For the speedy skinner.
You wouldn't exactly call yourself rando, but you sure do love speedy skinners to the summit, and so does the Mammut Men's Aenergy SO Softshell Pant. This hybrid softshell features a 3-layer construction comprised of lightweight, extremely breathable, and very stretchy fabric. Mammut treated the fabric to resist snow spray, snowflakes, and brisk breezes.
The Aenergy SO also features Cordura reinforcements to protect the pant from sharp ski edges and sharper crampons. Mesh-backed zippers at each side let much-needed ventilation and keep out unwanted snow. The bottom side zippers help you layer the pant's cuffs over ski boots, and the cuffs adjust to stay secure over ski boots.

This pant is exactly what I was looking for for backcountry skiing. Its a combination of water resistant areas for protection and fleece areas for breathability. I have pretty big thighs, glutes and calves compared to average mountain athlete. The cut of the pant is very slim, especially from the knees down. It was difficult to get the bottoms over my ski boots. Also the pants were so tight that my beacon barely fit in the pocket. I wound up returning these, but for a skinny dude, I think these would be great.
Does the graphite version of this pant have a zipper fly? It looks like the images of the other colors do not have a fly...
