Men's Mountain Backpacking Rain Over Pants Trek 700
Best compromise between resistance and lightness
Men's Mountain Backpacking Rain Over Pants Trek 700 designed for trekkers in the mountains over several days (e.g. rockies).
Waterproof top layer pants using the combination of a lightweight, breathable fabric and a sturdy fabric to help protect you from the elements.
Combination of 2 fabrics resistant to 10,000 mm water pressure after 5 washes
The hybrid construction reduces the weight to 395 g in size L.
Use of a robust fabric (147 g/m²; 70 denier) on the areas to be protected.
Easy to put on / take off
Full length side openings with waterproof double-slider zippers
The two-slider side zipper helps regulate body temperature.
Freedom of movement
Preformed knees. Half elastic waistband adjustable by drawstring and toggle.
RET < 8 for the lightest fabric; RET < 12 for the most resistant fabric
Combination of a strong and protective fabric (147 g/m²; 70 denier) on areas to be protected from friction (knees, lower leg, buttocks) and a light and breathable fabric (109 g/m²; 20 denier) elsewhere.
Use of a waterproof zipper with a double slider to both regulate body temperature and easily put the pants on without the need to remove shoes.
Snaps at the waist and ankles.
Bottom of pants leg has an elastic strip with silicone inside to improve the grip on the shoe.
Hook at bottom of pants leg to attach to the laces of the shoe to prevent the top layer pants from riding up while walking.
Water resistance of the fabric
The resistance of a fabric is measured using water pressure expressed in water column mm (test based on ISO 811). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. A component with a waterproof rating of 2,000 mm is able to resist the pressure exerted by 2,000 mm of water (roughly equivalent to a 2-hour rain shower).
With a water resistance greater than 10,000 mm, the TREK 700 top layer pants provide an extremely high degree of water resistance.
Water resistance of the top layer pants
The water resistance of the top layer pants was tested under rainfall of 450 Liters of water/m²/hour for 4 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a thunderstorm in the mountains.
Slightly fitted cut to reduce excess material and weight.
Choose your usual size or a size above if you are wearing them over very thick pants.
Inside leg length: 86.6 cm in size 44 (L)
Width of pants hem: 20.1 cm in size 44 (L)
Breathability of the fabric
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on Standard ISO 11092). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more the water vapour generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability
It's considered that if:
* RET < 9 = very breathable fabric
* 9 < RET < 12 = breathable fabric
Here are the breathability values of the Trek 700 top layer pants:
RET < 8 for the lightest fabric
RET < 12 for the most resistant fabric
Outer fabric : 100.0% Polyester\r\nMain fabric : 100.0% Polyamide\r\nYoke : 100.0% Polyamide
