The Dynafit Mercury Pro 2 Men's Pants are a wind and water repellent outer layer made with proprietary Dynashell. This fabric is a stretch-woven, fuzzy-lined nylon softshell that works as a great outer layer for all-season touring. The Mercury Pro 2 feature a new lower cuff zipper that allows you to transition the Hoji ski/walk mechanism without lifting up your pant leg. Streamline transitions for the win! Also new to the Mercury is the Dynafit Sweat Pad: a removable lower back pad that can be taken out at the top transition to leave you with dry, sweat-free pants for skiing down. What a thoughtful design to avoid uncomfortable swass descents. Some features that continue on with the Mercury Pro 2 pants are vent zips, reinforced cuff fabric, an adjustable waistband, and a few external zippered pockets for touring necessities. These are breathable, unincumbered touring pants that you can use all season long. Convenient features where you want them and nothing extra.
