GORE-TEX® Pro Shell 3L 70D 147 g/m² 100% Nylon Plain Weave Designed to provide superior comfort and durable waterproof protection in a wide range of outdoor activities, this patented shell/membrane technology is engineered to form an impenetrable barrier against wind and water while maintaining breathability.

Chimney Venting™ System Dramatically improves airflow through the pant, reducing both heat and humidity while greatly increasing breathability. The stretch-mesh placed in the upper section of the leg gaiter functions as a highly efficient air intake. This StretchVent™ allows cool, dry air to flow in as heated, moist air rises and exits upper thigh vents, producing continuous airflow and managing heat.
