It's hard to match the freedom of hitting our favorite run through secret powder fields in deep snow. The North Face Freedom Pant enables us to seek out the fresh stashes in comfort. Its lightweight, waterproof, and breathable DryVent membrane keeps us protected when snow is falling and when we're falling in the snow. Meanwhile StretchVent gaiters at the leg openings prevent snow from sneaking into our socks when we're slashing our reliable powder stash. These same gaiters trap warm air to so that it rises and releases out of the inner thigh vents.
