MB Rain Trekker Pant in stuff sack v. Nalgene bottle
Ultimate Rain Protection!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I already love these. The day they showed up at my doorstep was the day I biked through rains that ended up flooding parts of Colorado. I stayed completely dry. I've used them about 10 times (mostly biking through town but twice on the trail) and I can't say enough good about these - they are extremely waterproof and very breathable. The leg zippers are really nice because I can slip these on without having to take off my shoes. The fabric feels durable and I can tell these pants will last for years to come. It comes with a cool little stuff sack too. Some people don't like the fact that these don't have pockets, but basically every rain jacket out there has pockets so it's not a big deal. Lastly, the fit is spot on. It's not like the other super baggy rain pants that I have owned in the past; it doesn't act like a sail when the winds pick up.
If I wanted to wear these over a hiking...
If I wanted to wear these over a hiking pant, and my waist fits comfortably into 28inW pant, would I want to get a small or a medium size?
James - I'd go for a Small for sure. The waist on these is pretty stretchy and will give you room for a hiking pant underneath, but the Medium is going to take quite a bit of volume in order to stay up.
Much obliged for your response. Now if I may be so bold, I have a second question to pose with regard to this rant pant: would it be a better investment of monies to buy these, or the relatively cheaper Marmot Pre-Cip Rain Pant?
These pants have a 25,000 mm waterproof rating compared with only 15,000 on the PreCip. The PreCip will keep you dry for a while in moderate to heavy rain, but for multi day treks in wet conditions Montbell is the way to go.
