The Gradient Pant is an unbelievably comfortable midlayer best worn under waders and bibs to insulate against bone chilling temperatures. While it might feel like a well-worn pair of thick cotton sweatpants, the Gradient is anything but. The fully synthetic technical construction insulates even when wet. The high-gauge knit polyester face fabric reduces friction under waders or bibs, while the supple, lofted Berber fleece delivers warmth and unparalleled softness. The gusseted crotch resists bunching, and articulated patterning means you’ll get around with zero restriction. The foot stirrups keep the pant from riding up when slipping into waders or your favorite rubber boots. A durable water repellent finish protects against light moisture and hastens drying time, while the built-in belt lets you customize the fit. Hip pockets and a diagonal zippered front security pocket keep your essentials where you need them.
