Just you, your pack, your tent–and the great outdoors. Getting back to nature and experiencing the elements are what the Womens Kanuka Ridge Pants were made for. The trousers are quick to put on, and the waterproof 3-layer fabric keeps you dry even in relentless rain. They are made of our environmentally friendly, 100% recycled Texapore Ecosphere fabric. The fabric has a textured, skin-friendly reverse side, so the Womens Kanuka Ridge Pants are also comfortable to wear over your shorts. If you're out on the trail and the weather suddenly turns mean, just pull them on over your boots and trekking trousers. Full-length side zips that extend up to the waistband make this an easy procedure. The side zips make venting easy too. And if gets too draughty, the elasticated draw cords can be cinched in snugly at the ankles. The trousers are also great for biking.
