Ideal for the likes of the Scottish hills, the lightweight Downpour Plus Pants are the all-mountain waterproof overtrousers for long days hill walking and scrambling when the weather is changeable.
Made using Pertex Shield® 2.5-layer with Dry Touch®, the Downpour Plus Pants are lightweight and packable, so you can carry them with you and put them on quickly when needed.
Featuring elasticated waistband with drawcord and full-length YKK® side zips, the Downpour Plus Pants are easy to throw on when the weather turns and can be worn over crampons and walking boots.

Rab's Downpour Plus Pants are a fully featured waterproof overtrouser. The hydrostatic head of 20,000 is a lot higher than many of our lighter alternatives giving keeping you dryer for longer.
The pants have full length waterproof zips that can be unzipped from the waist band or the ankle. This means they can easily be put on over boots saving you time as you rush to get them on when the rain comes down. This flexibility also enables you to vent if needs be. There is a simple waist adjustment and the ankle cuffs can be cinched in. Like many overtrousers the Downpour Plus has no pockets.
