The Light Hike Hydroshell Overpants by Berghaus are a lightweight, waterproof as well as comfortable hardshell pants, made of 2.5 layered Hydroshell Elite material. This provides incredibly reliable water repellent properties, but is also highly breathable. The trousers have an elastic waistband that can be adjusted using a drawstring, making them incredibly comfortable to wear. You can also increase or decrease ventilation as desired using the practical waterproof zippers that run down ¾ of the legs. The pants - as the name suggests - are mainly used as an extra layer over the top of other pants, and so are not fitted with pockets. That does not pose a problem however, because the practical zippers give you easy access to the pockets of pants you are wearing underneath. There is also a practical mesh stuff sack included to compactly store the Light Hike Hydroshell Overpants and take advantage of their light weight. ;"
