If alpinism is in your heart, then soft shell pants should be either on your legs or your mind. The Arc'teryx Psiphon AR Pant is an exquisite example of a softshell pant. The pant is designed with DoubleWeave four way stretch technology that is burly enough to stand up to anything from ice climbing to chimney climbing. Three pockets give you ample choice to store bars, a phone, and gloves or a hat. The built in belt sits nicely under a harness or backpack waistbelt, a seamless inner leg and reinforced instep help reduce snagging and provide a little extra protection in the high wear areas. The trim fit may be a turn off at first glance but these pants stretch like none other - there are no restrictions to movement, only a sleeker look and reduced snag points. Take these guys to the crag, the mountains, or on a ski tour, they are optimal as a crossover pant.
