Snugpak Parallax Insulated Pants

Keeping your top half warm is one thing ~ these Parallax Pants from Snugpak will do the same for your legs when the conditions get cold, writes Mike Gormley.

Last month I reviewed the new Tomahawk Jacket from Snugpak and the Parallax Pants are the second half of this equation.

As I said for the Tomahawk Jacket, it is properly warm. The same goes for the Parallax Pants. These can be used either as primary trousers or as over-trousers. They are fully insulated with Snugpak’s own Softie insulation, and this really works very well indeed. Just moments after putting on these garments you feel that warm glow.

The outer fabric is Paratex Micro, which is highly windproof and has high level of resistance to the wet. This is backed up on areas of high levels of contact, i.e. backside and knees, which have an additional layer of waterproof material. Despite all this proofing, these do not get hot and sweaty when you are busy on the inside, at least for ‘normal’ levels of use.

These trousers can be worn as either as a primary or an outer layer ~ note full length side zips [©JG]

If required, you have adjustable and removable braces and the waist is part-elasticated for comfort. The legs are fully zipped using YKK zips. These are both comfortable and warm if active or just ‘waiting out’ in a cold spot. They are quite generously sized, a Medium fitting me where Large is my normal.

Available in five sizes, in either Olive or Genuine MultiCam, the Snugpak Parallax Pants weigh 850g or 30oz (Medium) and pack down to 30x20cm or 12×8” in their stuff sack. Temperature rating is -5°C / 23°F Comfort or -10°C / 14°F Low.
