High Alpine go-to armor

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This pant was a chosen piece of alpine armor on climbs in the Alaska Range for the last 3 years. My Partner and I wore this pant when climbing on an alpine big wall for a singe 99hr push on Mt. Bradley in 2009. I found it to be a pant that I like to have on the high alpine trips, ones were calculated when choosing gear.



We found when using this alpine shell the reinforced ankle scuff and grommets to keep the boots and socks drier and thus sleeping better at the bivi. The side zippers allow venting and a full-pull while in a harness and crampons essential for quick transitions in applying this full in conditions.



The Paladin Pant is perfect for the big trips, but also recommend them on ascents of Mount Rainier in cold or winter-like conditions. I take Paladin Pant in the pack it the forecast is not favorable in early season Cascades.
