This kit from Columbia seeks to make the paradoxical idea of supreme warmth and breathability a reality. By using a special pattern of 3D silver reflectors, the Columbia Snow Rival II Pant 2020 retains a tremendous amount of heat, but is also a champion of moisture-wicking, ensuring you won’t overheat when your heart rate rises or the sun begins to beat down on you. The use of microscopic fiber clusters creates enough gap between your body and the fabric to provide next-to-skin smoothness that’s sure to keep you comfortable all winter long.
FREESKIER tester thoughts: “I was skeptical at first, thinking I’d quickly overheat, but even after hiking in the blazing sun for 20 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised at how breathable the Powder Keg and Snow Rival were. When the clouds and wind came in, though, I was pretty happy to have that added warmth.”
