Spectacular rain pants that won't weigh you down
I've never been much for hardshell pants until my recent 5-week trip to Argentine and Chilean Patagonia. I hiked many miles in these pants through downpours and wet brush couldn't be happier. The stretch fabric is incredibly comfortable and I was able to wear these alone without a base layer. Hen the rain stopped and the temps rose, I simply opened the side zips to vent as needed. The Revel pants pack down into the rear pocket with clip-in loop and barely take any room in my pack. Perfect for alpine climbing in places where afternoon thunder showers can strike without warning. They'll be along for the ride next time I'm climbing in the Bugs, Patagonia, the Winds and Tetons. Do not hesitate to pick up a pair. When they die after many years of use i will buy another pair of Revels.
