Red Ledge Rain Gear Pants
The jacket and pants survived their first encounter…
Fabric: TH4/polyurethane coating
Price Paid: $140
The jacket and pants survived their first encounter with moisture -- light mist on a mountain top -- without incident. However, on their next outing, during which it rained steadily for three days, both jacket and pants soaked through within an hour. My Gore-Tex-clad companions remained warm and dry.
To Red Ledge's -- and the Kittery Trading Post's -- credit, I was able to return the "rain gear" for a full refund.
I've since invested in a Gore-Tex ensemble, which has proven itself worthy of the investment several times over.
