Amazingly light - so there are some compromises - but not compromised much on waterproofness and breathability - Pertex Shield has some enviable waterproof and breathability ratings for a material this light.
Despite being this light the Montane Minimus pants have short ankle zips to aid getting them on and off - anyone caring enough about weight to be packing the Minimus pants will be wearing lightweight footwear that the short ankle zips should accommodate.
Like all products this light they aren`t as durable as heavier versions so don`t buy them expecting 20 years of hard use. While its difficult to give sizing advice beyond the size chart above the Minimus pants do seem to be slightly small fitting - so if you are between sizes we recommend you go up a size.
