Maier says about the Raindrop
Do you want to go hiking, but the weather is playing havoc with your plans? Sounds like the perfect conditions for our waterproof, breathable RAINDROP M hiking pants. What's special about these is that they can be worn two ways: if the forecast is for steady, prolonged rain, they can be worn as full hiking pants. Thanks to the Silverplus® mesh lining, they have a comfortable feel and are extremely breathable. But if it only looks like showers according to the weather map, the RAINDROP M pants can be worn as a top layer if it starts to rain. They purposefully have a wide fit and adjustable leg widths. The mTEX 10.000 membrane is fully waterproof and its extremely high vapour permeability makes this material perfect for many outdoor activities. The two spacious pockets with zip closures ensure that all your important items are also well protected.
An additional benefit: when the rain stops, you can simply pack your RAINDROP M pants away in your backpack thanks to them being lightweight and compact.
