Trailbreaker II Softshell Pant

The Outdoor Research Trailbreaker II Softshell Pant is designed for high-output winter travel. Whether you're on the skin track or boot packing to the summit, the softshell construction keeps you mobile, comfortable, and protected from the elements. In fact, the lower legs are constructed with a three-layer Pertex Shield membrane to provide you with waterproof protection when you're breaking trail. The upper part of the pant is water-resistant to still provide weather protection while remaining breathable to keep you comfortable on the ascent. Zippered thigh vents aid in keeping you cool while moisture-wicking ActiveTemp at the waist enhances comfort. Overall, the material is abrasion-resistant to withstand the rigors of mountain travel while reinforced scuff guards at the hem offer added protection from your crampons and ski edges to keep the pant in top shape throughout many seasons.

Great pant for touring

I've used it several times
True to size

Bought these as a gift and she really likes them. They're purpose was for winter hiking and touring and they work great for both. They run true to size and are very comfortable. She really likes the vents on both sides that run from knee to upper thigh. She just wished there was a hook on the bottom of the pants to hook to her hiking boots, but definitely not a deal breaker. She tried on a lot of pants and these were her favorite.

Cuffs too wide for climbing

I returned this product before using it

Pants fit nicely, but the cuffs are too wide to use for ice climbing -- crampons will catch and rip the material, so these are being returned. Would be nice for touring, though the material is quite heavy.

Beacon pocket not useful

Gift. Recipient's review: Perfect pants for touring/hiking/snowshoeing. The fit is nice, they have plenty of room to move and perform your activities without being too baggy. However since they are a little fitted the beacon pocket seems useless. There is no way anything would comfortably fit in that pocket on the front thigh while hiking around, it is too tight. All the other features are perfect though. The bottoms have gators and the outer pant cinches down on top of that. I’m 5’4” 120lbs and a small fits nicely.
