The best lightweight, affordable, tough 3-layer pants ever. Buy one size up instead of complaining about moving-fit problems like a city slicker.


  • Lightweight
  • Steaming breathability
  • Toughness
  • Simplicit
  • Dark forest green color


  • Little if any for someone who knows what to do with them and how to size

I had two pairs of these over years and made snow with both of them (a brutal job on equipment). Neither of them ever leaked and any clown who ever says their products leak is without any experience. These were tough and comfortable to wear all the time like any good 3-layer Gore tex but with a tough taslan shell which is decent in brush and the tighter fabric face beads water off much better than other cheesy thin nylons.

These are for a New England or Pacific Northwest backpacker or woodsman who actually knows what real rain is and how to use rain gear in it without getting wet from being sweat soaked or letting it run in the top of the clothes. If you're not doing those rookie moves, there is no excuse to say a bad word about these pants.

Like I said, buy one size up to leave room in the knee and crotch for movement and clothes. Just cinch the drawcord up, and enjoy New England's best kept secret...Log House Designs in Chattham, with an outlet store and now expanding into a website and net sales.

Very disapointed. I wore these pants for about 15…

Very disapointed. I wore these pants for about 15 minutes in the rain and my legs got wet. These are supposed to be Gore-Tex pants tested for extreme wet weather. I am glad I was not in a situation where I was really depending on these pants. What a waste of money.
