Lightweight, waterproof, and extremely breathable, Outdoor Research Women'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.
Pertex Shield+ fabric offers waterproof/breathable protection without compromising compressible durability, which makes stowing the 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 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 allows for lightweight base layers or summer-weight hiking pants to be worn underneath.
