RATING AND REVIEWS

Fantastic rain pants

5

Great rain pants. Super light and packable, these pants kept me completely dry for 7 days on my spring backcountry canoe trip. I only have good things to say about them. I abused them daily, bushwhacking from lake to lake, branches and trees poking at my legs constantly, not one tear, not even a scratch that I can see. I don`t mind at all that they doesn't have side pockets, to me that's just one more seam where water could get in. I wore the Helium II jacket along with the pants, highly recommend that one as well. Will definitely buy another pair if these ones ever fail me. (doubt it!)

ultralight rainpants you can take with you anywhere

These can be packed for any adventure, as a backup, for an unplanned rain event. They are very lightweight and should only be a primary rain pant on the most weight sensitive adventures. That said they can be with you always as they pack down to nothing and weigh very little. They basically go everywhere with me now, work or play.

Love the Helium pant. Great protection in a small, light package. Underfoot tabs are a nice addition.

Great rain pants.

Good rain pants/outer shell. The thighs and butt are a little snug for me, but this is a common problem I have with most pants. I ended up re-ordering a size larger to accommodate wearing the rain pants over a pants and long underwear.

I bought these to be used as my rain pants for a trail and restoration crew in AZ. Fortunately I didn't have to break them out this season while doing rock work because they would have gotten shredded, but I did get to sport them a good bit in town while it was raining/snowing and I was very happy with them. They look good, fit good, breathe, and most importantly keep my legs dry. They are hyper-lightweight and take up almost no space in a pack, and are great just to have on you all the time, just in case.

Totally worth carrying and hopefully not needing them but great protection for when you do. Lightweight and waterproof.

dry and light

I use this product for daily bike commuting. when I purchased it I thought id be able to use it for work, but it is much to lightweight for any backcountry use. Keeps me dry on my rides though! I find the fit in the thighs to be a little tight, but I only notice this when biking, they fit nicely when not in the saddle.

Comfortable and light waterproof pants

Loved the fit. They are lightweight and therefore it's more likely I'll use them! They worked! Some waterproof pants make a lot of noise while walking, but these were pretty quiet. The one thing I did not prepare for is the fact that leg cuffs are quite narrow and so the rain that hit the legs ran down and dripped into my hiking shoes! I'll need to work out how to avoid that, but something worth thinking about when buying.

Light rain protection

These are your ultralight rain pants for hiking trips. These pants are light enough to carry and not use but tuff enough to use in the rain when on a multi-day hike. I felt comfortable sitting and didn't feel like I was going to rip a hole in my pants while cooking a meal. Also, they're not baggy like most rain pants so there is less worry about snags. This was a happy purchase :)

I was wondering what size I should get. I wear 34" waist/ 32" length. I would probably wear hiking pants underneath. Thanks

Tim

I would go with size L.
