An alpinist's dream pant.

You need to be up before dawn if you're going to make the summit, so slip into the Marmot Men's First Light Pant to fend off the lingering morning chill before you set off. Designed for winter mountaineers and alpinists, the First Light has a regular fit for easy layering, Thermal R Eco recycled insulation for warmth, and a waterproof and breathable two layer MemBrain laminate to keep you dry when you're postholing your way through thigh-deep snow.

A gusseted crotch and articulated legs make ridge traverses, crevasse crossings, and summit pushes extra-comfortable, while the removable and adjustable suspenders keep your pants where they belong, so you can worry about more important things like what the other members of your rope team are up to. Marmot also tossed in Cordura scuff guards to prevent your crampons from tearing your pants to shreds, and full-length side zips and a cuff adjustment system to help you stay cool, comfortable, and snow-free during your climb.
