Spyder Nordwand Shell Pant – 2014
From the Editors of Freeskier:
Athletes like Chris Davenport need a kit that provides ultimate protection against the elements. The fully seam taped, 20K/20K, 3L nylon fabric offers heightened waterproofing and breathability while keeping you dry on storm days with a powder skirt that snaps out of the way when not needed. Stretchy material in the pant waist prevents unwanted movement from the garment and a mesh goggle pocket and lens wipe keep your goggles clean and dry. Lastly, look to the reinforced cuffs to protect the pants during spring mountaineering missions and anti-abrasion material in the shoulders to keep the jacket durable.
Paired Product: Spyder Eiger Shell JacketThe Pros: Very lightweight yet bombproof.
The Cons: Back pocket closes with Velcro instead of a zipper.
