Pack up the Sherpa Adventure Gear Men's Thamel Packable 2.5 Layer Pant when the forecast calls for sunny skies, but you know better. This ultralight pant gives you solid weather protection without excessive weight. When the weatherman's prediction holds true, the Thamel Pant takes up minimum space in your pack, but if that afternoon thunderstorm rolls in, cinch up the waist cord and pull the elastic cuffs over your boots to seal out the moisture.
