Cold, wet and miserable is no way to spend time in the Great Outdoors. For protection in a pinch, turn to the 100% waterproof/breathable comfort of our 2.5 Solid Pants. They pack into their own pocket and deploy in seconds for total coverage when you really need it. The 2.5-layer fabric keeps rain from getting in while also venting excess moisture — so you stay cool and dry. Think of them as an insurance policy against getting soaked. Throw 'em in your pack, and you’ll always be ready when the skies turn dark.
Your lightest option for packable waterproof protection. 2.5-layer gear combines 92/8 nylon/spandex face fabric with a waterproof/breathable membrane and protective inner coating (that’s the .5 layer) that provides next-to-skin comfort without the need for a full inner lining. So while our Guide Gear® Packable Rain Pants are actually 2.5 layers, they feel more like one. In addition to multiple-layer construction, 2.5 gear also features taped, sealed seams for added protection against water seeping in.
Our 2.5 Solid Pants feature two 100% waterproof zip hand pockets and back pocket to keep electronics and other sensitive stuff dry. The elastic drawcord hem lets you cinch them up when you need the extra protection, and two knee-high leg zippers with adjustable hook-and-loop cuffs make it easy to put them on in a hurry. And best of all, they pack neatly into their own back pocket for easy portability in a day pack or glove box.
