Base Jump Advanced II Pants – the latest version of Mammut’s very popular trousers – uses stretchy and durable Schoeller fabric with a 3XDry treatment for fast drying. The fabric is an excellent weight for general hill use, making them a good option throughout the year until shorts are needed. The seat and ankle cuff are reinforced for extra durability, and a good length of zipped gusset in the ankle cuff as well as a Velcro tab adjuster allows some control over fit. At the waist there are belt loops and a soft wicking lining for extra comfort. The pockets are all zipped and the thigh pocket is perfect for an OS map. Other less dazzling colours are available!
Material Schoeller 3XDry (95% nylon, 5% elastane)
Men’s sizes 28-46 (+ 3 leg lengths)
Women’s sizes 6-20

Mammut Base Jump Advanced II Pants are great all-rounders.
