Finely tuned for self-supported travel into deep, wild places where the commitment is greater, but the rewards are deeper, Patagonia's Reconnaissance Pants are made for all-day movement through the shifting weather and conditions of the backcountry. Our most breathable snow shell, they have a supple, double-weave soft-shell fabric throughout the legs, paired with waterproof/breathable 3-layer fabric reinforcements with 2-way stretch for a hardworking blend of breathable comfort and durable weather-protection. A DWR (durable water repellent) finish prevents saturation and sheds snow and muck. The snow-seal gaiters form a tight bond over boots when you’re postholing, and scuff guards add durability for full-time riders. Zippers on low-profile cuffs allow easy access to boot buckles and a two-snap closure system, with integrated cord management, provides a snug fit when you’re using crampons or climbing shoes. For long uphills or big spring days, side vents allow a cooling airflow. Expandable thigh pockets lay flat for aerodynamics yet easily hold your hat and gloves when you break out the thermos for lunch. With an articulated fit designed for freedom of movement and an embedded RECCO® avalanche rescue reflector.
