The North Face Slasher Cargo Pant Review
Pant Size: M
Matt’s Specs: Sizing Info
Waterproofing and Breathability: The North Face Slasher Cargo pant is made with a 2-layer Hyvent fabric. Hyvent 2-L is a good, but not great waterproof material that will provide a moderate amount of wet weather protection. It’s pretty standard in The North Face’s lower ticket items, but does a pretty solid job for the price range. If you ski in a really wet location and see a lot of rain, you’ll probably want to go up to a Hyvent Alpha, or Gore-Tex North Face jacket. Breathability of Hyvent is on the lower end, but really should be fine for most casual resort skiers.
Fit: The North Face Slasher Cargo pant has a loose relaxed fit, which feels true to size. I personally prefer a more tailored fit, but the Slasher Cargo is fine for those who like the loose freestyle fit. It gives you plenty of room underneath for layering, and plenty of mobility for pulling off tricks in the park.
Warmth: The North Face Slasher Cargo pant is okay for mild days on the mountain, but without insulation it’s not going to be great for cold days. Still, you could put a warm base layer underneath and add some extra insulation and warmth. These would be fine for those skiers who don’t need a ton of warmth, or for those who don’t mind layering underneath when it is cold.
Features: There are a ton of pockets on The North Face Slasher Cargo pant. I love having pockets, so I really like that the Slasher has so many. The Slasher Cargo also has inner thigh vents with mesh, adjustable waist tabs, reinforced cuffs, and gripper elastic gaiters.
Bottom Line: The North Face Slasher Cargo pant is a pretty standard entry level pant that is geared towards the casual freestyle skier. It has a relaxed fit, and just enough tech to get you on the mountain.
