The Rab Firewall Pants are stretch waterproof pants using Pertex Shield + 3-layer fabric. The Rab Firewall Pants are an excellent option for that all day waterproof trouser for walking here in the Lake District on one of our guided walks, but also ideal for use as a lightweight alpine or winter pant where freedom of movement is essential to allow for those fast ascents. The pant has built in stretch and knee articulation for extra freedom of movement.
The lightweight and packable design also means the Rab Firewall Pants are a great option if heading off on one of our worldwide expeditions as they are a fantastic option as that emergency pair of over trousers should you experience heavy downfalls on your walk in to base camp or as an extra layer of protection when high on the mountain.
3/4 length fully waterproof YKK® AquaGuard 3-way side zips allow for high levels of breathability lending the Firewall Pants to active use in mixed environments. These 3/4 length zips also mean that in the changeable conditions we experience here in the UK allows for the pant to easily be taken on and off over an size of walking boot. Comfort is guaranteed with the addition of a part elasticated gripped waistband and knee articulations to assist with technical climbing.
The Rab Firewall Pants are compatible with winter boots with the addition of under-boot cord attachment loops and a regular fit allows for a baselayer to be comfortably worn underneath. The underboot cord attachments are small but perfectly formed and you have to add your own loops. The Firewall pants are a good option if you want stretch, high breathability and 3 layer durability without a significant weight penalty.
