Staggeringly light at only 2.4 oz., these pants promise to protect from a fair amount of rain and plently of wind.
I suspect that they would also be a better mozzie barrier than my current pants.
I wish they made them in lighter colors to help keep the bugs away – but it's hard to complain at this weight.
Not sure these would stand up to a morning of bushwacking, but I usually only wear pants at night to keep bugs out and an extra layer of warmth.
Available from prolite gear for $68.
You said ‘I wish they made them in lighter colors to help keep the bugs away’.
Is this really true? I also thought that yellow was insect heaven!
ha. apparently… but i have no idea if its true.
I can only imagine they would be so thin that the mosquitoes would eat right thru them.
they hold up pretty well to mozzy bites…
