Like its coat pairing, the Patagonia Refugitive pants feature the same stretchy three-layer Gore-Tex fabric with a Gore’s C-knit backing. But unlike the jacket, the two-pocket backcountry-light pants fit like a touring pant—as in tight around the cuffs (for crampon use) and the hips. Although the thigh-vent zips do their breathability thing, the small hip pockets make for a more restricting fit.

If you like a slim fit, these techy, breathable pants made with 20k/20k Gore-Tex are a solid lightweight touring option.
