REI Kulshan women’s pants

GearFlogger reviews the REI Kulshan women's eVENT pants eVent is a rockin' material. It breathes like teenagers on prom night, weighs almost nothing and is tough enough to take the abuse dished out by you backcountry bumpkins. REI comes through for the ladies with the SheFlogger-approved Kulshan eVent pants, built to tackle pretty much anything.

The Kulshan is serious gear. Full separating water resistant side zips let the pants go on and off without removing your boots, and the rip-and-stick tabs that cover the zipper pull at your waist also adjust the sizing. There are belt loops if you want them, a front zip fly with a single snap closure, a zipped right-side thigh pocket and two zipped hand pockets. Powder cuffs have two-position snaps and rip-and-stick strips, and crampon patches protect your cankles.

The Kulshan moves easily thanks to the articulated knees, gussetted crotch and flat taped seams. On the left leg outside cuff is a nice feature, a Recco reflector that aids Recco detector-equipped searchers in locating your body. A lot of resorts have the detectors these days, especially in Europe, but it doesn't aid or interfere with normal avalanche transceivers. The Kulshan pants are a great deal for the price, and built to last. Be aware that the smallest size is a 4, which is a bit large for the five footers out there.
