EMS Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant

I live in the soggy Northwest, and my walking partner insists that we do our daily hour-long power walk, rain or shine.  Thanks to my EMS Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant, I stay so dry that I no longer mind being out in the rain.

The EMS Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant, available in men’s and women’s sizes, has an elastic waistband and full-length zippers on each pant leg. I’d never worn zippered rain pants before I tested the EMS Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant, and I’m a convert. I like having the option of ventilating when I get warm, and I love being able to put on and take off the pant and without removing my shoes or boots. There are closure tabs on each side of the waistband (sealed with Velcro) and along the hem (sealed with snaps).

The Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant is made out of a seam-taped, waterproof, breathable nylon that’s very lightweight yet has held up to repeated wearings for the past few months. I love the articulated knees of this pant; they make it easier for me to move around without feeling like I’m working against my pant! 

When not in use, the Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant can be stuffed into it’s rear pocket for packing!  I usually wear this pant over leggings or a pair of lightweight jeans.

I tested the women’s Thunderhead Full-Zip Pant, and found it true to size.  The pant is available in short (29” inseam) and regular (31” inseam), sizes XS-XL, in black. Black men’s pant available in S-XXL, in regular length or short length.

Bottom Line: An affordable pantI can count on to keep me dry. --K.K.. (June 2012)
