The North Face says about the Summit Futurelight Pant Women's
Delivering the highest level of durable, breathable-waterproof protection, our Summit Series™ FUTURELIGHT™ Trousers are designed to defy the challenges of high alpine mountaineering conditions. The three-layer stretch fabric has reinforced kickpatches to better stand up to brushes with rock and other sharp mountain tools. Adjustable integrated stretch gaiters and hems provide a seamless fit with a variety of mountaineering boots and completely remove the need for separate gaiters. These trousers come with suspenders for a better fit, though they're completely removable. And if you like carrying essential gear close to hand, there's a roomy thigh pocket with an integrated gear loop. Summit Series™ layers all work together for optimum performance in terms of breathability, insulation, weather resistance and moisture management.
