Sheds rain without soaking you in sweat.
The Mountain Hardwear Men's Plasmic Pant seals out heavy rain when you're hiking or backpacking without leaving you drenched in perspiration, thanks to its Dry.Q Evap technology. The pant's Dry.Q Evap (2.5-layer) membrane keeps outside moisture from dampening your inner layers, and its Evap wicking interior spreads built-up perspiration over a larger surface area to facilitate fast drying. This keeps you from feeling like a swampy, sweaty mess, especially when you're trekking through humid rainforests and damp mountain environments.
Making for easy on and off, the pant's zippered ankle openings allow you to slip these pants on over your shoes. Its partial elastic cuffs have hook-and-loop closures that seal out the rain and dirt, and the pant's articulated knees won't restrict your movement, should you scramble up a scree field or rocky slope.

- Q & A
Good intentions weird fit
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
These pants were too small. The waist was tiny and the leg was huge, and they were ultimately a bit short. The fabric is a bit thin and left me wondering how durable they would be. Ultimately I returned them before I wore them for those reasons. I am usually a big fan of Mountain Hardwear gear, but these just weren't for me.
