Biographie How To Choose The Best Waterproof Hiking Pants?

In any hiking trip, it's hard to avoid the water elements. A good pair of regular pants for hiking can dry very quickly. However, if you hike in adverse weather conditions, it's better to invest in the best waterproof hiking pants, which provide you with a better protective outer layer to face the outdoor elements.

Your needs

What do you need from waterproof hiking pants?

What are the specifications of the product?

It's not very likely that waterproof hiking pants that can work well in the heavy shower are efficient for heavy rain all day long.

For some hikers, just using water resistant hiking pants is enough to meet their demands. Others want to invest in specialized waterproof rain pants, which can better put up with heavier blasts of rain. Of course, you can completely use both in pretty wet conditions.


No matter what you choose, the material for rain pants must be breathable and waterproof. These features make sure to keep rain and water from getting in. At the same time, your sweat and perspiration can get out and away from your legs as well.

You can consider Gore-Tex or a similar breathable and waterproof material technology.


A good pair of pants had better be a bit loose at the waist to let air circulate. If you don't want to appear with a bulky look, ensure that your rain pants fit over your hiking boots.

Weight and pack-ability

It's best to pick up a product with a light carrying weight and good pack-ability. You must take most of the essential items on your back during the hiking trip. So, do you want to pack something heavy and bulk?

In this case, make sure that you can wrap your rain pants quickly and pack them comfortably.


Compared to a regular pair of hiking pants, you need to spend more money on weather hiking pants. However, you will get what you pay for. The price range is $80.00-$150.00. However, the cheaper the pants are, the less functional material and less water resistance they are. A too low price can lead to a risk of bad quality.


The side zips at the bottom of the pant legs help you put on over boots easier. For some designs, you will find buttons along the outside leg.

It would be best if you also cared about some ventilation features. The best weather hiking pants should let the air in and allow the hot air to escape from your legs.

As I mentioned, to choose the best weather hiking pants, you have to determine what you need, and which product can meet your requirement. After reading my post, have you chosen a suitable product? If you have any tip and trick to purchasing great hiking pants, please share with other readers in the comment section below.

Thank you very much for reading until the end, and wish you have a wonderful hiking trip, in spite of the weather.
