Before you walk down to the crossroads to trade your soul for a pair of pants that will offer tough protection during the hike to the put-in and serious waterproof performance in the water, save yourself a soul by pulling the trigger on the Immersion Research Devil's Club Pants.Named after the devil's club plant that lines a lot of of rivers in the Northwest, these pants were designed and built to take a beating in and out of the water, so paddlers can wear them with confidence as they walk into a remote river and still stay dry in the water. As far as materials go, the Devil's Club is composed of a tough nylon taslan shell with durable and breathable three-layer construction and fully sealed seams. A high back neoprene waistband offers extra protection, and the neoprene ankle gaskets form a highly water-resistant seal. Immersion Research even threw in a zippered front pocket where small pieces gear can be stashed during nasty portages or demanding multi-day adventures.
IR Men's Devil's Club Pants - The Men's Devil's Club Pants by IR are expedition-weight paddling pants that are built to take the worst conditions. Made with a proprietary three layer waterproof and breathable technology, they are custom made for the rigors of paddlesports. They have a 100% nylon shell (166 gm/sq meter), and a heavy duty, hard wearing taslan (231 gm/sq meter) in high wear areas. Other features include a low profile snap front waist with velcro fly, a high 3mm neoprene back, neoprene semi dry ankle gaskets and they are fully seam sealed. If you tend to spend most of your time playing on the water, make sure you have the IR Men's Devil's Club Pants.
