The Women’s Vapor Point Pant is Black Diamond’s lightest hardshell for backcountry skiers, tourers, mountaineers, and alpinists. Gore-Tex Active gives this streamlined three-layer shell guaranteed waterproof protection, and fully taped seams enhance waterproofing by preventing snow from seeping through. Gore-Tex Active offers more breathability than most waterproof membranes to keep you comfier on the skin up. The Vapor Point’s active fit keeps the bulk at bay, while articulated knees ensure freedom of movement on the downhill. Black Diamond integrated a ladder-lock belt to the low-profile harness-compatible waist. Side zippers offer easy access to ski boots, and drawcord cuffs prevent the zippers from opening up. Keprotec keeps the cuffs strong for seasons, and Recco’s avalanche reflector helps Recco-equipped ski patrols find you in emergencies.
