Fully featured, lightweight soft-shell trousers from Patagonia. The Altvia Alpine Pants have added durability for long alpine rock routes and all-day movement up on the hills.
A lightweight recycled polyester/elastane blend provides excellent stretch for greater mobility. Durable recycled nylon/recycled elastane paneling where it matters provides extra protection from rock and abrasion. Designed with climbing in mind, the articulated pattern allows ultimate mobility for long approaches and all-day comfort under a harness. This comfort is enhanced by the lie-flat construction of the pockets, and the secure front pockets and right rear pocket have breathable mesh pocket bags.
