Synthetic Fill

APEX by Climashield, a superior continuous filament synthetic insulation, is the choice here.

We have 2 weights available. For summer season mountain use in the continental US (and the Alps) the 2.5 oz/yd level is appropriate. Shoulder season users can select the 3.6 Apex level.

The APEX specs:

2.5 oz/yd Climashield APEX - 85 g/m - light, compact, 2 season
3.6 oz/yd Climashield APEX  - 122 g/m - more weight/bulk, 3 season


Shell, 10d ripstop nylon: Finely textured, comfortable and about the lightest material possible for practical shell use. Very breathable with minimal moisture repellency. 

Shell, 15d ripstop nylon: While only 15d this fabric is a significant step up in durability and tear strength over the 10d.  Almost ultralight certified, with just a slight weight penalty between ¾ - 1½ ounces depending on size.

Liner, 10d taffeta: Black non-ripstop smooth weave. 

Liner, 20d taffeta: Burly liner material for passing muddy boots thru regularly.

Product Options
Pants Style
Adjustable Elastic Waist and Plain Jeans Style Leg Opening
Adjustable Elastic Waist and Elastic Leg Openings. Best Option for Knickers.
Waist Size
Size up when in doubt or when worn over more than running shorts/long johns.
Here are both pants and knickers options. Actual inseam length will measure shorter as insulated pants generally ride lower; and to protect the leg opening from wear.
Climashield APEX Level

 The lightest in weight offers the least warmth, etc. 

2.5 oz/yd
3.6 oz/yd
Shell Material

Two options: Ultralight 10d for the lightest, most breathable and best lofting performance. 15d for more durability and tear resistance with only a small weight penalty.

Liner Fabric
10d Black Taffeta - Lightest, most breathable
20d Black Taffeta - Durable
Pant Leg Zipper Opening
Located on the outside of the lower leg. Size the zipper to allow footwear to pass through. Trail running shoes need only 12 inches, while boots may require 20" zippers. Consider full length separating zippers for ease of use while skiing, mountaineering, doing winter sports, etc.
Pant Suspenders
Removable. Installed suspenders adds 15g
No Suspenders

Stuff Sack
Our stuff sacks are pretty dope, but current weight saving trends in ultralight circles eschews this once crucial item. So, opt out and save $ while also being very current.
No stuff sack
Yes, please include a stuff sack
