Rain forecast? Bring it on! When the heavens open you'll have your Womens River Road Pants on in a flash. And because they have zips at the ankles, you won't even have to take your shoes off first. They have a simple, no-frills design and are made of Texapore, so they'll keep you dry even in prolonged rain. The 2.5 layer fabric is also breathable, a feature you will certainly appreciate on warm days or during more energetic activities. And it's 100% recycled too. The Womens River Road Pants are so light and packable you can carry them as back-up when the weather is changeable. You can stash them in their pack bag to save room. They take up very little space in your pack and weigh next to nothing. The cuffs can be cinched in tight, and the special cut allows plenty of mobility even when you're wearing several layers.
