Why should the guys have all the fun? We've redesigned our popular Weatherpants. With over 40,000 sold they now have been tailored specifically for women. You won't find a better, tougher, and lighter pant for hiking or camping anywhere. With a slimmer design, internal adjustable waist system, and flattering drape, the new Women's Weatherpants will be your loyal trailside companion. It does everything but fetch and roll-over. The quick-drying material is featherweight Duralite nylon that feels soft next to the skin but is amazingly durable; these pants will last for years and years. With these added features: Insect Shield Repellent Technology, a reinforced seat and knees made with RailTex nylon; articulated knees and gusseted crotch for enhanced freedom of movement; cordlock adjusters at hem, and a total of five pockets, two deep front-pockets, two zippered back pockets, and side cargo pocket with flap.
Reason For Being: Our indestructible Weatherpants aren’t just for boys! The Women’s Weatherpants pack the toughness and comfort of our classic Weatherpants but are specifically styled for ladies.
Fabric: Standard 2 ply, 3 oz nylon
RAILTEX Reinforcement: Railtex is the reinforcement nylon we put on most of our pants, similar to Cordura®. It is highly abrasion resistant and water resistant and is a second layer of defense. We reinforce the highest-impact areas of your pant: the knees, ankles, and butt, to ensure they last forever.
Adjustable Cuff: Drawstring around the cuff of the pant allows you to cinch them up or down, depending on what the terrain requires.
Insect Shield: 100% safe treatment for your clothing that will repel harmful insects and ticks. Permethrin is a new industry standard for bug repellant and the amount contained in our treated clothing is guaranteed to be safe for adults, children, and even pets. Effective up to 70 washes.
These pants seem durable and stylish but the XS fits smaller than both the Adventure Khakis in XS the Trail Gear Pants in size 2 so I will exchange to try a larger size. Though I can get the pants on move in them to sit makes them uncomfortably tight I prefer them to fit less snugly overall. Ideally the fabric would have stretch for a better fit but at least it is non-smelly.

I just bought a pair of Weatherpants for my girlfriend after having bragged about mine for a year. Wow these pants are tough Over the last couple of years she has ripped holes and tears in more than one pair of Columbia pants while walking through thick brush. She was doubtful that pants could be lightweight and quick-drying yet still be durable. I can tell you she was blown away by the exceptional build quality and durability of these pants. She has hiked through some of the thickest thorniest brush while wearing these and has not seen one hole or perforation. She is now a believer

Love the pants. Wore them in warm weather and was concerned I would get too hot but no. They are comfortable to wear. I like that the pants are not designed to be tight. Would love the pants more if they had more pockets as you find in the men's pants.
