The lightest waterproof trousers we have on offer! The Halo range is spectacular value for seriously lightweight, fully waterproof gear. What's not to love about that?!
An ultra lightweight, breathable waterproof pant that packs down to the size of a tennis ball. Ideal for when you want to move fast & light. Constructed using minimal taped seams in a 2 layer waterproof fabric. When combined with the Halo Smock the Halo suit weighs a total of 175g.
OMM's Halo Pants Waterproof Overtrousers have articulated knees, taped seems, elasticated waist and Velcro closure ankles. That is a genuinely impressive set of features in itself but add to that the incredibly low weight of just 80g for a medium size and the internal pocket that doubles as the stuff sack and you are getting a fantastic pair of waterproofs. There are waterproof overtrousers with higher HH and MVTR values but at 10,000 for each it is more than enough for most people in most conditions.
Usually with gear like this the price tag then kicks in as the restriction for most people but OMM have kept the Halo range at an amazingly low price point through the use of their own fabrics. Trousers like this are designed for running events rather than hill walking. They won't be as strong or durable as hiking pants but that's not what they're built for.
