Venture beyond marked boundaries.
Developed for adventurous ski tours and big-mountain pursuits, the Black Crows Men's Venus Gore-Tex 3-L Pant maximizes mobility when you're skinning uphill for hours at a time and dropping into steep, powder-filled gullies on the way down. Gore-Tex 3-layer construction offers burly protection from deep snow and raging storms, while withstanding hardcore abuse in the backcountry. The ergonomic design promotes full range of motion when you're skinning up ridges and charging steep couloirs.
Functional pockets store all your backcountry essentials, with large openings facilitating quick grabbing of items on the move. Outer-thigh vents release warmth on uphill slogs, so you're not overheating or sweating profusely on the way up. Dual loops secure ice axes and screws when you're performing a technical ascent with mixed climbing. Bottom hems feature zippered openings for easy fitment over your boots, complete with two snaps for fine-tuning the fit and feel.

These are the bees knees! The level of detail and craftsmanship is amazing! Starting from the scuff cuffs , powder cuffs all the way to the biner in the pocket and the sealed seams it is all great quality! The material is very rugged and seem like it will last for a while. Took them for a spin skinning and bunch of inbounds days. I wouldn't consider them light by any means to be touring in them, but for a short day stints out and about they are great! They feel good and looking sharp!
I Just had to update my review and bump the stars to 5! Initially I thought I had a problem with wind getting through, but after today my opinion has changed drastically. In my first experiences it was simply the cold getting to me as my base layer wasn't enough to protect from the wind temps ...
Today I skinned up in -20F and probably 45mph+ winds and -505F-ish windchill.
Bomb proof!!! Would recommend!
Love these pants!

I got these pants to replace some Arc'teryx Sabre pants I bought that got tears in them after only 3 days of wear.
These are fantastic! Super well made, great fit (I'm a 33 waist/32 inseam and got a medium) good pockets and though material on the bottom, resisting any cuts from skis. I highly recommend! Love the color too.
