Stay dry for the ski down.
You might not be a professional guide, but you might as well be with all the skin tracks you've been putting in for your buddies. The Rab Men's Neo Guide Pant is a 3-layer shell that's waterproof, breathable, and has enough stretch to make a kick turn with ease. Polartec Neoshell keeps you dry both from the inside and the outside with over two times the airflow as traditional waterproof, breathable fabrics. Lighter weight fabrics on the front upper and back yoke reduce bulk, weight, and increases the ease of movement for the skin up. And for those two-thousand-foot couloir boot packs, 3/4-length zips with YKK Aquaguard zippers let you ditch excess heat fast for when you're really working up a sweat.

- Q & A
Rab Neoshell Guide Pants Are Perfect
Athletic fit in the Large on my 6'2", 195 lb. frame. Excellent spring skiing pant, but can be layered for much cooler days.
Maya looks great. Make a note, the waist is a stretch waist, I'm a 35" max waist, the waist is perfect without the suspenders for me.
But, a 36" waist just won't make it in the Large.
Polartec NeoShell is a perfect alpine material in my experience....this is my second piece.
Rab & Polartec NeoShell
Polartec NeoShell is the first fabric to combine the superior breathability, ventilation and stretch of a softshell with the waterproof protection of a hardshell.
NeoShell uses a unique membrane which blocks 99.9% of the wind whilst offering levels of stretch you would expect to find on a high performance softshell product.
The Neo Guide Jacket & Pant
Climbing towering ice pillars or skiing waist deep powder is fun, being soaked afterwards is not. The Neo Guide Jacket & Pant is the ultimate in breathable, waterproof protection and is the number one choice for Rab USA athlete Eli Helmuth.
Follow along as Eli skis a late season couloir in the Colorado backcountry and tells us why the Neo Guide system is going to be the official uniform for his guide service.
