The Patagonia Crestview Pant was aptly named for the best part of any hike--the point in which you finally put that steep summit push behind you, crest over the last pitch, and get to enjoy the expansive view you spent the last 10 miles trying to get to. Designed for colder weather and made with a flexible yet rugged fabric, this pant lets you move the way you need to on steep trails and technical terrain, and withstands abrasion from tree branches and rough rock. The gusseted crotch and articulated knees continue in the pursuit of giving you full, unrestricted motion, ensuring that your clothes will never be a source of continued stress on longer backpacking treks. For greater comfort and easier access to boots the ankles have a zippered gusset, and also boast a reinforced scuff guard to reduce damage from abrasion. All of the pockets have zippered closures to keep trail maps, snacks, and smaller pieces of gear secure, helping you maximize your time in the woods.
