Style from the Cryptic Line for show and Gore-Tex Performance fabric for go.
Style and performance always seemed locked in battle when it came to outerwear, but that was before The North Face Men's Spineology Pant came crashing onto the scene. Like a particularly deep pillow on an already blower day, this technical pant represents a sweet spot—it balances its laid-back aesthetic with highly technical Gore-Tex Performance waterproof breathable fabric and a host of top-of-the-line comfort features. This pant belongs to The North Face's Cryptic line, so when you're wearing it, you belong on something steep and scary, inside the resort or out.
- Gore-Tex Performance Shell waterproof breathable fabric keeps you dry when the weather is wet, and the breathable membrane allows sweaty, chilling moisture to move outward and away from your skin
- Fully taped seams block water and melting snow from sneaking in through the fabric seams
- Relaxed fit leaves room for layering underneath, but the laid-back cut won't leave you tripping over yourself when you need to do some side stepping or boot packing
- Chimney Venting draws in cool air through the Stretch-Vent gaiters and dumps excess heat through the inseam vents for ultimate temperature control
- Ankle-height side zippers give you easy access to your buckles and boots
- Adjustable hook-and-loop tabs make it quick and easy to dial in fit at the waist
- Clip-Integration pant-to-jacket tabs allow you to attach your jacket to your pants to prevent snow-filled pants (with a compatible jackets from The North Face)
- RECCO Avalanche Rescue System may give you a better chance at being recovered inbounds, and the Know Boundaries Snow Safety label reminds you of the ever-present risk

Curious about the fit/weight of these...
Curious about the fit/weight of these compared to the Freedom. "Park style" doesn't mean a lot to me... is there a face fabric on the inside of any sort, or is this just a shell pant?
Will these pants require wearing a baselayer...
Will these pants require wearing a baselayer for an average day out on the slopes, was worried they may be a little thin compared to the freedom pant, thanks.
