Those who do not let weather constrain their outdoor adventures need outstanding rain pants to get them through soggy conditions. Lightweight and waterproof exterior shells have plenty of room for layering over warm baselayers in cold conditions. On their own, they also have enough breathability to prevent overheating during wet but warm weather. Top-of-the-line designs include multitudinous features, such as fully sealed seams, zippered storage pockets, ventilation systems and adjustable waistbands. Many are lightweight for uncomplicated packing, and most come in black or grey color options. Transcendent brands for men include The North Face, Mountain Hardwear, Marmot and Patagonia.
