About Lowe Alpine Velocity Pants - Waterproof (For Women)
Closeouts. It couldn't be easier to pack up Lowe Alpine's Velocity waterproof pants. Made of lightweight Triplepoint®nylon, they compress down easily so you can stuff them into the interior back pocket, toss into your pack and get ready to call Mother Nature's bluff.

After 3 months of backpacking in Rocky Mountain National Park, I finally broke down and bought a pair of waterproof pants. I love lowe alpine brand so I opted for these. I stayed nice and dry through 2 rain storms and 1 hail storm. The material seems really durable as well.

These pants are very lightweight, and well made. And they're Gore-Tex. And they're only about [$]. And they zip to above the knee for pulling on over boots. And they sit at your natural waist. They pack down pretty small, too. I haven't actually used them yet, but the quality is so obvious I am confident that after wasting lots of money on cheaper pairs that weren't REALLY waterproof/breathable, I've finally found good rain pants.
