The Mountain Equipment G2 Mountain Pant is a highly protective windstopper softshell pant idealy suited for climbing and mountaineering. Constructed with Gore-Tex Windstopper Softshell they are completely windproof and highly weather resistant, making them able to withstand tough weather before a hardshell is required. The softshell is also stretchy and features a fleece inner which provides some warmth and excellent comfort.
The Mountain fit makes them comfortable to wear over base layers and combined with the stretch of the fabric it provides unrestricted movement when climbing or walking. The pants feature fully adjustable and removable braces and have an integrated waist belt. There are two zipped hand pockets for storing close to hand required items, and to assist with your temperature regulation they have two thigh vents. A handy addition to the pants is that they feature softshell gaiters with integrated lace hooks, so provide a good trouser boot seal. These are also removable if you don't require them making the trousers versatile for year round use. Providing lower leg protection from crampons the instep area is reinforced with Dyneema patches and the hem is bonded for added durability. The ankles also feature a zipped internal panel giving you flexibility with your boot options.

Customer Reviews of Mountain Equipment G2 Ultimate Mountain Pant (Winter 18)
I bought this for hiking during the worst of the winter weather on Dartmoor.For those days when its not raining yet - but you know there's going to be some heavy showers and cold winds.But you don't want to boil in the bag wearing over trousers all the time (or have the hassle of having to put over trousers on and off each time a shower hits)
It keeps you quite warm and is reasonably waterproof - not to the same degree as a hardshell but good enough for occasional showers.
But what it does do is breathe much better than wearing a pair of over trousers.
Over all very pleased with these trousers.
