A 2-layer H2No membrane creates a waterproof, breathable barrier to moisture, and a DWR coating helps keep water from seeping in. Lightweight synthetic insulation maintains its insulating properties even if it does somehow get damp, keeping you warm throughout all of your snow day adventures. Belt loops let you adjust the fit with a belt, and gaiters keep the snow from sneaking up your legs. A scuff guard on the inner ankle protects the pants from getting snagged by boots or snowshoes, increasing durability. Patagonia Snowbelle pants are the perfect women's winter pant for spending time outside in the winter.
