Extremely lightweight, windproof and waterproof, the mens Hightail Pants are part of our Alpine Series, designed in partnership with the renowned New Zealand Alpine Team. From the design floor, to some of the world's hardest alpine routes, the Hightail range has been tested, refined and retested by elite climbers who have pushed these items to their extreme limits. The Hightail is perfect for activities such as alpine climbing and adventure racing where there are no compromises on weight, and packability is crucial. A highly effective rainwear piece, the Hightail is fully taped and constructed with 100% Nylon Double Ripstop fabric with a thin Pertex Shield® membrane to create an almost weightless addition to your pack. Note: The lightweight nature of this fabric means it's not suitable for high abrasion use.
