Black Diamond Mission Pants
The Black Diamond Mission Pants are the top-spec skiing and snowboarding pants from Black Diamond and are a perfect combo with the Black Diamond Mission Jacket. Made from three-layer waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex fabric, they will keep you protected and warm whether you’re having a day of in-bounds fun or a mega backcountry excursion. Offset side vents and a relaxed articulated fit mean you’ll be super comfortable, while extra safety features include a Pieps transceiver pocket and RECCO.

GORE-TEX® Pro 3-layer
Garments made with 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro fabric are durably waterproof, windproof and extremely breathable. They combine comfort with reliable weather protection, even during extended activities in extreme weather.
The fabric’s construction keeps your body dry by reducing the accumulation of sweat, so you remain cool during aerobic activities and warm during cool-down. Made to meet the high demands of (ski)mountaineers, freeriders, mountain guides and serious outdoor enthusiasts, garments made with 3-layer GORE-TEX® Pro fabric are engineered with added durability to withstand abrasion in rugged environments while protecting against extreme and unpredictable conditions with frequent work-rest cycles.
DWR (durable water repellent) is a coating added to fabrics at the factory to make them water-resistant (or hydrophobic). Most factory-applied treatments are fluoropolymer based. Durable water repellents are commonly used in conjunction with waterproof breathable fabrics such as Gore-Tex to prevent the outer layer of fabric from becoming saturated with water. This saturation, called 'wetting out,' can reduce the garment's breathability (moisture transport through the breathable membrane) and let water through.
RECCO® reflectors do not prevent avalanches, nor do they guarantee location or survival of a buried or lost person. Reflectors are also not a substitute for an avalanche rescue beacon. However, when someone needs more help than their friends can provide, RECCO® reflectors do provide another chance.
Black Diamond have teamed up with Pieps to create an innovative new transceiver system, the Pieps Pocket. It eliminates problems associated with chest harnesses, where beacons can be hard to reach due to layering, as well as pretty uncomfortable. The Pieps pocket is a protected harness system in the thigh pocket, with a secure attachment system that’s easy to attach your transceiver to and easy to reach when you need it. Genius!
Boot Access Gaiter
These pants have an integrated zip in the boot gaiter, so you can adjust your ski boots easily without having to lift your gaiters up and risk letting in cold air or snow.
