Confident in technical alpine terrain.
When you're moving through technical and exposed alpine terrain, there can be no question regarding the performance of your outerwear. Suit up in the Peak Performance Men's BL 3L Pant and know that your lower half is all taken care of. Two Gore-Tex 3-layer fabrics provide stretch, durability, low bulk, and wind and waterproof protection that stands up to the toughest conditions and seasons of use.
- Made with two different 3-layer Gore-Tex fabrics, one for stretch and durability, the other for reduced bulk and weight, both provide complete windproof, waterproof, breathable protection
- Fully taped seams keep wet conditions out
- Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch provide complete freedom of movement
- Side zips and extra-long venting zips dump excess heat during periods of high exertion
- Detachable suspenders and an adjustable waist system provide a snug fit
- Superfabric-reinforced insteps protect against sharp edges and ski boots
- Two zippered hand pockets and a bellowed thigh pocket hold essentials
- Center back loop keeps a harness in place

Good from far, but far from good.....
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
Fit and look of these pants was fantastic, but that is where it ended. They seemed well thought out, but every time you bend over the waist button pops open. 5'11", 170 lbs. so I believe the Large fit the best, but I had ordered both on BC's suggestion, but since I didn't keep them I am not sure. Anyway, the cuffs seemed great, as well, but they also would spilt open (not rip) when in use. I ended up going with the Mammut Nordwand pant and have not field tested, but can tell you fit is even better and quality higher and the features actually seem to work.

I bought these last year for a 2 week snowboarding trip to Alaska. I'm 5'7" and 175lbs and an athletic build, and medium ski pants are always too tight in the thigh, so I'm forced to get a large, which typically ends up being too long and baggier than I'd like. These were no different, but there's not much I can do about it.
Anyway, the pants are amazing. I've worn Arcteryx gear for the past 6 years, and these pants are just as good in terms of performance and construction. There is a big difference in exectution between PP and Arcteryx though . . . Arcteryx tends to focus on minimalist, lightweight designs, while PP typically seems to have more features. More pockets, fit adjusters, cinches, etc. My only complaint is that the suspenders aren't easy to remove if you have to go to the bathroom. I recently bought my wife the Heli Alpine Loft pants and her suspenders have easy velcro pull tabs. I'd prefer this design, but it's not that big of a deal. I tried on every pair of Gore-Tex pants that BC.com had last year in my size, and these were hands down the best, and they proved themselves once I got to the mountains with them.
