Harbor no illusions when your fleet-footed adventure run transitions into a high alpine scramble, the weather can still catch you. But dont think twice, its all right the Houdini Pants slip on easily to block wind so you can focus on moving forward. Weighing just three ounces, their deceptively strong 100% nylon ripstop fabric has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish that sheds light rain. The snap closures on the lower cuffs have been updated, now with a more generous opening for easier on/off over shoes, and with an inside snap to create a better ankle seal. Reflective logos above left knee and on the rear pocket get you noticed in the dark, and when the winds recede, just stuff the pants back into their own zippered rear pocket (with a reinforced carabiner clip loop).
