Millet Miage Pant


What makes a pant superior isn’t just about what it does do, but also about what it doesn’t do. It shouldn’t hinder upward progress; be too tight or too baggy; make you sweat or itch; look unstylish; have too many or too few pockets; or interact poorly with your harness and other gear. From the Alps of Switzerland to Boulder Canyon and Rocky Mountain National Park of Colorado, the Miage didn’t do any of those things, acting as a perfect all-around pant. Rugged, two-way-stretch Scholler One fabric looked new after six months of abrasion, and it shed graupel and light drizzles up high in Switzerland. “These bottoms rock for the articulated knees, which are ‘pre-bent’ for an active fit—they didn’t ride up or get caught when I high-stepped,” our traveling tester said. “Plus, the six-inch vents on each thigh open up so you don’t get swampy on sweaty approaches.” $110;
