Montane's Astro Ascent Trousers are durable eVent waterproof overtrousers. The eVent fabric allows for excellent breathability which will keep your legs comfortable while you're still working hard on your trek or climb.
Whilst climbing, protecting your legs from ice, rain and the cold can be critical. Legs have more direct contact with snow and spray than the upper body so ensuring weatherproof protection is essential. The Astro Ascent Trousers are constructed from highly breathable eVent Hurricane fabric and reinforced in critical areas with DIAMOND FACE, which provides dependable extra durability and protection from rock scrapes and ankle knocks.
These trousers have a tailored fit reducing excess fabric when worn as an overtrouser and feature ‘high step’ articulation built into the knees to ensure they are comfortable across a range of dynamic movements. They also feature full length YKK Aqua Guard side zips for full mountain functionality.

Montane's exceptional waterproof over-trouser made from highly breathable eVent fabric. Although on the heavy side this reflects their extreme weather features such as full length waist to ankle side zips that means you can get them over winter weight footwear. The width at the ankle is similarly generous to accommodate large winter boots.
They have a zip fly which is a good feature that often gets removed when constructing a lightweight pair of overtrousers. So, they will cope comfortably with winter mountaineering conditions yet are still suitable for year-round use, although if you don't need such a demanding spec there are lighter alternatives.
