When you're riding at your limit, in places where falls can have serious consequences, you'll take every advantage you can get. Not only are the Smarty 3-in-1 Men's Compression Cargo Pants from 686 built with a 20K waterproof membrane and fully-taped seams, they come with a removable Coolmax compressive liner designed to reduce muscle vibrations and decrease fatigue, giving you that edge when you need it most. The compressive layer also features an antimicrobial barrier and wicking technology, to keep things dry and manage the stank when you're on extended expeditions.
Stretch isn't limited to the compression liner, either—the shell is made with a slightly stretchy herringbone weave, which works with the articulated knees and gusseted crotch to increase ease of movement whether you're shredding spine lines or booting up a couloir. Venting is important on long trips, too, so 686 hooked the Compression Cargo up with inseam and invisible zipper crotch vents to keep the air flowing. A zipper-adjustable lower leg opening keeps your pants tight when you need them to be, but loosens up if you're looking for that in-bounds steeze, and BOA-lace-compatible ankle gaiters mean you can adjust your boots without fiddling with pant cuffs. 686 threw in a Recco avalanche reflector and goggle chamois, too, just because they could.
