What are good water-resistant pants?
Exploration can hit an early "Let's go back" when the rain starts or the sea gets restless, and you don't have proper legwear on. No one wants to walk the trails in heavy, rough pants that are uncomfortable, limit freedom of movement, and can't take on a couple of raindrops.
When the goal is to stay dry, every other feature feels like a luxury. But that doesn't mean you can't improve on your gear. Look for pants made from water-resistant fibers with a durable water-repellent finish. Browse our men's water-resistant pants collection to find flexible, lightweight fabrics with multi-activity comfort.

What pants are waterproof?
Waterproof pants come in two types. The first is softshell pants made of waterproof fabric with spandex or cotton addition. These are usually water-resistant and enriched with water-repellent, either in fiber or as a finish.
The second type is shell pants, such as Jetstream™ Rain Pant. The waterproof pant is constructed from AIRSKAPE™ fabric - lightweight nylon with a hydrophilic membrane that keeps the moisture on the surface for quick-dry properties. Add the ergonomic fit, gusseted crotch, and lots of zippered pockets, and the result is a top performance men's waterproof pant that you can wear as a standalone piece, or over a base layer.
