For solid, durable and protective waterproof pants the Aspire bit the description. Lightweight and packable, they are versatile enough to stow in your pack for emergencies or wear all day when the weather is poor.
Outdoor Research says:
Waterproof, breathable, and lightweight, the GORE-TEX® Aspire Jacket and Pants have been winning awards for years for their dependable rain protection and feature-packed details. This season, there's even more to celebrate as we switch to an all-new GORE-TEX® fabric that eliminates PFCs of environmental concern in order to preserve the mountains, waterways, and trails you love to explore. Using a PFC(EC)-Free waterproof solution is just one step towards improving our company's sustainability footprint, and enabling the eco-friendliness of your outdoor adventures.
Outdoor Research's Womens Aspire are a lightweight, waterproof pant that's versatile, comfortable and highly effective in bad weather. It utilizes Gore-Tex's renowned Paclite fabric to create a fully waterproof and highly breathable set of pants with YKK AquaGuard zips and storm flaps for extra protection. The updated Gore-Tex fabric is more eco-friendly with less impact made on the environment. It's still very durable thanks to the tough outer face fabric which feels softer and moves quieter than other shell pants on the market.
These pants are designed to be comfortable and practical. With long, easy access 3/4 length zips up the sides you can easily put the on and take them off without having to remove your boots. The fit has a gusseted crotch and articulated knees so they stay comfortable and move with you when you're walking, even when it gets steep and tricky. There's a back pocket that doubles as a stuff sack for when they need to be stored in your pack.
