If you ever experienced the half-soak you know how important totally waterproof pants are. What is the half-soak you may ask?

The reinforced knees, seat, and lower legs shrug off abuse and the the Keprotec instep patches let you tromp around in crampons or skis without worrying about ripping your pants.

Avoid the half-soak and fully waterproof your system with the Beta AR pant from Arc'teryx.
