    For rainy day forays.

    A chance of rain isn't a deterrent when you have the Outdoor Research Men's Foray Pants in your pack. The Gore-Tex Paclite 2L membrane makes them super lightweight and exceptionally packable, and the pocket turns into a stuff sack so you never have an excuse to leave them behind. If the weather goes from sunny to rainy in an instant, the 3/4-length side zippers make it easy to slide them on without fully undressing on the trail, and you won't feel restricted when you're striding along in the rain thanks to the articulated knees and gusseted crotch.

    • A rain pant so packable it belongs on all adventures
    • Gore-Tex Paclite offers lightweight protection
    • 3/4-length side zippers for easy on and off
    • Pocket turns into a stuff sack for seamless packability
    • Gusseted crotch and articulated knees keep you mobile on the trail
    • Item #ODR00RK

    First review here.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 160lbs

    These are great pants. The fabric's thin, but they're quite compact. The elastic cuffs do fit around my Nepal Cube mountaineering boots, and they have loops for tying them down (inconvenient to use, but they work). Honestly, if you want some light pants for snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, or mountaineering, make sure you really need these and not the Marmot Precip full zip. They’re half the price (easy to find for crazy cheap), can easily go on while wearing snowshoes/crampons, and they’re waterproof. The waterproof zips and Gore-tex one these are comforting but ask yourself if it’s worth $100 more. I mainly got these for heavy rain while backpacking, and I’m glad I got them: I like the WP zips and they fit over boots and they do BARELY fit over crampons (you have to be super careful and it's nerve wracking, but they do fit.) I think these are best for backpacking.

    Love these pants

      Wore these pants every day as a guide in SE Alaska. They got beat, bushwhacking, kayaking, sea-spray, but after getting washed they don’t show a sign of wear. My only gripe is their cut is a little tight when you’re high stepping, but it never was an issue hiking. Lightweight and and easy to put on over boots.

      ...is my go-to gear for the big mountains. These full zip water proof gore-tex pants are extremely durable and reliable in wet conditions. Great gear to have while climbing the Cascade Mountains. Fit nicely over climbing pants and gaiter's. Highly recommend !

      Review from a rad customer of mine: "The Foray Pants have performed great, I tried them out in torrential downpours and I stayed completely dry. In the fall, I wore them driving on the lake in a boat and they kept all rain and wind from penetrating, keeping me warm and dry. The 3/4 side zips are a convenient feature that I appreciate and it makes putting them on and taking them off fast and quick. I also like how light they are but the material is not cheaply made by any means, it feels durable between the fingers. The waist cinch cord works as expected keeping the pant snug to the waist and the ankle stretch material is large enough to wrap around a large winter boot. I expect to have them performing at a high level for years to come."

      Awesome rain pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'8"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      Used in high altitude desert and mountains as well as the humid hills in ohio. Performed well in both places and while hiking. Pack up very well into its own pocket and are very convenient. Not super loud either when walking. Definitey thinking about getting the matching jacket as well to replace my current goretex jacket

      Balanced

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      Balance of weather resistance, breathability, and ease-of-use oriented features, while still checking in at a below average weight.

      Bomber construction, fantastic freedom of movement, and top-notch storm worthiness

      Best pair of rain pants I've owned

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 190lbs

      Light weight. Well articulated for comfortable movement. I climbed over fallen firs and scrambled over moss-covered rocks along the Olympic Peninsula. These pants held up over 5 days of near constant rain. They even helped to keep mud out of my boots when I sunk into almost-knee high mud! The snap ends really helped keep the ankle cuffs over my boots. They dry pretty fast too. The zippers are really easy to use and they dump heat well. I highly recommend these pants. The jacket is another story...

      good, but long

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Its a nice pair of pants and the long zippers up the sides are great. I got a large for my waist size but they are a bit on the long side. I'm 5'10'' and need about two inches off the bottom. otherwise I am satisfied.

      Great

      • Fit: True to size

      I don't see why anyone would spend the normal $400 on goretex mountaineering pants when these are available. The zippers allow a ton of ventilation, but i've never needed it. They breath great. You can wear them all day in snow and no leakage. They're lite and show zero signs of wear after a ton of use. They move great on your legs while going up steep mountain faces. What would more would you want?

      nice pant

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: xxl
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 230lbs

      These pants were purchased for a wet icy adventure and held up extremely well. Getting in and out of a zodiac, hiking, and extra abuse didn't affect the material or compromise the waterproof quality. Great waterproof outer pant.

      great pants

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 5'11"

      pants are great for pulling on over you current hiking clothes. They have nice side zips that are long and let you vent out while staying dry from the rain. material is the same as the jacket. I wear around a 34 and got the large. they are slim fitting.

      OR Foray Pants

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I both the pants as well as the jacket. Amazing gear from OR as always! Did an 8 day Mt. Kilimanjaro trek and both performed extremely well.

      The Good and Bad

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small

      A lightweight, "Paclite Gore-Pex" rain pant with 1/2 to 3/4 side zips for easy of getting on and off with boots on. These were what I wanted use on long day hikes and backpack trips. The Sizing was a little weird for me . Im 6ft 170lbs and 33inch waist. The M fit the best if not a tad on the athletic fitting side (which I prefer). Large was too big in waist, I had to cinch the waist band all the way; i had hiking pants on during the fitting; and the length of the legs was too long, and I was worried about rubbing during hiking. I went with the Medium and still feel they are just a tad small but not a big problem. The real problem is these started to wet out on the first use in the backcountry, and by the second day they were a fail after just 2 hours in the rain. Wet-out was down the entire upper front half of the pant and the lower foot of the pants. The breathability was now compromised, and i started to get nice and moist on the inside of the pant. I also discovered that they are not very durable, as sitting down for one meal I already had a small hole in the seat, lucky my upper shell shielded the hole from rain. The wet out may just be a OR/gore-tex defect/warranty issue, and may not reflect on all of these pants. To have these kind of problems on the first use of these pants is not what I expected. Unfortunately I will have to go to gore-tex or OR for return as I purchased these in winter and have not used them until summer so BC.com will not accept the return. OR makes some great gear but these did meet my expectations. Hope these work better for others.

      Great pants to always carry in your pack

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      I like them. It is enough small to carry it everywhere and seems to be tough enough for survive a few branches in the path. I tried it in bicycle and hiking and they are easy to put on and off if there is a sudden rain. The breathability is good.

      Trip up Baker

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought these for a trip up Mt. Baker expecting some rain but ended up not getting any. They were still great pants for the wet, sloppy snow and they barely took up any space in my pack. Certainly a great piece to bring along on any trip.

      Runs slightly small

        These pants are nice. The Gore-Tex Paclite material is awesome. I am 5'10''165lbs, and ordered a medium. They are a little snug in the waist, especially going on over softshell pants. May want to size up, but overall a great shell pant for a great price.
