Memories are made of adventures that don’t go as planned. With the right gear (and some time), they might even become good memories. From shoulder-season sleet to snow falling in sloppy sheets, the simple yet robust Cloud Ridge Pants balance reliable H2No(R) Performance Standard waterproof/breathable protection with 100% recycled polyester face fabric. Whether worn next to skin or with underlayers, they deliver 3-layer waterproof/breathable protection and all-day comfort in wet conditions. The partially elasticized waist secures with a snap and zip fly, an internal drawcord tunes the fit, and articulated knees offer the mobility you want for those “it seemed like a good idea at the time” plans. Water-resistant side zips, which double as vents, extend from cuff to thigh for easy pull-on over boots. The cuffs adjust with a two-setting snap-tab closure and the whole package fits in a lightweight stuffsack with clip-in loop. With a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
