Why We Built The Wolverine Cirque 3/4 Insulated Pant

The Wolverine Cirque 3/4 Insulated Pants are insulated to add warmth on frigid tours and early morning dawn patrols.When the track gets steep or the temperature rises with the sun, top-to-bottom zippers at each side let you remove the knickers without taking off your boots or skis. The knickers have a water-resistant treatment to shed any snowfall when you're in the middle of this transition or when things get powdery.

  • Backcountry Exclusive
  • Insulated knickers part of Backcountry’s ski touring collection
  • Breathable, stretchy insulation ideal for highly aerobic skiing
  • Abrasion-resistant shell assures long-lasting durability
  • Water-resistant treatment prevents moisture from soaking baselayers
  • Top-to-bottom side zippers make on-and-off easy
  • Zipper pulls are glove-friendly for fumble-free transitions
  • Anti-odor Polygiene treatment keeps fabric fresher, longer
  • Wide elastic waistband delivers a secure, mobile fit

I usually just wear a merino base layer under my shell pants, as my legs rarely get cold but frequently get hot and sweaty; but on really cold days I wear these. They're really warm and comfortable, no restriction of movement, they fit great under normal-cut ski pants, and are the perfect length were they don't interfere with your boots at all. Selling point to me was the ability to take them on and off without removing my pants and boots. When I walk to the resort I'll put them on after I arrive, just drop your ski pants and zip them on, no overheating required. Also when the afternoon sun comes out, just drop your ski pants and unzip them, quick and easy. These pants only disconnect at the top zipper, meaning you put them on top>bottom and take them off bottom>top. Sliding the top zipper down while wearing them is just a ventilation method from what I've experienced. They breathe extremely well; way better than I thought they would, meaning you don't feel the need to take them off as much as you'd think. Riding a lot of trees I did get warm but using leg-vents these pants resisted that clammy feeling really well. Overall I love these pants and they were a great addition to a bottom layering system. This review is coming from east coast and west coast riding.

I run cold while telemarking (impossible, you say?!) so I needed a midlayer between my thermal weight long underwear and my bibs and this fit the bill perfectly. Slides over my baselayer, 3/4 length that doesn't interfere with boots, and side zips are nice to put kneepads on. Critiques: add the other hand pocket, there's only one. Also, the zipper fly could be a bit longer. Don't let the critiques hold you back from purchasing, though.

Most of us who backcountry ski don’t have insulated pants. Here’s the solution. Get some knickers. Super nice to wear in the cold, wore them is -10 F weather, and kept my legs warm. I will say though, the ability to zip them on and off is a bit overrated. Most people would wear them under their shells, taking them off, you still have to pull down your pants and such, plus the zippers near the top can dig into you waist a bit.

Most

I have not used these specific ones, but I have Swix 3/4 pants, and I take them off without taking off or dropping my shell pants(low bibs). I open the side zips en the fly front of the shell pants, reach in, unzip the knickers, and pull them up and off. Putting them on would be a whole lot harder. And of course, for high energy ski touring, you would wear some tights or trim Softshell pants, and put these over the top of those, for the descent.

Picked these up a few months ago and have been loving them. I've been using the Nano Air pant by Patagonia for the last few years but the never seemed versatile enough to do everything but these have been great for everything. I've used them skiing, ice climbing, and honestly just wearing around the house. The fit is great and they're crazy comfortable. The fit is spot on, slim but not to slim and fits true to size in the waist. Overall I love these things!!

I wear a 3 layer shell pant for skiing and these are the perfect compliment with those. I love the stretch, lightweight, just the right amount of insulation, and the low profile waistband - no bunching. I just wear a comfortable boxer brief under them and my normal ski socks. They’ve been perfect with that combo skiing from 6-40 degrees. I have vents on my shell pants for when I get warmer. The only gripe I have is that I’m right handed and really miss a pocket on the right side. My waist is 33 and medium seems to fit me fine.

The pants are great on those ice cold days. The fit is slim and the waist true to size. The zippers, while full length do not unzip all the way. They stop at either the top or bottom so if you need to remove the pant, your boots most likely will have to come off. All in all a great pant, just wish the zippers truly did unzip. Thanks to feedback, the pants leg zippers do completely unzip. The bottom zipper must be unzipped to the top zipper and then the zipper mechanism can be undone. Thanks for the feedback. Great insulating layer just got better!!

My pair unzips completely. You have to unzip from the bottom up and they come apart. Notice the zipper mechanism on top and bottom are different

Hey Brian, Im sorry to see you are having some difficulty getting the pants to completely zip off. They were designed to completely zip off if you zip from the bottom to the top. Let me know if this helps with the performance of your purchase!

I purchased these to wear under my goretex shell pants which tended to be too cold when resort skiing. I just received these today and have yet to use them on the mountain. That being said, Amazing comfort. So soft in fact, a base layer underneath these are not necessary for comfort. These do NOT have a drawstring as many complained about the previous version in reviews I have read. Single zipper pocket on left side and zippered fly are nice additions. I’m 6’0 175lbs and everything I own is size Medium. This is no different. I tend to be a 31 or 32 waist and these fit well with only a T-shirt tucked in. I have no concern about the omission of a drawstring. I am excited to use these on the hill. I can wear my shell pants more often without worrying about freezing on cold Northeast days. Thank you backcountry. This is my first backcountry brand purchase and it is top notch.

These capri's are the BOMB. They look awesome, and they fit incredibly. I wear these all the time just for pure comfort sake, even though they're made for mountain use. As a warmth layer, they work incredible. I'm a snowboarder, and they stop right at the top of my boots so I don't have to deal with tucking or stretching over them. They also don't feel bulky under my bibs (regular fit). Moral of the story is these are comfy, warm, and good looking. You'll want to buy these. As for waist size, I'm a 32/32 and the medium is perfect.

These pants are identified as a base layer while the Arc'teryx Axino (very similar design) are listed as a midlayer insulated pant. Are these pants designed to be worn on top of a traditional base layer OR directly on the skin like a traditional base layer?

Hey Ryan, thank you for the question. This is designed to be a mid layer worn over a traditional base layer

>Rating:

One of the reviews suggests that the full side zippers don’t actually completely detach, which makes taking off the pants without removing skis/boots impossible. This runs counter to the product description. Could you provide a definitive description of the side zips on the new 20/21 model?

Hey Ted! These do completely zip off. They were designed to be removable if you zip from the bottom to the top. I hope this helps!

Hi, Are they intended to be worn as a mid layer under bibs?

Hey Andrew, yes! These are intended to be a warm layer under a technical outer layer. some folks have actually worn these while flyfishing!
