All about this product



Meet the Women's Saltoro Pants from Mountain Equipment, your fully waterproof overtrousers designed to offer both comfort and practicality. These pants are versatile enough to be worn comfortably all day over a pair of baselayers, yet they're lightweight and packable, making them a perfect emergency addition to your pack on days when the weather is uncertain. Their remarkable weight and compact size are primarily due to the use of Gore-Tex Paclite. Paclite not only feels soft to the touch and comfortable against your skin but also doesn't stick when you get wet. It's a 2.5-layer construction that not only provides excellent breathability but also the proven durability of Gore-Tex, even in torrential downpours.


For added protection on the harshest days, the pants feature 3-layer 75D Gore-Tex reinforcements in high-wear areas like the seat, knees, and kick strips. Their design incorporates a gusseted crotch for unrestricted movement and an integrated elasticated waistband with a low-profile drawcord that won't dig in when wearing a harness or hipbelt. Convenience is key with 2-way ¾ length zips on the outside of each leg, allowing you to easily slip them on and off, even when they're damp and muddy or if you're wearing chunky B-rated boots. Additional adjustability comes in the form of Velcro cuffs to protect against water and snow ingress.


The Saltoro pants follow Mountain Equipment's Women's 'Active Fit' block, offering a precise and highly tailored fit when worn over lightweight layers, trimmed down to eliminate unnecessary weight and bulk. They also include articulated knees for a close but unrestrictive fit.
