“Do you know if these pants protect against stinging nettles?”

  • The fabric is heavily coated and I imagine they would protect against nettles going THROUGH the fabric. However, if you walked through nettles and picked some up on the pants and then rubbed your hands or arms over them, I think you would get stung.

  • These pants protect against weeds, including stinging nettles. I wear them constantly, even if not raining. They are lightweight, yet waterproof, and not at all hot.
