You know better than anyone that a perfect day on the snow doesn't always mean just-freezing temperatures and bluebird skies--single-digit temps and overcast skies arejust part of winter in the mountains. Fortunately, the Outdoor Research Blackpowder II Pant also knows this. Outdoor Research edited this athlete-favorite to have a more streamlined fit, while still maintaining all the key elements of the pant for a functional, full-coverage design. Made with a wind and waterproof membrane that's fully breathable and tough as nails, you'll have full protection whether the wind starts to gust or the powder is up to your waist. If you decide there are good turns worth hiking for out of bounds, articulated knees let you take unrestricted strides, and the designated avalanche beacon pocket is a perfect reminder not to leave the gate without your avalanche safety gear.
