Primarily intended for expedition use, these pants are the perfect match for our Bering jacket. Together, they represent a strong and versatile alternative to a union suit. Three separate compartments are placed on the upper panel between the legs, allowing "a bit of bridging" at 24,000 ft without the risk of the pants ripping apart.

With reinforced seat, knees and lower leg, the pants will stand the abuse of expedition life. Fully separating side zippers let you vent or suit up without removing footwear or other clothing. The drop seat lets you answer calls of nature without removing suspenders. In front, a spacious, zippered outside pocket is available for maps and other essentials. The external draw cord secures easy adjustment.

The Baffin pants are the workhorse of any lineup of expedition gear. As with the Bering expedition jacket, the Baffin pants can be seen in action, as Mrs Oh Eun Sun reaches her last 8.000 summit out of the 14: Annapurna - April 27th 2010: KBC Summit video.
