Mountain Equipment says:
Lightweight, protective and well-fitting waterproof trousers with hybrid GORE-TEX construction for trekking and backpacking.
GORE-TEX 75D and GORE-TEX PACLITE® fabric are combined to balance comfort and protection against a small pack size for mixed weather days high in the mountains. Our trim Active fit ensures there’s no excess fabric to catch the wind on exposed ridgelines and ¾ length zips allow quick changes with boots on.
Mountain Equipment's Saltoro Gore-Tex Pant are a durable and packable waterproof over trouser with the Gore-Tex seal of quality. The subtle hybrid construction uses 3 layer 75 Denier reinforcements in areas of greater wear with lightweight 2.5 layer Paclite elsewhere. The 2 way zips are virtually full length making it easy to gets the pants on and off over boots.
The 2 way feature is great for venting for when you are working hard. A simple velcro adjustment on the ankles enables you to cinch in the trousers as required. The waistband is elasticated with single drawcord to tighten if necessary to prevent the pants riding up or down.
