Ibex Breakaway 2 Pant

breakaway-pant_opt~s250x500I can stop looking—I’ve finally found THE cross-country ski pant. The Ibex Breakaway 2 Pant blends new soft shell technology with the old-school standby: temperature regulating and stink-fighting wool. These formfitting pants feature Climawool softshell panels on the front (a stretchy, breathable, wind- and water-resistant blend of nylon and wool), while the back is a plush wool knit. So far this winter I’ve used them in a range of conditions across the upper Midwest. From stride skiing on mild, sunny afternoons to skate skiing on subzero, blustery mornings (with a light baselayer), I pretty much forgot I had them on–a testament to their impeccable fit and comfort. The pants are simple and sleek with a high elastic waist to lock out cold air, generous ankle zips for easy wear over boots, one zipper pocket and reflective detailing. Added bonus: they’re made in Canada. MSRP $225. More info at —Kate Watson
