Created for those who want to pack light and go far no matter the weather, the Visp rain pants boasts wind and rain protection in an ultralight package. Made with a customized 3-layer waterproof/breathable fabric, it’s fully stormproof, yet has an exceptionally breathable feel. Weighing in at around 4 ounces for most sizes, you’ll barely know it’s in your pack until you need it.

The customized 3-layer fabric combines ultralight 7D ripstop nylon, a waterproof/breathable ePTFE membrane, and a soft tricot lining for a comfortable next-to-skin feel. A waterproof 12" ankleYKK Uretek zipper allows for the easy removal over boots and shoes, and it also keeps moisture from coming in. A snap on the hem of the pant leg can also be used. The waistband is elastic, to ensure a comfortable fit. The articulated knee and crotch gusset allow for a full range of movement while the slightly tapered leg allows for an ideal fit. You can wear the Visp pants to shed wind and rain, or pair it with a Torrid APEX pants for a highly effective, ultralight pant system.

Excellent lightweight over trousers

Super, great quality & extremely light overtrousers. Less than half the weight of my old goretex over trousers, but still totally waterproof. The material is soft to the touch & very thin, but feels durable enough, though I wouldn't go bushwhacking in them! Extreme Winter conditions would also need something tougher, but for Summer backpacking, when over trousers stay in the pack most of the time, only to be worn in when the weather turns bad, they're just perfect. The ankle zips make getting them on really easy, even over my size 12 shoes. They breathe very well too - I'm usually very late putting on over trousers, so my pants are usually quite wet already - but they will dry out through the Visp over trousers. These are my first product from Enlightened Equipment & I'm very impressed with the build quailty, so much so that I hope to purchase more EE gear as I come to renew or upgrade. All round a great product that I really like & highly recommend.

First trial

Very happy with my visp rain pants after taking them on their first hike. I wore them as a layer above tree line on a windy day. Killed the wind, and I wasn't too hot going up hill. They were a little less breathable than my hiking pants, and more breathable than my previous LLBean rain pants. I bought them as a wind layer that I could throw over my shorts in windy or rainy weather. I sat on some sharp rocks and had no problem with durability. Definitely will be coming with me on all 3 season hikes as a wind, bug, rain layer on top of my shorts. Time will tell on the rain proof quality, but for how light they are I'm impressed from the start.
