  • Material mimics the surface of a lotus leaf using nanotechnology
  • Engineered with an intelligent, highly breathable membrane
  • Ankles reinforced with high-strength material

As we face life on Earth with new categories of weather, we’re going to need new categories of clothing. So we’ve started working on ski gear designed to help you adapt. The Waterfallproof Ski Pants are designed to combat the winters of the future, where crazily intense snowfall and rapidly shifting seasons becomes the norm – from megastorms dumping a year’s worth of snow, to wet spring conditions arriving early.

Highly waterproof and windproof they’re constructed with an advanced 3 layer Swiss material with an intelligent membrane that opens and closes in the heat, and self-drying nanotechnology that mimics a lotus leaf. The same technology makes the pants highly breathable and fast-drying, so they work just as well when the temperatures rise on the mountain. And with a four-way stretch detachable bib, waterproof zippers, reinforced ankle panels and cross-flow venting, they’ll keep you dry and comfortable all day, and all winter, whether you’re skiing the resort or deep in the backcountry.

Built with a Swiss supermaterial

The Waterfallproof Ski Pants are designed to combat the megastorms of the future, where crazily intense snowfall and rainfall becomes the norm. Highly waterproof, windproof, breathable and fast-drying, they’re constructed with an advanced 3 layer Swiss material from Schoeller, with an intelligent membrane that opens and closes in the heat, and self-drying nanotechnology borrowed from plants. Building the material alone requires a total of 28 separate construction processes.

Nanotechnology means water can’t stick to it

When a water droplet lands on a normal flat surface, it sticks easily and quickly begins to absorb. But when water hits the surface of the lotus leaf, it can only balance on the peaks of the tiny bumps, meaning any movement or a breeze will cause the liquid to simply roll away. The outside layer of the pants replicates the leaf’s microscale bumps using Schoeller’s nanosphere® technology. The bumps are completely imperceptible to the naked eye, but allow the pants to resist water, oil and dirt.

The winters of the future have already arrived in the mountains. From Pacific megastorms dumping metres of snow, to rapidly shifting seasons in the Alps. So the Waterfallproof Ski Pants are built for whatever the sky throws at you.

An advanced bib keeps you dry and comfortable

The pants come with a high-waist bib built to keep out the snow when it gets deep. The front and back of the bib are made from the same high-performance material as the rest of the pants, giving you extra protection from the elements if you need to open up your jacket. The shoulder straps are built from military-grade belt tape that’s easy to adjust on the move. The sides of the bib are built with a soft, highly elastic, water-repellent fabric that’s designed for extreme comfort and breathability. There’s also a hidden stash pocket on the front.

A custom engineered waistband

You’ll find two heavy-duty, elastic Velcro adjusters on either side of the waistband so you can tighten the waist the way you want it. There are also five large belt loops if you’re wearing the pants without the bib and prefer to leave nothing to chance. The belt loops are constructed with reinforced stitching and then bonded for increased durability. The zip fly is protected by two storm flaps, one internal, one external, as well as two metal snap fasteners and a second, lockable fastener.
