Description

The Parallax weigh about the same as your average sandwich. But they’re significantly more waterproof.

  • 20K HH/20K MVTR for a balance of waterproofness and breathability
  • 2.5 layer fabric for lightweight packability
  • Half-length water-resistant zips for putting on over boots

The Parallax are super comfortable with an active, articulated fit and full freedom of movement for clambering over stiles. The neat cut eliminates excess fabric. They’re made with a soft, quiet 2.5-layer fabric. No more swish-swish as you walk. And they’re PFC-free.

The 20K HH offers extremely high protection from the wettest of weather, along with the taped seams. The 20K MVTR keeps the trousers breathable for when you’re getting the blood pumping. The Parallax are lightweight, packable and adjustable. They have an elasticated waist and drawcord. The half length water resistant zips and VELCRO® Brand tabs at the cuff help you pull the trousers over your boots for those on again, off again walks.

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.
