Description

Comfortable waterproof trousers, with a neat cut to eliminate excess fabric but still allowing superb freedom of movement. Forget what you hate about waterproof trousers, these are lightweight, packable and comfortable to wear whatever the activity.

The 2.5 layer fabric is soft and quiet too, but still fully waterproof and breathable with 20K HH and 20K MVTR performance. Check out how our 20K/20K fabrics stack up against other brands and you will see just how good these pants are. You get adjustments in the form of an elasticated waist with drawcord, plus half length water resistant zips and VELCRO® Brand tabs at the cuff, so you can pull them on over your footwear. Weighing about the same as your average sandwich, they pack right down for stashing in your pack.

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 Parallax 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.

Fit Guide
Tight Slim Regular Relaxed
Close fitting designed to conform to your body shape. Slim and slightly contoured but not form fitting. A comfortable fit that's not too tight, nor too loose. A looser fit with a bit more space but not too baggy.
