Can these pants realistically be worn during March on Springer Mountain GA? I am looking for hiking pants that can serve multiple purposes during a thru hike on the AT which includes cold snowy weather in the mountains of GA, NC TN.
The Alpha SL will keep you dry for sure. If you're going the for the whole deal, another option is the Alpha LT pant, made with Gore ProShell, which will get you better durability and breathability, as well as full side zips.
