Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Whether you're postholing through spring slush or front-pointing on alpine firn, Celestial Pants from Outdoor Research deliver seam-taped waterproof/breathable performance. GORE-TEX protection keeps you dry inside and out no matter how wet the weather.

- Mountain Gear refers to the men's version

These Celestial rain pants from Outdoor Research offer full-on waterproof, breathable protection in a small, lightweight package. Gore-Tex® PacLite® fabric is specifically engineered to be light, packable and more breathable than other Gore-Tex fabrics. Gore-Tex® Paclite® membrane minimizes weight and bulk by utilizing an oil-hating protective interior coating rather than a separate lining. Pants are fully seam taped to protect in all conditions. Water-resistant cuff zippers ease dressing while wearing boots or crampons. Instep lace loops attach pants securely to footwear. Elastic waist with a toggled shockcord secures the fit. Closeout.

- REI refers to the men's version

Made from lightweight and breathable waterproof Gore-Tex PacLite fabric, the Outdoor Research Celestial Pant is an excellent packable rain pant for hiking, trekking and light climbing. The 15-denier PacLite fabric compresses well for easy packing and all seams are taped for optimal weather protection. It's important to emphasize that the lightweight design of the Outdoor Research Celestial Pant emphasizes portability, but this 7.8-oz. pant (in large size) doesn't have the reinforced knees and seat found in abrasion-resistant climbing pants. Outdoor Research did add extra articulation through the knees in the Celestial Pant to enhance the range of motion, and you'll also find convenient below-the-knee side zippers for easy removal over your hiking and backpacking boots. If going light is just as important as staying dry, the Outdoor Research Celestial Pant should be in your future backcountry adventures.

- Altrec Outdoors refers to the men's version

The Outdoor Research Men's Celestial Pants are ideal for climbers, hikers, and backcountry skiers who value weight savings as much as weather protection. The Celestial pants weigh only 7.8oz (large size) thanks to their 15D Gore-Tex PacLite waterproof breathable fabric. These fully seam-taped Outdoor Research pants have below-the-knee side zips to allow easy layering over boots, and loops for instep laces secure the legs to eliminate the need for gaiters.
