Ski or climb the Sawtooths.
The Men's Sawtooth Pant is Rab's lightest and most breathable softshell pant for spring ski touring and summer alpine climbing. Its Matrix DWS fabric has the stretch you need for dynamic movement, and the DWR finish protects you from the sun's UV rays as well as wet weather. Articulated knees enhance mobility so you can ascend and descent with a freedom of movement.
The Sawtooth also features a snappy waistband with a soft tricot lining that wicks moisture and dries quickly. Reinforced kick patches protect the Sawtooth's cuffs from ski edges and crampons, and the hem drawcord ensures a secure fit. Rab added zippered pockets

Rab as a whole is excellent. I will always go to this brand for outdoor clothes.
These pants are an excellent, lightweight softshell. Great for hiking, alpine climbing or skimo. FOur pockets give you room for storage. THe zippers let you keep the stuff secure and the pockets are flat, so no 90's cargo pants look.
I like the belt loops. Critical as they'll stretch a bit and get loose at the waist after a you put them on.
My two complaints:
1. just a hair short for a tall guy. No tall option. That's a bummer.
2. The leg openings are a little tight for most ski boots.
Pretty dope pants

Lightweight pants, I use them for ice climbing and they are insufficient but they get the job done. would be perfect for late season though
