Over the course of a season, skiers travel--a lot. Whether it's hopping on a plane to go halfway across the country or just jumping in the car to head up to the mountain, if we're not skiing, odds are we're traveling somewhere to go skiing.
It's with this travelling ski bum in mind that 686 designed their new GLCR Everywhere Multi Shell Pant. With enough technical aspects to rival your favorite part of ski pants while still remaining pretty darn stylish, these pants can take you, well, everywhere.
I recently put the Everywhere pant to test during a weeklong ski trip to Utah, and I'd be lying if I said I wore a different pair of pants all week. Made of a 92 percent nylon/8 percent Spandex stretch fabric, they were comfortable enough to wear for eight hours in the car while still being stretchy and active enough to crash the Park City lift ops vs. patrollers annual kickball game. The pants are also made with a stain resistant finish along with a DWR coating (the same waterproof coating you'll find in 686's top technical jackets) meaning that even the worst beer or nacho spill at après won't be leaving you heading home to change pants.
The Everywhere’s 10-pocket design makes keeping all your belongings in order while you're running through an airport trying to catch a flight. A hidden zippered pocket along the outer-thigh seam is perfect for holding your passport, cash, and other must-not-lose items. Other smaller highlights include an RFID blocking pocket to protect your credit cards, as well as a removable shoelace belt for making going through TSA easier than lapping the bunny hill.
Coming in at $80, they don't cost that much more than your go-to pair of jeans, while still packing in the tech you'd expect to see in a set of touring bibs. As I pack for my upcoming trips through the end of the season and into the summer, I guarantee these pants will have a spot in my suitcase.
