      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Baselayer-with Crotch Zip-Please reccomend

Recommended Posts

Could someone please reccomend a good baselayer that has the oh so wonderful crotch zip. Ive looked and Mec has a nice pair made of power dry polartech, but they also charge 19 for shipping to US. Any other brands have this feathure?

Iv actually already got a similar suit, but I wanna put something under it. The zippers that run up and down the entire legs are kinda cold on the skin. What I have is actually a military issue, same powerstretch and all..Ill use it as an insulating layer.

I've got long underware pants from MEC that I use with the Dead bird siloppette. I like them. I have both the thin long underware and the thicker weight. They use zippers. Pattagonia had a opening on one of their old styles but is not made anymore. Back then I went with MEC because the pattagooch just has so much extra cloth.

i've done the same searching to fit my arc bibs. Arcteryx has the crotch zip available(men's too) in wool, and maybe synthetic, but only in black and not for xl. the problem is that no one has them in stock and you'll have to wait.

 

as for the MEC crotchzip, i have them and like them. the zipper could use a little flap to prevent chaffing but i'll let you work that out. considering exchange rate,shipping and price vs. ARC, they are still a good deal. and like i also did, you can get both the med. and expedition weight to have the option.

Decided to forgo the crotch zip. Would have been nice under the powerstretch suit, but the reason for me to even use a base under it is to keep the cold zippers on the suit from gettin on me. The last thing I want is a zipper rubbin my kahonas. Thanks@
