UOG TOP PICK - Mountain Equipment's Zeno Pants - Offers lightweight durability - We've singled out Mountain Equipment's Zeno Pants as one of our top recommendations because they offer great waterproofing and breathability, all under the £100 price mark. It's made from a combination of lightweight yet durable fabric which gives them a small pack size yet still offers a 3/4 zip for easy access over boots and layers. It even comes in a choice of leg lengths.
Mountain Equipment's Zeno Pants are lightweight, well fitting waterproof trousers that provide the perfect back up plan for trekking in remote locations.
Mountain Equipment says:
With our trim Active fit and articulated knees these are shell pants that won’t hold you back. Our 2.5 layer DRILITE fabric gives reassuring waterproof performance combined with a tiny pack size and ¾ length zips that make for easy access over boots as the storm rolls in.
The Mountain Equipment Zeno Pants have great 3/4 length zips on them making it super easy to get these over any trekking shoes or boots. They have an elasticated waist and a drawcord to really make sure these overtrousers are going to stay up no matter what activity you're doing.
The Drilite fabric is sort of a halfway house between being very lightweight and being very durable, it's a good combination of both properties and will suit the general outdoorist.
