Waterproof, windproof and extremely robust: the Sharp End Pants by Black Diamond live for mountaineering, skiing and ski touring. For the upper material made from Gore-Tex Pro 3L with a 80D nylon fabric, even sharp edges in snow and ice and sharp stones are no problem. The additional DWR treatment simply repels water and dirt. The continuous zip on the side allows the touring pants to be comfortably put on and taken off, without having to take off shoes or backpack. On ski tour it can as such be transported in the backpack during the ascent and be put on only for the descent through the deep snow. The knee regions are designed for sporty activities and the seat is already anatomically contoured. This allows for optimal freedom of movement and maximum performance. High gaiters and reinforced leg cuffs made from Keprotec make the Sharp End Pants both snow fit and crampon-compatible. Additional safety during ski mountaineering and Freeriding is also ensured with the integrated Recco reflector. With the Recco reflector, rescuers can locate the Alpinist after a snow burial, and thus speed up the rescue operation.
