This is a trick?
I love these pants! They probably would wet in a heavy rain but they repel light rain and wet branches pretty well. They breathe really well which dries them out quickly, and they pack up into a little baseball sized stuff sack. A cool feature of these pants is the velcro tabs on the bottom sections of the legs. The velcro allows you to tighten the pants on the bottom for a tapered MC Hammer kind of look that's functional for running etc. I would NOT want to attempt any bushwhacking in these pants- super thin material and my paclite pants (which are 2x as thick) are already patched in 3 places from winter trekking. The weight of these makes me think something is wrong or I am being tricked but I can't figure out how yet...
