The North Face Meteor men's pants with 32 in. inseam offer the toughness of hard-shell pants but stay true to their soft-shell roots with stretchy breathability that keeps you comfortable.

  • Pertex® Equilibrium® stretch nylon is coated with a Durable Water Repellent finish so that water beads up and rolls off, keeping you dry in light showers or snow
  • Lightweight nylon material also wicks moisture away from skin, offering total moisture control inside and out for continuous comfort
  • Stretch woven panels on back of thighs and lower legs promote breathability and reduce bulk
  • Low front waist with integrated webbed belt keeps everything streamlined for zero interference with packs or harnesses; higher rise in the back minimizes movement under packs
  • Articulated knees allow for full range of motion; zippers at the cuffs widen the pant leg so they go over boots easily
  • The North Face Meteor pants with 32 in. inseam feature 2 zippered thigh pockets and 1 zippered rear pockets for securing small essentials
  • The Summit Series™ apparel is designed and tested for use in harsh environments

Rated4out of5byfromSolid Snowshoeing PantTook these pants on a snowshoe hike to Camp Muir on Mt Rainier. I absolutely loved them. They provided enough warmth and moisture repellency I didn't need my gaiters. The ankle reinforcement protects against abrasions from boots or snowshoes and the reinforced seat came in handy for a butt-slide down a steep slope! The only MINOR drawback is a backpack will work the waistband down in the back, but a pair of suspenders may prevent this. Incredible Investment!

Rated5out of5byfromI love these pantsI bought these pants to do a Hood climb that we had to postpone due to weather. I've worn them out walking/hiking with the dog and they're great. Very comfy and breathable; I'm sure they'll do fine on the mountain

Rated4out of5byfromSolid pantThese are some pretty solid pants. I have used them primarily for mountaineering in the winter/spring, with some snow shoeing thrown in there. They are very comfortable. They seem a bit on the snug side (I am usually a 32 but went with a 34 and it fits well and I can put a base layer under them). They also seem a bit short, but since I usually have gaiters on, that doesn't bug me. The way the waist is cut high on the back is great. It gives plenty of coverage while scrambling and grabbing stuff out of your pack. The belt system is also nice, very streamlined and functional. Same goes for the pockets. The thigh pockets are easy to get into even when wearing a harness and only use one hand to operate. These are great for just about all mountaineering unless its full blown summer. They do get a bit warm then. They do seem to breathe pretty well and the DWR on them is good. The wind isn't too much of an issue either. All in all, a solid and simple pair of pants.
