Men’s rain pants and waterproof pants are useful for more than just rainstorms. Nylon men’s waterproof pants keep water out and are great for fishing or hiking in moist climates. Men’s rain pants also keep out other forms of moisture such as snow. This makes them great for skiing or snowboarding. Men’s waterproof pants made of Gore-Tex®, a composite membrane of two porous polymers, are also perfect for outdoor activities that require contact with moisture. Gore-Tex® pants are made up of tiny pores that are each 20,000 times smaller than a raindrop. This makes them impervious to rain, snow and sleet. However, Gore-Tex® pants are breathable and allow perspiration vapors to flow through, so your legs are protected from inside moisture, also. Men’s rain pants from Lowe Alpine, Mammut and Mountain Hardwear are great for traversing the town in inclement weather or adventuring outdoors in wet conditions.
