The Patagonia Men's Snowshot Freeride Pant fills the role of Patagonia's most trusted all-around, all-season, all-conditions ski pant. It's a very well-rounded pant that works in just about any situation. Not surprising, given that Patagonia started out with its trusty H2No performance membrane, then combined it with a 75 denier polyester outer with a DWR finish for extra weather resistance. Mesh-lined thigh vents keep you cool on the way up, or the way down, if it's that kind of day. The internal ankle gaiters keep the snow where you want it, instead of gettin' all up in your leg-holes. Zippered pockets give you plenty of room for lip balm and snacks.
