Why we made this
The Hightail Rain Pants Mens are extremely lightweight, windproof and waterproof seam-sealed pants. Part of our Alpine Series, these rain pants are designed in partnership with the renowned New Zealand Alpine Team.
  • Product Description
    Extremely lightweight, windproof and waterproof, the mens Hightail Pants are part of our Alpine Series, designed in partnership with the renowned New Zealand Alpine Team. From the design floor, to some of the world's hardest alpine routes, the Hightail range has been tested, refined and retested by elite climbers who have pushed these items to their extreme limits. The Hightail is perfect for activities such as alpine climbing and adventure racing where there are no compromises on weight, and packability is crucial. A highly effective rainwear piece, the Hightail is fully taped and constructed with 100% Nylon Double Ripstop fabric with a thin Pertex Shield® membrane to create an almost weightless addition to your pack. Note: The lightweight nature of this fabric means it's not suitable for high abrasion use.

  • Care
    To get the best performance out of your waterproof garment frequent washing and drying is recommended
    Before washing ensure all zippers and closures are secure
    Warm machine wash on gentle cycle using pure soap or Nikwax Tech Wash®
    Do not bleach or use fabric softeners
    Cool tumble dry. This is very important to rejuvenate the DWR finish
    Do not dry clean
    Apply a DWR restorer, such as Nikwax TX. Direct® to help prolong the life of your garment
    A frequently washed garment is a well performing one

Love these pants, I rarely use rain pants so love that these are very low bulk and perfect for an emergency.

Great product
Bought these as wet-weather pants for golf. They are fantastic! Packable so they take up minimal space in my bag, waterproof, and being windproof are warm enough with just shorts underneath in any temperature I am likely to play in. Long zips for easy on and off over golf shoes (or tramping boots).
The only downside for me was no external pocket, but given the great job they do, I can forgive that.

too light
wore these climbing last month, they ripped to bits within 4 hours of wind and snow, in my opinion they are far too lightweight for climbing

Lesson learnt
Wore these pants on Mera Peak in Nepal and found them super light but still really effective protection against a moderate wind.

Forgot to wear gaiters so crampons tore the lower legs to shreds. Too tired to notice until I got back to base camp.

Would buy again though.
