New for 2014! Lightweight, waterproof and extremely breathable, the Outdoor Research Men's Helium Pants keep you dry and comfortable during downpours, but remove easily when the weather clears thanks to side ankle zippers that don’t require shoe removal. The Men's Foray Pants are ideal for 3-season backpackers, cyclists and climbers due to their versatility and durability.
Pertex Shield+ fabric offers waterproof/breathable protection without compromising compressible durability, which makes stowing the Helium Pants in a pack or clipping them to a climbing harness easy to do. The lower section of the pant leg has a tapered design so extra fabric isn’t flapping around if you are climbing or cycling. This design also allows these pants to fit well under gaiters. And the side ankle zippers allow for ventilation, but also make quick changes over boots or shoes hassle-free.
Other features of the Helium Pants include full seam taping and low profile tabs at the waist to accept accessory suspenders (sold separately). The elastic waistband with drawcord makes adjustments easy and the standard fit of the Helium Pants allows for lightweight base layers or summer weight hiking pants to be worn under them.
Outdoor Research Men's Helium Pants are available in an array of sizes.
Sizes available: Large Black, Medium Black, Small Black, XLarge Black
