The MontBell Men's Thunderhead Pants include the weather protection of waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Pro fabric while still maintaining a seriously low 7.2oz weight. Though MontBell designed these ultralight rain pants for hiking and backpacking, it also made them tough enough for a spring mountaineering trip. Knee-length zippers help you get these pants on over your trail shoes when you need quick protection from the weather, so you don't have to strip down every time you add or lose a layer.
