Everything you love about our Nuker jacket now in pants. The waterproof breathable performance of NeoShell® protects from the elements, is quiet, and packs down well. The 7/8 side zips make transitions easy, and the zippered fly allows for functional use over a harness. A slim lower leg profile helps reduce catching when wearing crampons and the elastic belt allows for adjustability.

General care for all garments: Machine wash cold with mild detergent, tumble dry medium, do not bleach, do not dry clean, 

and do not use fabric softener.

Additional care for waterproof garments: Machine wash cold with detergent formulated for technical clothing. Tumble dry medium, do not bleach, do not dry clean, and do not use fabric softener. As needed, tumble dry medium to refresh DWR or treat with spray application such as ReviveX. Ensure down insulation is completely dry before removing from the dryer. If needed, tumble dry down garments with clean tennis balls to restore loft. 


Our products have been designed for climbers and outdoor users to be worn as a system of layering, and each piece has been fit for optimal performance. In general, our products have a slim, athletic cut and a little extra length. Our layers intentionally fit over each other. If you are between sizes, or prefer more room in your garment, we recommend you choose the larger size. 


Athletic Fit: A slimmer fit designed for functional movement, and can be layered over base layers and light midlayers.

Relaxed Fit: The roomiest of our fit styles that allows for layering of multiple/heavier technical layers underneath.

Awesome Pants!!

These pants are amazing. When I got them, I thought they would be a typical "hard-shell" and was okay with that. They were so much more! They are breathable and flexible but still as bomber, waterproof, and weatherproof as other materials. Highly recommend!

Great breathability, lightweight, comfortable, stylish soft shell pants

I love the great breathability, slim fit, weight, look and feel of these NeoShell Nuker pants (M - I'm 31wx30L). They're very comfortable with good freedom of movement. With a base layer and a mid-weight layer, I stay very dry going up Mt. Hood on skins at more than 1000’ per hour. I haven’t used them in rain, but they do a great job of shedding snow and blocking wind. The 7/8 length waterproof side zips are nice but seem a little less robust than those on my other shells. Time will tell. I prefer full side zip when using crampons but I can see leaving these pants on all day, so that may not matter much.

The integrated belt is low profile and does its job. It's easy to attach but the loops the hook slides though are very flexible and can catch and be challenging to remove in an alpine environment with gloves and without looking. The design could be improved by using stiffer material for the loops. The snap closure at the top of the fly is robust and required a lot of force to open initially, but it appears to unsnap a little more easily after several days of use.

The (M) pants are narrow at the cuffs and barely fit around my 27.5 Dynafit Hoji Free AT boots, which are pretty slim as alpine touring boots go. I wouldn't expect to be able to close the side zips over most AT boots. Crampon patches and a little more room in the cuff would be nice.

These pants have worked very well so far and have been a joy to use. All-in-all, this is a great pair of soft-shell pants.

Nuker Pants

Soft, light, quiet, full zip, and I hardly noticed they were on. Wore them snowshoeing in the snow/rain over a base layer and never took them off after I got to the car. Felt totally dry underneath. Wore them to dinner and they felt like regular pants. I’m from the NW so they will get lots of use. I wear 34x32 and large is perfect. Only wore them twice now so I can’t speak to durability, but the alpine cut doesn’t leave excess fabric flapping around which tends to snag on things. Neoshell is perfect for pants. So far I love everything that Bight has made.

Breaths well

I was a bit skeptical of NeoShell being all that breathable, but it really is. Had a really great day skiing in these and the NeoShell Nuker Jacket. Both performed flawlessly.

Great Pants

Great product so far, I am tall, large is a tad short but really like the pants, can tell they were designed by people who actually use them. Great job guys!
