Mammut Extreme Hybrid Pant

I must admit that I was a little skeptical when I received the Extreme Hybrid pant in the mail. They seemed slightly bulky, and I wasn’t so sure about the suspenders.

Boy was I surprised! I put these pants on when I got to base camp, and they didn’t come off until we got back!!! They are super comfortable with their half soft shell/half hard shell design, while still providing great wind protection. When you are hauling huge loads, you can open the massive side vents to cool yourself off. The large crampon protectors came in handy when we were post-holeing up to our waists in the snow drifts.

I would have to say that my only complaint would be that if you were not smart about which layer you put your suspenders over you would have some difficulty doing the number 2. I will be wearing these pants on big mountains in the future!
