Black Diamond Dawn Patrol Approach Pant -

The Black Diamond Dawn Patrol Approach Pants are a versatile piece of apparel that can handle multiple, varied activities in one outing. I'm talking about technical, challenging activities, like skiing in, climbing up, then skiing out. Not like sitting on a couch, then walking to another room, then sitting on a different couch (well, it can handle that, too). The StretchWoven nylon fabric is stretchy for full mobility, the NanoSphere technology will shed moisture and hold in warmth, and it has a brushed back for comfort. The lower leg gusset is expandable with a zipper to the knee to accommodate ski boots, mountaineering boots, or whatever footwear your activity demands. To top it all off, the Dawn Patrol Approach pants are fitted with a RECCO Reflector for increased avalanche safety.

Well-known for its high quality hardgoods, Black Diamond has entered the apparel game this year, debuting a new line of high-performance outdoor clothing that supports the activities the company knows best. The Men's Dawn Patrol Approach Softshell Pant was designed for ski touring and alpine climbing adventures, or trips that include both during the same outing, allowing for dynamic movement while providing water-repellent protection.

Stretchy softshell fabric made by Schoeller textiles, a Swiss company who specializes in high-performance fabrics, along with gusseted construction, allow for optimal range of movement. The Schoeller fabric is treated with a NanoSphere DWR finish that utilizes nano particles on the fabric surface that repel water and dirt, keeping the fabric dry and clean. The zippered lower leg with an expandable gusset allows the pant to fit over ski or mountaineering boots so you can switch up mid-trip or use one or the other depending on the day's activities, and the drawcord hem acts like a gaiter to seal out snow and moisture. Four pockets give you plenty of room to pack along tools and supplies, and the two-way zippered fly allows you to relieve yourself quickly with ease in the backcountry. All in all, Black Diamond is a company of backcountry touring experts whose trusted design and engineering know-how is making great headway into the apparel world, this pant being a case in point.

Dramatic changes in weather, elevation and terrain require a pant that can keep up. The Black Diamond Dawn Patrol Touring Pant is built with durable yet highly responsive Schoeller stretch-woven softshell fabric that shields against alpine weather while maintaining a high-level of breathability. Ideal for a variety of alpine objectives from fat blue ice to deep white fluff, the Dawn Patrol Approach Pant also features ample pocket storage, an integrated RECCO system and a zippered, expandable lower-leg gusset that lets you easily transition between mountain boots and ski boots.

Mountain Gear
Dawn Patrol - an early morning quest for fresh tracks - is a Black Diamond tradition and the inspiration for their Approach Pant.

Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS)
Built for alpine objectives from deep snow to steep ice, Black Diamond's Approach Pants shield against alpine weather with the flexibility, breathability, and durability of Schoeller soft shell fabric. They feature an integrated RECCO system, ample pockets, and an expandable lower-leg gusset that lets you transition easily between mountain boots and ski boots.
