Fabric waterproofing
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm waterproof rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With a waterproofing rate over 10 000 mm, these pants offer an extremely high level of waterproofing.
Product's waterproofing
The Cascade pants have been approved in a shower test under 100 litres of water / sqm / hour during 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
Fabric breathability
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability. We consider that if - RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric - 9<RET<12 = breathable fabric - RET > 12 = slightly or not breathable fabric. Cascade pants have a RET = 6
Garment breathability
On top of the main fabric's breathability, these pants have been designed with 2 side zips that lets air circulate to regulate temperature, further enhancing ventilation

    Pretty awesome

    Positives: very comfortable, easy to move about in. Durable and the vents are great. The pockets are handy and easy to adjust the straps.

    Cons: I found them a little awkward to get on with boots, a longer zip would be helpful.I’d be putting them on before it rained and not last minute. Although I had left the gaiters on so removing them might make this easier. Because of this I also got quite a bit of mub o the inside as well.
    They are a little bulkier than other waterproofs.

    I really like them they are awesome.

    Leider zu lang

    Leider war mir die Hose viel zu lang (bei 167cm Körpergröße) und schied damit aus. Sonst hätte ich sie gern behalten, mit den Reißverschlüssen an der Beinseite eine gute Wahl für Hochtouren.
