Raidlight have developed an impressive pair of waterproof pants in the Responsiv MP+. They are lightweight, waterproof and highly breathable. Ideal for meeting the mandatory kit requirements.
The Responsiv MP+ Pant is a lightweight over trouser that offers all the comfort and performance of our Revolutiv MP+® membrane (waterproof, highly breathable and stretch) making sure you can carry race regulation waterprooﬁng without compromising on weight or comfort in use.
Raidlight's Responsiv MP+ Pants are a great set of pants for fell running, mountain marathons and ultra distance events as the low weight, small pack size and taped seams tick all the boxes. They are lightweight, very waterproof with a 20,000HH and impressively breatheable with an MVTR of 25,000. Add to these stats, the fact that they are surprisingly soft and comfortable to wear even when running hard in poor conditions.
There is a stash pocket in the waistband for storing the pants when they're going into your pack which is handy. The drawstring waist is good for adjustability, especially for year-round use with varying layers worn. The lower leg has a wider cut than I like. Although this is good for quickly putting them on over trail shoes I'm not a fan when running in windier conditions.
