For ever-traveling skiers.
Japan, Iceland, Austria, Chile—who knows where you'll find powder this year? Thankfully, the Strafe Outerwear Men's Nomad Pant is ready to chase storms with you, and it won't complain the slightest bit about sleeping in your truck or catching brutal redeye flights to snowy destinations. The Nomad's 3-layer eVent shell provides extremely high levels of waterproofing that still remain breathable while hiking for tasty backcountry lines, and fully taped seams and Vislon zippers make sure you don't feel a drop of water on resort powder days.
Despite its semi-tailored fit, the Nomad allows plenty of room for layering on frigid days. The Nomad also features generous mesh-lined thigh vents for an abundance of airflow—after all, you don't want to feel like your legs are in a tropical jungle in the middle of winter. Internal gaiters and the stretchy, zip-off bib seal out snow in the white room, while Cordura kick panels protect the cuffs from ski edges when you're laying it over on hardpack or tiptoeing ridgelines in crampons.

I bought these pants this fall and was generally impressed with the style, fit, and design. It is especially nice to have a bib pant with a zipper so you can take off the bib component when it is not needed. However, from the onset I had doubts about the durability of this product which seemed to have cheap Chineese construction. After 20-30 days of skiing the crotch has blown out and the boot cuffs are falling apart. For a similar price point other brands offer much better durability
