Why we made this
Designed for intense mountain pursuits where weight and breathability are key, The Hightail Pertex® Rain Pants protect you from the weather while still allowing you to move fast comfortably.
  • Product Description
    Extremely lightweight, windproof and waterproof, the Hightail Pertex® Rain Pants are part of our Alpine Series. Designed and tested in partnership with the New Zealand Alpine Team, the Hightail has ventured up remote and challenging alpine routes with these elite climbers, helping to keep them protected from the elements, whilst being light to carry and comfortable to wear. Pertex® Shield fabric is fully seam sealed and provides lightweight waterproof protection whilst remaining highly breathable. The elasticated waistband and leg zips make them easy to pull on over your boots, while the articulated patterning around the knee enables a full range of motion for tricky climbing moves or simply stretching your legs on the trail. Please note, due to the lightweight nature of this fabric, these pants are not designed for high abrasion use.

Love these pants, I rarely use rain pants so love that these are very low bulk and perfect for an emergency.

Great product
Bought these as wet-weather pants for golf. They are fantastic! Packable so they take up minimal space in my bag, waterproof, and being windproof are warm enough with just shorts underneath in any temperature I am likely to play in. Long zips for easy on and off over golf shoes (or tramping boots).
The only downside for me was no external pocket, but given the great job they do, I can forgive that.

too light
wore these climbing last month, they ripped to bits within 4 hours of wind and snow, in my opinion they are far too lightweight for climbing

Lesson learnt
Wore these pants on Mera Peak in Nepal and found them super light but still really effective protection against a moderate wind.

Forgot to wear gaiters so crampons tore the lower legs to shreds. Too tired to notice until I got back to base camp.

Would buy again though.

Would you recommend these
for trail running? I wouldn’t expect them to last for years due to their weight, but do you think they could last a season?
Arie M on Apr 18, 2020

These pants are Perfect for trail running. They have been designed with high intensity sports in mind. while they are a light material so not designed for durability, they should last a season. Slim fit in the legs and very compact when packed up. Uses our most breathable fabic at 40,000 g/m^2/24hrs.
