3 layer, ultra lightweight, micro-ripstop Polartec® NeoShell® fabric. NeoShell® has a highly aerobic air permeability with advanced wicking capabilities to keep moisture vapour away from your core. Prior to NeoShell® the elusive balance between waterproof and windproof protection and true breathability had yet to exist in a hard shell fabric.
Internal gaiters with elasticated gripper cuff, electroplated metal boot clasp and internal cord cinch for a tight seal. YKK® Aquaguard® ¾ length two-way leg zips sized to stop short of harness pressure points.
Vertically aligned chest pockets give better volume for valuables storage. YKK® Aquaguard® coil zips are water repellant, flexible and hard wearing. Mesh pocket inners promote temperature regulation when working hard.
Two hip pockets for valuables storage for cold hands protection. YKK® Aquaguard® coil zips are water repellant, flexible and hard wearing.

It is likely that you haven't heard of the Jottnar brand but rest assured that this company has hit the ground running. Delivering high performance technical outerwear that rivals any of the current big name brands. The Vanir LT was hands down the best pair of ski pants I have ever had the opportunity to abuse, no babying required. After 50 days of ski touring, snowmobiling, and helicopter bumps and hut to hut ski traverses the pants remain in almost new condition with hardly any signs of wear. The Vanir LT has greatly out preformed and out lasted any other piece of outerwear I've abused over the years. I can't justify pulling anything else out of the closet.
