If you're one of those people who think there's no such thing as waterproof and breathable, it's time to reconsider. The Outdoor Research Men's Skyward II Pant is proof that you can have your cake and eat it too, and it even tastes good. When it's your turn to set the skinner and your body temperature is spiking, a combination of the AscentShell 3L fabric and the large outer thigh vents let all that heat escape so you can plug on without having to spend the rest of the tour in your sweaty baselayers. The fabric also works to keep wind and moisture from the outside from permeating, while the gaiters seal out any chance of snow getting where it doesn't belong. The cherry on top (of your cake) are the thoughtful details Outdoor Research incorporated into the Skyward II. Stretchy face fabric and well-articulated knees support full range of motion whether you're booting up a couloir or laying down some GS-worthy turns, and a specially designated avalanche beacon pocket provides easy beacon access. In case your crampons or ski edges decide to go rogue, 420D scuff guards protect your pants from tears so you can spend less time sewing and more time on the snow.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
