If it rains you'll have Jack Wolfskin's waterproof overtrousers on in a flash. And because the Womens Cloudburst Pants have zips at the ankles, you can even leave your shoes on. These overtrousers are made of proprietary 2.5 layer Texapore Ripstop fabric. This makes them light and packable so they're easy to stash in your hiking pack. The detailing of the Cloudburst is focused on the essentials. The ankle hem can be cinched in tight and the special cut allows plenty of mobility, even when wearing several layers.
