waterproof pants

Having barely tried it, I already noticed a problem - no pocket, to access the trouser pockets - zippers only on the bottom of the overtrousers, with hiking shoes it's going to be a mess! I don't think I would recommend this kind of article!

The opening of the trouser legs is a bit too small, making it difficult to wear hiking shoes.

The waterproof effect is very good, and it can also be used to keep warm when the weather is cold in the mountains. The only pity is that there are no pockets!

Waterproof but fragile fabric

I wore these pants in a few heavy rains, and they stay dry, the waterproofness is there! A few negative points however: a fly and a pocket would be a minimum. Despite the closures along part of the length of the legs, it remains quite difficult to put on when wearing large hiking shoes. Finally, the fabric turns out to be quite fragile despite its apparent thickness: I have only worn it 5 or 6 times so far, and I have already spotted 3 or 4 micro-tears (between 2 and 4mm in length ) in the lower part of the overtrousers. It repairs well with patches, but I think that reinforcements would be necessary in places prone to friction. I still recommend it for the waterproofing offered.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane ; Lining: 100.0% Polyester


Standard cut. Can be worn over trousers, leggings or shorts. Caution: no hems possible due to the zips on the side of the legs

Main component

3-layer component with membrane


The waterproof rating of a product depends on the following two main criteria: its component and its construction. This product was made with a membrane.This is a kind of very thin plastic film (polyurethane) that makes the component waterproof while remaining breathable. It has the advantage of being flexible, lightweight and breathable.

Layer design

3 layer design: The membrane is glued between the outer and inner fabric. We use it for durable and high performance over-trousers

Waterproof feature of the component

Laboratory tests are conducted to guarantee the waterproof rating of a component. To this end, the resistance of a fabric is measured by the height of a water column in mm that can be supported by the fabric (test based on the JIS 1092 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. This product's component has a 15,000 mm waterproof rating and can withstand the pressure of a 15,000 mm water column. This is also equivalent to 15000 Schmerbers.

Waterproofing of the over-trousers

We conduct laboratory tests that simulate rainfall scenarios in order to guarantee the jacket's waterproof rating. This garment has been inspected in a shower test under 18 cm rain for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a mountain storm.

How to restore the water-repellent properties

A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. The fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Water-repellent properties can be reactivated by tumble drying the trousers for 10 minutes on low temperature or by using a reactivating spray.( Ref: 8551983)

Component breathability

Component breathability is measured by its thermal evaporative resistance (RET). This is its capacity to let water vapour generated by the body during physical activity escape and therefore avoid water accumulating on the skin. The lower the RET, the more breathable the fabric. RET ≤ 6: very breathable fabricRET ≤ 12: breathable fabricRET ≤ 20: not very breathable fabric This product was assessed at 8 RET
