The Tupilak Pants are some of the gnarliest salopettes in existence. The main bulk of the fabric is made from a super tough, thick 80D nylon which shrugs off snow, protects you from sharp ice and resists abrasion during mountainous activities. Backing up this durable fabric are Dyneema reinforced patches at the ankle to deal with crampon strikes and slipped footwork. 

Underneath this bombproof outer fabric is a Gore-Tex Pro membrane, arguably the longest lasting and most reliable waterproof membrane available. Gore-Tex Pro is not only longer lasting than standard Gore-Tex but also more breathable, allowing more sweat to escape without sacrificing water resistancy. 

An Alpine fit with articulated knees improves mobility, reduces rubbing and allows further layers to be added underneath whilst remaining slim enough to wear on their own. Full length zips are then added to allow you to escape quickly and easily, while removable gaiters keep the snow where it's supposed to be. 

  • Zip out internal snow gaiters
  • Fully adjustable braces
  • Dyneema reinforced kick strips
  • 2-way YKK fly zip
  • Bonded ice screw protection overlay
  • Alpine fit with articulated knees
  • Storm construction techniques
  • 3-layer Gore-Tex Pro 80D
Care & Advice

Care and maintenance

To keep your outdoor clothing and equipment in tip top condition and performing to its maximum we recommend the use of Nikwax products. We have been using Nikwax products since day one (26th March 1986) and have found them to be totally reliable, dependable and effective. Today’s Nikwax treatments contain environmentally friendly elastic water-repellent polymers that bond to fabric fibres, leaving the spaces between open and breathable. These stretchy polymers are able to stretch and move with the fabric so they stay put for longer and work better.

Nikwax treatments will not change the look or feel of the fabric and they are all water based, environmentally safe, non-flammable and contain no nasty Fluorocarbons. Nikwax products can be used to clean, re-proof and revitalise all your outdoor technical clothing and equipment.

Waterproof breathable clothing has a durable water-repellent (DWR) finish applied to the face fabric during the manufacturing process. The DWR forces water to bead up and roll off the surface therefore preventing the fabric from absorbing moisture. If the outside of your jacket is soaked in a layer of cold water, the warm damp air within can’t escape and will condense on the inside. This makes the jacket feel cold clammy and can make you think that it’s leaking. The DWR finish is not permanent and needs to be maintained and revitalised to optimise performance.

This three layer waterproof jacket should be cleaned regularly with Nikwax Tech Wash; I wash my jacket about once a month, or more often if it gets really filthy. Regular washing with Tech Wash will maintain the DWR for longer and remove salts and oils that can contaminate the fabric, and it will keep your lovely jacket clean and smelling fresh. Washing can be done in a machine according to the manufacturers care guidelines (on the internal label). First clean out any detergent and conditioner residue from the machine dispenser and then add the required amount of Tech Wash and away you go. Hand washing is also suitable but be sure to rinse the garment well.

When you notice that rain/water is no longer beading up and rolling off it’s time to re-proof. Nikwax TX Direct will re-instate a long lasting DWR to completely rejuvenate your jacket. Re-proofing can also be done in the machine once a garment has been washed. Just add the TX-Direct and use the same programme you used for washing. You can also use the spray-on product on a damp garment that has just been washed.

You wouldn’t buy a Ferrari and never have it serviced, so make sure you regularly wash and re-proof your quality kit.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
