Like their more rugged sister the L5 FUTURELIGHT™ Trousers, the L5 Light FUTURELIGHT™ Trousers defy expectations in the mountains with the highest level of durable, breathable-waterproof protection. They just do so using a featherlight denier. This three-layer shell is more pliable and tactile, and together with the 3D ergonomic design it’s ideal for more dynamic climbs on steeper terrain. Reinforced Kevlar® kickpatches stand up against brushes with rock and other pointy mountain tools. Calf-length zips and boot-integrated hems ensure a good fit with a range of different sized mountaineering boots. And if you like carrying essential gear close to hand, the roomy thigh pocket with integrated mesh pocket will come in handy. They also come with their own stuffsack for easy storage in your backpack or on your harness. Summit Series™ layers all work together for optimum performance in terms of breathability, insulation, weather resistance and moisture management.
