Free Shipping. GoLite Men's Whim Pants (Spring 2008) The Men's Whim Pants by GoLite are a 4 oz ultra-lite wonder that offers wind and light rain protection plus great durability for the weight! Constructed of WispUltra, a 98% polyester / 2% carbon fabric with a Super-DWR coating, these wind pants are highly breathable and pack small into the back pocket, so there's never a reason to leave them behind.
Pull out your compact GoLite Men's Whim Pants when the cloud you've been watching finally starts pouring rain five miles from the trailhead. These GoLite pants are made of highly water resistant DWR-coated WispUltra nylon, and are so packable that they stuff into their own back pocket to result in a package smaller than your hand. Best of all, these minimalist rain pants for hiking, running, and backpacking weight only 4oz, so you never have an excuse to leave them in the car.
