If you know how miserable it can be to hunt in soggy, chilly, wind-whipped conditions…then you know how important it is to be prepared for foul weather. Our Guide Gear® Shadow Ridge 2.5-layer Rain Pants deliver the dry comfort you need to stay focused on the hunt — and NOT the weather. They pack into their own pocket, but deploy in seconds for total coverage when you really need it. The 2.5-layer fabric prevents rain from penetrating while simultaneously channeling excess moisture away from your body — and it’s whisper-quiet, so it won’t betray your presence. Think of it as an insurance policy against getting soaked. Throw it in your pack, and you’ll always be ready when the skies turn dark.
2.5-layer gear is your lightest option for packable waterproof protection. 2.5-layer gear combines a 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® Shadow Ridge Packable Rain Pants are actually 2.5 layers, they feel more like one. Plus, they feature taped, sealed seams that prevent moisture from sneaking in, even during a soaking rain.
Our Shadow Ridge Pants feature two 100% waterproof zip hand pockets 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 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.
