Durable and lightweight, waterproof/breathable Patagonia Super Cell Pants utilize GORE-TEX Paclite fabric to offer full weather protection and reliable performance in any season. The Super Cell Pants' rugged construction and set of features make them work well on the trail or on alpine climbs.
Lightweight, durable and packable, Patagonia Men’s Super Cell Pants provide climbers, hikers and backpackers with confident weather protection. Let’s take a closer look at its fit and features.
The pants are constructed of waterproof, breathable 40D Gore-Tex Paclite fabric. So you have got that great weather protection. You have got fully taped seams. But, again, a measure of breathability to help keep you from overheating during exertion.
As far as the fit is concerned, it is a regular fit. I have got it on over another pair of pants. Certainly you can wear base layers underneath this as well.
There is a slight elasticity at the waist. There is also a tied closure behind the waistband. It has got a snap fly and also a zippered fly. As far as the cuffs are concerned, you do have snap closure as well as zipper, which makes the pants quite easy to get on and off over top of boots, shoes and other pants. Again, kind of closes up nicely to keep wet weather and the debris from getting in.
On the inside leg of the pant there is some bolstered construction. If you were wearing these with crampons, you know, heavier boots, just an area here where wear and tear can occur and Patagonia has bolstered that so the pants are that much more durable and versatile.
There is an articulated design to the pants around the knees, other areas of the pant that allow it to move with you, kind of mirror your natural motion. A lot of rain pants are kind of straight up and down in terms of their cut and they are just not that comfortable to wear and to be active in. That is not the case on the Super Cell.
There are also two pockets I should call out here high on the pants. There are waterproof zippers on those pants, waterproof zippers down below, too.
Weighing just 10.1 ounces and delivering that confident, weather proof protection, Patagonia Men’s Super Cell Pants are an excellent option for hikers, for backpackers, for climbers.
