Functional, lightweight pants
Lightweight, comfortable and easy to use, these pants shrug off rain and snow. The full length zippers work great, and like the description above says, I found them quick to get on or off without removing my boots or shoes. After a six mile mountain hike in moderate to heavy rain (see photo), I did not notice any seepage through the zippers, and everything underneath stayed dry. These pants have two zips per zipper/leg, so if things start to heat up, you can open the top of the pant leg without compromising protection at the pant bottom. XL fits my 6' 2" height and 34x34 pant size. Good for hiking, mountaineering and snowshoeing, wear gaitors for tear protection if using crampons, as the bottom cuffs are not reinforced.
