The only pant for all of your alpine adventures.

With the Patagonia Women's Alpine Guide Softshell Pant, you'll be ready for a morning of ski touring or an afternoon of navigating your way through technical ice sequences on a frozen waterfall. The highly breathable, wind-resistant Polartec Power Shield stretch woven fabric allows a full, unrestricted range of motion to accommodate even the most acrobatic maneuvers on the vertical or through fresh pow fields.

  • Polartec reinforcements add durability for multi-season, active use
  • If nature decides it isn't done snowing, a DWR coating helps bead and slough moisture to prevent your insulating layers from getting wet
  • Brushed interior allows for next-to-skin comfort during spring skiing when you don't need or want too many layers
  • Articulated knees give you optimal mobility and fit
  • Boot-compatible lower leg with external scuff guard withstands the abuse of alpine life
  • Gusseted, zippered cuffs include tie-down loops to seal out snow from below
  • Ample pockets hold camera, extra hand-warmers, lip balm, and other small essentials

Perfect for late winter in White Mts

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 136 lbs
    Size Purchased: 6

I was concerned about the fit after reading the reviews about the pants running small. I wear Medium in various brands/size 6 in Prana pants and ordered both the 6 and 8. I ended up keeping the size 6 as the fit was perfect with some room for wool underwear. The pants performed great -- nice and stretchy, well constructed, and didn't let the wind through. I'm looking forward to many more adventures.

Sized Small!

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I normally wear a size 4-6 , but the size 6 I ordered was extremely too small! However, I am going to order the size up due to my friend's great review. He wore his pair the entire weekend snow shoeing.

Great pants.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large

These are my go-to expedition pants. They are a great weight to keep the cold out. They work well with any base layer. My only caveat is that they are a little baggy in the hips. Overall they are durable, and I will keep them until I wear them out.

Look good, have fun, be safe.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I picked up these pants to phase out my Stoic Guide Softshell Pants after thoroughly thrashing them last season. The fit is great - loose where you want em, and snug where you don't. Stretchy fabric means when you have to take a big step up, or contort in strange directions to once again re-enable your stupid walk/ski mode on your boots for the nth time, nothing binds or stops you.

I've had good luck with the belt closure - the waist is the only thing that seems to run a bit large in these pants - and I love how low-profile the waistband in general is. Very comfortable to wear under a harness or pack.

I've taken these babies out skiing, walking, and climbing and keep rubbing it in my friends faces how much cooler my pants are than theirs.

Look good, have fun, be safe.

GREAT pants

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pants are super awesome. They are comfortable, flexible, and they look great on. The only thing that is not perfect is the waistband which opens up/slides down in the back when I bend over, BUT take that with a grain of salt because [I have only ever found one brand in life that doesn't do that to me] I have an apparently strange/hard-to-make-pants-for shape. I got these because I know a bunch of guys with the male version and they all love them and praise them.
