Cirque Softshell Pants

If 'vertical' is a word that appears in your everyday vocabulary, then the Outdoor Research Women's Cirque Softshell Pants want to catch some altitude with you. Made for days in the mountains when waterproof hard-shell pants would be too stuffy but regular hiking pants wouldn't provide enough protection, the Cirque pants are crafted with a water-resistant, double-weave stretch fabric that shields you from mist and doesn't mind the occasional spring skiing day. The trim fit lies comfortably under a harness during summer alpine missions, and a durable scuff guard adds a layer of defense against crampon points and ski edges. Multiple pockets accommodate your essentials while you move up in the world.

Do these pants have boot gaiters?

They don't have an internal gaiter, like some ski pants have. However, the cuffs do have grommets where you can attach a cord and create makeshift gaiters.

Kristin, if you would like a similar pant with an internal gaiter, look at the Trailbreaker. Otherwise, great solution, Jennifer!

Are these windproof? Will they fit me with my cyclist booty/thighs? Thanks!


Are these fleece lined or lined at all? ...

Are these fleece lined or lined at all? Just wondering what the interior fabric is.

Hey, The inside of the waistband is microfiber but other than that these are not lined so that they can breathe more effectively. Hope that helps.

They aren't like some pants where the inside feels exactly like the outside. There's some kind of fuzzy twill on the inside for warmth, but it isn't really fleece or very thick. It appears to still breath well.
