Our Dreadnought HD’s have been around a while now and have definitely developed something of an underground cult following due to their surprising comfort, superior breathability and absolutely incomparable durability. While they have become the ski pant of choice for those who demand the ultimate in burliness, you’ll also find them exceeding the expectations of those working in demanding conditions around the globe.

The HD’s were born of the notion that working/living/playing in tough environments (especially cold ones) didn't need to mean that you had to compromise comfort or durability. Originally designed for telemark skiing by Mark Schafer, these have been refined and redesigned over the years.

Constructed from our Premium 12oz C-Canvas, these will outlast any other trouser - full stop. Our usual philosophy of making “gear that wear in not out” applies – these will get better and better with age. These are seriously heavy duty yet very warm and comfortable. However, if you find yourself spending more time in slush than fresh powder then our Lifties might be a better bet.

  • Super durable and highly wearable 12oz C-Canvas to help when you are looking down the barrel of a full season with a questionable amount of cash
  • High back waist design for good overlap/warmth
  • Pre-bent leg to keep movement free when it's all happening fast
  • Webbing cinch cuffs for locking the snow out
  • 2 handy front zip pockets for your lip stuff/cash etc
  • Construction backed by a lifetime warranty on materials and workmanship


  • Colour: Henry Ford Black
  • Weight: 1210grams (Medium)
  • Fabrics: C-Canvas, C-600n6


  • Our canvas has a water resistant coating which can shift and discolour through the initial break in period
  • Use mild detergent or pure soap (preferably one that's nice to the environment)
  • For best results handwash until the garment is broken in. Machine washing is fine after this
  • Drip dry without creases (it won't take long as the polyester in the fabric doesn't hold much water)
  • Close zips while washing (they'll last longer)
  • If you get poked by a probe after avvy burial, you'll get a bruise but the burly canvas fabric will just laugh it off (even if you don't).  If you do somehow manage to hole it though, send it back and we'll patch it. Good luck trying!
  • If you are still not sure, give us a call or flick us an email


Chipper!Review by Simon
Took these powder hunting in Japan, can't recommend them highly enough. Warm, tough and cut well to work with your movements while skiing and other ski gear. There's no cuff around the inside of the ankle which I was worried would mean I'd get snow down my boot but this was never a problem, bone dry all day everyday. (Posted on 3/02/19)
