Lightweight insulated trousers using Mountain Equipment's Polarloft insulation providing weather-resistant warmth.
Mountain Equipment says:
Insulated overtrousers that provide critical extra warmth for super alpine climbing, ski-mountaineering and winter camping.
With a tiny pack size the Compressor Pant is a crucial extra layer for alpinists and skiers. Full length side zips make them easy to put on even whilst on skis and the POLARLOFT® insulation keeps working in the face of hostile conditions. Essential kit for summit pushes or winter camps.
Mountain Equipment's Compressor Pants are light enough to sit in your pack until you really need the extra boost of warmth that they will supply. Fully opening leg zips obviously mean you can get these pants on over just about any layer without any problems.
The synthetic insulation that is used has a woven or mat construction which gives the pants are fairly low profile for an insulated garment. They provide instant warmth and a good amount of it for their weight.
