Like the Kästle TW152 Mountaineering Women's Jacket, the Mountaineering Pant is very stylish with a european cut, and technical features that are seemingly unstoppable.
I typically wear a size M or (8US) and found these pants to be slightly larger than expected, but easy to adjust with the velcro adjustable waist, with ample length for the long legged skier who's tired of the the short and boxy looking attire.
The Kastle TW252 Mountaineering Pant has many of the features that you'd expect for ski pants of its class, like side zip venting, velcro adjustable waist, convenient pockets, water proof, wind proof, breathable, 4 way stretch fabric......but what you may not expect to see are Fully Fusion Technology to avoid seams, and a zipper at the top of the waist band which matches the optional powder skirt found with the matching Kästle TW152 Mountaineering Women's Jacket.
This zipper combo creates a one piece ski suit feel with the convenience of a two piece outfit, which keeps out the snow and wind on the blustery days when you're on the hunt for powder.
Ski outfits may come and go, but this one is sure to stay in my line up for some time to come.
