Refined in conjunction with some of the world’s most extreme alpine adventurers, our Steep Series™ Purist Trousers deliver new levels of ventilation and mobility for those who enjoy climbing to find their own lines.

A new ventilation design lets in more airflow than ever before, ensuring you never overheat or feel uncomfortable as you dial up the intensity. For heightened durability, there are reinforced kick patches, as well as a reinforced hem. Harness-friendly and featuring gear tethers, you can head up and rip your way down with essential equipment close to hand.
