La Sportiva's Axis Pants are super-slim fitting—do a little wiggle to get them on—but thanks to the stretchy softshell material, once zipped up, they are incredibly comfortable, flattering, and importantly, very functional. La Sportiva is a company founded to explore high mountains, and these pants were designed for touring or ski mountaineering. The stretchy fabric is breathable, durable, and waterproof and provides a great range of motion. The adjustable cuffs are reinforced with a tough layer of fabric to accommodate and protect from ski, boot, and crampon-related wear and tear. They served the POSSE well on fair-weather resort days, too.
