Designed for high output at high elevations, the Mountain Hardwear Synchro Pant combines excellent fabrics and construction to keep you warm and dry.

Mountain Hardwear applies its Conduit waterproof breathable membrane to the Men's Synchro Pant, a hardworking softshell, for dryness on the inside and out. The smooth nylon surface repels wind, rain, sticks, and stones, while the brushed polyester interior provides moisture management and warmth. Wear these durable pants when you backcountry ski or alpine climb. The Synchro's fit allows for layering without being baggy, and a two-way fly makes answering nature's call when you're in a harness easier. Exterior seams are taped for water-resistance, and pockets have water-resistant zippers.

My waist is a 32/33, should I go for the large version or would it be too much?

Best Answer Responded on

Tor. I would go for a medium if I were you. I think you will find the Large... to large. Hope this helps!

Are these 2 or 3ply?

Are these 2 or 3ply?

Responded on

Luka. These pants are made utilizing Conduit Softshell material. If you counted all the layers of the fabric it would be considered a 3-Ply. But, softshell fabric is typically not measured that way. The outershell would be the woven softshell material... the middle layer would be the Conduit laminate... and the inner layer would be a thin fleece. Hope this helps!

Great skiing pants

I have used the Synchro pants for two years now, telemarking in a range of conditions and environments. From skinning and powder skiing in the Alps to slushy spring skiing by Norwegian fjords. The Synchros are really great pants and almost perfect for any condition and most days. They keep water and wind out better than I expected from a softshell. They are quite warm so most winter days skiing, I use only a thin base layer. I really like the possibility to ventilate while hiking and the Synchros' 3/4 zips allow that easily.

The fit is good when I have a belt to keep them up, slim but wide enough to allow knee pads without any problem.

I really love them and they are my first choice most days doing winter activities. But, there are some things that could be improved. Firstly as I use the Synchros mainly for skiing I really would like to have internal gaiters instead of a silly draw chord when hiking in deep snow; secondly the outer material chafe a bit from wear of backpacks and my jackets' internal draw chords; thirdly the embroidered Mountain Hardwear logo on the leg is not taped on the inside and makes them not water proof on that patch, which can be quite annoying on days sitting in the lift when it is drizzling rain.

Awesome BC ski pant

I've got about 100 days on a pair and have taken them into a variety of conditions from 55 degree really hot days to -20F. Go linerless on a really hot day and a simple wool liner for anything from 35 to 0F and you'll be fine, wind and snow or none. 3/4 length zip (all the way to the bottom) is great and they are such incredibly light pants. Fit's not good for shorter wider people or if your thighs are like tree trunks.

The only wear in these pants after 100 days of use is as follows: the three layers at the cuffs (brushed lining, conduit, and exterior shell) are separating and the lining has worn holes from being sandwiched and rubbed between my boot lace hooks and snowboard bindings. Oh yeah, and a zipper handle on the vent zipper popped off. After 100 days of resort and backcountry boarding, that's pretty awesome I'd say. These things are still waterproof and windproof as they are when I bought them new, though quicker to get damp since I haven't refreshed the DWR in a while.

Write your question here...Which pant is the most waterproof/breathable?

Marine approved.

Durable, warm, water proof, and really comfortable. Great zippers on side to let you cool down when the sun peers through the clouds. Only down fall is pockets hard to reach into. For outdoor activities though, couldn't ask for better.

Bib Version

The synchro fabric is perfect for backcountry skiing. It breathes well enough (there are huge vents if necessary) and is as waterproof as anything I've used. Water beads off - end of story. Durability seems pretty good and you can't deny that the exterior taping looks sharp. I'm 5'8, 140 lbs, usually a 30-31" waist. I got the small and it's slim but not skin-tight, just the fit I was looking for. All things considered I highly recommend these pants (bibs) and can't think of a single complaint. Just remember to zip up the vents at the top - waterproof/breathable fabric doesn't mean much when snow is pouring in the side of the pants.

I'm a tele skier that skis both lift service and backcountry. I am not fat, have big thighs. I have a 34/35 waist and a 30 inch inseam. I've been trying on a lot of ski pants trying to replace my 15 yr old solstis bibs.What model and size do you suggest?Eric

Responded on

Depends if you want GoreTex pants, Conduit, or some thing else from another brand. If you are looking for something from Mountain Hardwear in Conduit I would consider the Stance Pant. It's an award winning pant for a great price. If you are looking for something from Hardwear in GoreTex I would consider the Beryllium Bib Pant. Burly Proshell Gore that will last you another 15 years. If you are looking for extremely weather-proof softshell pants that will last you a while as well... look no further than this page. We also make Synchro Bibs if you want a little more protection. Hope this info helps!ps. More than likely you are a large...

Disappointing fit

The sizing is not very generous. I'm a 34 waist and the mediums were way too small. A friend - typically size small - fit into these mediums perfectly.

To echo another reviewer, you'd think they'd be loose in the thigh, hip, but (for mobility) and a snug in the waist to keep 'em up.

Bummer for fat, old me.

Oddball fit

I like the pants except for two aspects. First, the fit is oddly tight in the thigh, hip, and crotch area. I say odd because the waist fits fine -- actually a teeny bit loose.

The other aspect I dislike is the absence of ankle gaiters -- they would really make for a more versatile set of pants if they were included.

Great Mountaineering Pant

Got these to replace my seven year old Marmot ATV pants which I absolutely loved but are no longer made. Great quality, the full length zips are a huge plus. The only thing that I can see being a problem are the horizontal orientation of the two front pockets while wearing a harness, otherwise a great pant.

I don't get the two -way fly? I thought the zipper went all the way around the butt so you could unzip to take a weisser without loosing the waist?

Responded on

It's so that you can unzip from the bottom. When you're wearing a harness, you can't get to the top zipper of the fly, this makes it so you can still piss without it being a huge pain in the ass.

Do these have gaiters or reinforced inner boot areas?

Responded on

The Synchro Pants have a laminated edge guard on the inside of each leg made out of 330D nylon. They do not have a built in gaiter. Hope this helps...

All Time Favorite BC ski pant

I love the Syncros for backcountry skiing. They can be unzipped for venting, worn alone, worn under shell pants, or worn around town after a great day of turns. A classic Mountain Hardwear piece!

Synchro Pants

Ski a lot and wear knee braces under pants. Also Im real picky about ski clothes, usually wear arcteryx stuff, but dont like the pants I bought in past. These Synchro pants are super, they fit as well as promised and are easy access and easy to adjust. I really like the side zippers.

I'll probably buy more!

Mountain Hardwear Synchro Pant - Men's

Good pants, price was tolerable. Wore them on summit climb to ~20k feet at about 12 degrees F. Combined with fleece long underwear, it was plenty warm -- waterproof was good even on the slushy way down the next day. No complaints.
