Black Diamond designed its Men's Dawn Patrol LT Climbing Softshell Pant for the minimalist ice or alpine climber who values light weight over a full rack of extras. Schoeller StretchWoven fabric offers unbelievable mobility on the mountain, and it remains highly breathable for excellent relief when you work up a sweat. Black Diamond added its proprietary NanoSphere Technology to resist dirty rocks, wet ice, and even your own oily skin. And a Recco rescue reflector could help Recco-equipped patrols find you in case of an emergency.
A slim fit pulls the Dawn Patrol close to your lower body to reduce bulk, and a gusseted construction increases your range of motion. Black Diamond integrated a drawcord at the hem to cinch tightly across your waist regardless of how many layers you have on. Kickpatches at the cuffs ensure long-lasting durability that's sure to last through many first ascents, second ascents, and even final ascents for multiple seasons.
Five cams, a set of nuts and four screws: an alpine climbing rack is stripped to the essentials, and the Black Diamond Dawn Patrol LT Climbing Pant follows suit. Designed with a single-minded focus on efficiency for long, technically demanding mountain routes, the Dawn Patrol LT is built with Schoeller stretch-woven softshell fabric that’s durable and weather-resistant without restricting movement. An integrated RECCO system provides an additional safety tool in avalanche terrain, and the drawcord cuffs and reinforced kick patches protect against debris and crampon points.
When they created this piece, Black Diamond's need was simple: a pant with a single-minded focus on vertical ascents at pace, in comfort, with confidence. Their process led them to the LT Climbing Pant, the embodiment of durability - it's both efficient and effective.
