The Montane Minimus Pants are ultralight waterproof overtrousers constructed from Pertex Shield which provides excellent levels of waterproofness and breathability. They can pack down very small and only weigh 146g for a size medium, meaning they won't be a burden on you if they stay in your pack for your whole trip.

Montane says:


The Minimus Pants are exceptionally lightweight rain shell pants. Tailored for trail running and use when moving fast in the mountains, the Minimus Pants can be pulled on over lightweight trail footwear and have a tiny pack size for superb versatility. Together with the supreme breathability of PERTEX® Shield they’ve become one of the most innovative no compromise minimalist waterproof shell garments MONTANE® has ever created.

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.

A pain to put on

The trousers kept out the rain well and did not flap in the wind. However the velcro straps around the ankle made them frustrating to get on over shoes.
