Editors' Choice Award
This performance oriented all-around model is stormworthy enough for rainy week long backpacking trips but light enough to throw in the bottom of your pack as a just-in-case layer on day hikes
Top Pick Award
Waterproof and breathable rain pants that protect well and go largely unnoticed in your backpack
The Minimalist is a basic pant that screams mobility and storm protection
The Ozonic offers some of the best breathability and mobility in our fleet
Top Pick Award
An excellent choice where packed space and weight are a priority
Hikers on a budget, with limited and short exposure to truly foul weather will dig these pants as an emergency product in the bottom of your pack
Simple, basic shell pants for typical casual use
Best Buy Award
You can certainly buy a nicer pair of rain pants but you'll find it difficult to buy a better pair for the price
For the price this is tough to beat; they are breathable, wallet-friendly, and feature full-length zippers
REI's offering is friendly on the wallet, and is versatile and storm-worthy; however, it's not as light as others in our fleet
Best Buy Award
The Rebel Roamer won't break the bank; while it doesn't boast a ton of extras, it's storm worthy and versatile
It is a small niche that these pants fill; for that niche, they are very well made and virtually over-prepared
Versatile and a decent weight, this model is perfect for downhill skiing or day hikes
