Description

With a specially developed 20K/20K fabric, the Nautilus offer exceptional waterproofing and breathability, keeping you dry on even on the steepest and soggiest of hillsides. A durable 3-layer construction provides reliable, long-lasting performance, and maximum reassurance when you’re bracing for biblical levels of rainfall.

The Nautilus have been designed for dynamic movement with articulated knees and a diamond-shape gusseted crotch, allowing you to move with precision on airy scrambles. A slimmer lower leg eliminates excess material (and perpetual flapping in strong winds) and there’s a little bit of fabric give for high strides.

The semi-elasticated waist with zip-fly and button-closure provides a secure fit for a range of body shapes, makes them much easier to get on and off, and helps with sudden calls of nature.

A 70D high-tenacity nylon outer fabric is exceptionally tough for season after season heavy usage. We’ve also reinforced the hems and insteps to provide extra abrasion resistance in high wear areas. If you do decide to brave frosted ridges and frozen wind slab, the stiffened instep patches are also harder to catch, stopping you from cutting your ankles to ribbons with crampon spikes.

Three-quarter length two-way leg zips make it easier to get them on over boots and enable easy venting on more vertical inclines. The zips themselves are water-resistant with internal storm flaps to keep out driving squalls. Drawcords on the leg hems allow you to cinch in the bottoms over your boots.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Caring For Your DWR
To keep your trousers' durable water repellent (DWR) treatment in tip-top condition, wash them regularly in pure soap or a specialist cleaner. You may also need to refresh the treatment about once or twice a year (depending on usage) using a reproofer. Using a spray-on reproofer maintains your trousers' wicking ability.

Washing Instructions
Wash on a delicate cycle at 30˚C or hand wash with lukewarm water. Use a technical wash product (like Nikwax Tech Wash or Grangers Performance Wash) or pure soap. DO NOT use detergent, fabric conditioners or softeners. Rinse thoroughly in clean water. Line dry or tumble dry on low heat. You can also use a cool iron to reactivate the DWR.

Environmental considerations

PFC-Free DWR
The Nautilus trousers uses a completely PFC-free DWR treatment on their outer fabric. PFCs are potentially harmful and have been found to build up in the environment. We don't like the sound of that so we've been working hard to get rid of them.
