An insane combination of lightweight durability, the Ascent Pant from Sitka brings a an unheard of combination of lightweight and durability. At a paltry 12 Ounces this pant feels like your crushing rock in pajama jeans, but they are built for getting after it. We honestly thought these pants didn't have the stuff to make it for the long haul - but we were wrong, they are, in a nutshell, BADASS.
They do not come loaded with a knee pad, but it's a simple swap over from your Mountain Pant or Timberline Pant if you need additional protection. Designed for hot days spent charging in the mountains, and early season endeavors, the Ascent Pant features meshbacked pockets for ventilation and an internal mesh knee pad pocket if added protection is desired.
