Dynafit Mercury Pro Pants

“great for skinning with buckles fully open.”

The Tech: The Mercury Pro pants are designed to be as smooth as their elemental name implies. The softshell bottoms are comprised of stretchy nylon, and if the weather turns, a wind- and DWR treatment is intended to bead away moisture and chill.

The Talk: While Dynafit’s sizing typically runs snug for corn-fed Americans, the Mercury keeps fit fluid thanks to an adjustable waist and hem. “A great fit with slim or no baselayer,” our tester said. He found the bottom zip along the rear of the pant leg “great for skinning with buckles fully open.”
