and maintaining comfort all day is what Strafe's Highlands pant is capable of. If you want to go further and do so more comfortably add it to the cart.
The Highlands pant has a less bulky fit and look than most insulated pants. It's a standard cut that doesn't look too relaxed or baggy. Match it up with the Highlands Jacket and you'll be killing it.
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 Highlands 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 Highlands 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.
A mesh lined zippered inner leg vent provides ample ventilation for when the blood gets pumpin.
Extra tall Cordura inner ankle crampon and ski edge guards. The ballistic material comes up higher on the pant to prevent damage from hiking or high edge angle turns.
