Forbidden Peak's serrated alpine ridges can take you to a different world, one of daunting exposure and breathtaking views. All guarded, of course, by thickets of Devil's Club and slide alder (it is the Cascades, after all). Our new Guide Pants use our best-ever Guide fabric, a Polartec Power Shield stretch-woven blend (nylon/polyester/spandex) with Hardface Technology that dramatically improves the Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish's resistance to wind, water, snow and abrasion, while remaining stretchy and highly breathable. The features are pared to the bare bones for technical climbing: pull-on waist (flat front with drawcord, elastic back), three zippered pockets (two front handwarmers, one rear) and articulated knees. Further detailing includes a brushed interior for next-to-skin comfort and trim, with tie-down grommets for attaching under-heel cords.
