Built with unwavering attention to descent-oriented details, Patagonia's Untracked Pants feature a wonderfully soft, supple (and quiet) 3-layer stretch fabric construction (92 % recycled Nylon), a fully dialed yet refined, low-bulk design and unsurpassed windproof and waterproof/breathable performance for riding anywhere, anytime. A soft, brushed interior increases warmth and manages moisture while minimizing bulk. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents saturation and increases abrasion resistance.
The highly articulated fit and flexed pattern at the knees allow exceptional mobility, and mesh-lined thigh vents with Vislon® zippers circulate air to reduce heat buildup. Gaiters with gripper elastic, a snow-shedding nylon liner between the gaiter and interior cuff, and a DWR finish create a tenacious seal for serious postholing. Other features include watertight, coated zippers with slim zip installation to reduce bulk and weight, burly scuff guards, slick taffeta at the waist that glides smoothly over layers, adjustable tabs to fine-tune the fit, an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector, and four zippered pockets—two handwarmers and two thigh pockets.
Since 1985, Patagonia has pledged 1% of sales to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. 1% for the Planet is an alliance of businesses that understand the necessity of protecting the natural environment. They understand that profit and loss are directly linked to its health, and are concerned with the social and environmental impacts of industry.
Patagonia's mission statement is to "build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis." Clear as day! They work hard to produce innovative, high-quality, simple and utile apparel that help explorers and outdoor enthusiasts achieve their dreams.
