The Mens Outdoor Research Axcess Pants are intended for extreme conditions and extreme skiers. Designed with 2-layer Gore-Tex, the Axcess Pants provides breathable comfort along with waterproof and windproof protection. Outdoor Research incorporated great detail into the Axcess Pant; a gusseted crotch, nylon/spandex-knit mesh gaiters with gripper elastic, articulated knees and reinforced ankle scuff guards all unite to protect you from the harshest winter weather. EnduraLoft Insulation was strategically placed in these sidecountry pants for superior warmth and the relaxed cut will fend off the wettest fresh-falling snow. With two cargo pockets and one back pocket you will have plenty of room to store the essentials like energy bars, a season pass and your MP3 player. A super soft brushed tricot lined waist band and snap and zipper fly with adjustable elastic tabs will keep you comfortable all day. The versatile Mens Outdoor Research Axcess Pants will guarantee you spend more time carving turns in the backcountry and less time avoiding the Arctic winds and wet spring snow storms.
