Mountain Hardwear's Women's Chockstone Pull On Pants are a super stretchy and comfy pair of pants with zippered pockets. The softshell fabric sheds showers.
Mountain Hardwear says:
Add these double-weave climbing pants to your arsenal for autumn temps and Creeksgiving. The legs and seat are a nudge roomy for complete ease of motion.
Mountain Hardwear's Women's Chockstone Pull On Pants are made from a super stretchy softshell fabric which is tough and lightweight. Its at the highly breathable end of the spectrum which means it won't stop the showers as well as heavier pants - but it will perform much better than non-softshell.
Its a good fabric that's comfortable to wear and as with all stretch pants they can be cut closer without compromising movement meaning that you don't have the excess fabric flapping around with some hiking pants. The Chockstone Hike pants also have articulated knees which add to the excellent freedom of movement.
There are two zipped hand pockets which are lined with the same softshell fabric as the pants and a further zipped pocket on the back. The waist and ankle seams are elasticated to ensure a close fit. There is a draw sting in the waist for cinching in if required. The fabric offers UPF protection of 50, which is among the highest ratings.
