ZPacks™  Waterproof Breathable Cuben Fiber Rain Pants
 

Description:

Constructed from 1.42 oz/sqyd Waterproof Breathable Cuben Fiber material! The fabric is a three layer laminate with high strength Dyneema fibers sandwiched between eVent waterproof breathable membranes. In our testing the strength, waterproofness, and breathability have all proved to be very good. The jackets are breathable enough to sleep in or hike in if it is cold out without getting clammy.

New August 2013- The material has been updated with a micro-checkered pattern in the eVent membrane for even better breathability!

The material is thick enough to withstand light brush, and can be easily patched with tape.

  • Adjustable elastic draw cords at the waist and the ankles.
     
  • Wide ankles can fit over shoes without removing them.
     
  • No pockets, no zippers, no unnecessary weight.
     
  • Packs up small. Roll the pants up and secure them with the waist elastic. No stuff sack necessary.
     
  • Lightest 3 layer waterproof breathable pants in the world?
     
  • Combine these pants with a matching Jacket for a super light rain suit!
     
  • 1 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship on all ZPacks gear.
