Winter can be fickle, toggling the temps without warning and blasting the heat lamps when you least expect it. Hardshell ski pants get you ready for the ch-ch-ch-CHANGES, so turn and face the Strafe Capitol pants.
Strafe uses high-durability Recon Elite 3L material for its outer layer, delivering 20k/20k waterproofing along with superior breathability and wind resistance. This lighter-than-Gore-Tex synthetic is backed up by fully sealed seams and a water-repellent finishing treatment. The flexibility and freedom of movement of hardshell pants also allows Strafe to work in handy extras like an oversized hand pocket shape and built-in mesh electronics sleeve. These are extremely durable pants thanks to the Cordura hem and scuff guards, so you’ll be able to ride them for years to come.
In an industry where a lot of classic “core” brands have gone stale and corporate, Strafe is one of the new community-based apparel companies on the block. Founded in 2009 by Aspen-based skiers John and Pete Gaston, Strafe’s overall approach to making ski and snowboard clothes is shaped by the actual, practical needs of real-world winter sports – not the complacent “they’re just buying our logo” mindset of the big boys.
John and Pete fell in love with Highland Bowl in Aspen, where all-day laps require a lift ride and a summit hike up to 12,000 feet to rip down steep, technical powder lines. Everything that Strafe makes is therefore built for maximum waterproofing, breathability, and range of motion, in a distinct style that will make you stand out on the hill.
