New Navy

    Completing the new and improved, purpose-built shell kit, the CHAM PANT received the same fabric update as the Cham Jacket with the ultralight, air-permeable, and breathable Schoeller® Aerobrane. Add in the 3L fabric’s 4-way stretch and weather-proofing, the active fit, special considerations for crampon use, and a simplistic webbing and hook built-in belt adjustment, the Cham pant is ready for comfortable, unrestricted motion on swift ascents and descents in all conditions.

    Plus, with neutral colors and a gender graded size scale, we’re extra proud to make this iteration of Cham unisex fit. Please check the size guide.

    Beyond expectations

    Excellent fit, stretchy and breathable as advertised. Love the Navy with white zippers. Worth every penny.

    Cham Pant

    I have loved these pants. I needed to replace my Arcteryx Procline pants which were previously my favorite pant after a run in with a particularly bad bushwhack. Enter the Cham pant. They are so breathable. I am someone who usually tours in a sun hoody or a t shirt. Only in temps lower than 5 f will you find me in a jacket. These pants have been so breathable, and keep me cool even on zone 3 hr tours. I have recently skied them in some deep pow days and have never had them wet through. My only complaint with them is the bib. Its not bad or terrible. I just find myself using my pack belt to keep the bibs from sliding around weirdly. I am 6'1", 175 and have ski tourer thighs, these fit nicely, not tight like euro pants but still athletic.

    Super Versatile Hardshell!

    As someone that loves to play on snow and ice, hardshell pants are an essential component of my winter layering system. However, it can be hard to find a quiver of one that spans the different demands of ski mountaineering and ice climbing. At this, the Cham pant excels. The Schoeller Aerobrane material is impressively waterproof despite being lightweight and about as breathable as hardshell gets. Also, I normally swear by softshells for higher output tours, but I found myself in the Cham pants with hamstring vents open well into spring. On glaciated terrain, the streamlined belt played well with a harness, and large pockets kept the essentials close at hand for long pushes on a rope team. Also, the Cham pant is a great pairing with full zip puffy pants for colder nights on the ice. All in all a great pair of pants for anything that winter has to offer.
