The Rab Bergen eVENT pants have ¾ length water-resistant side zippers with double sliders for easy on and off, and to enhance ventilation. The knees are articulated, and will receive additional reinforcement in the next upgrade. Weight is 12 ounces (340 g) and the MSRP is $175. The Bergen Pant is currently available and comes in sizes S to XXL.
The Bergen Pant was selected for our winter traveler to use for legwear over a baselayer, rather than an “overtrowser” as suggested by Rab. They will be comfortable to wear for moderate and high aerobic activity in cool to cold weather, and additional ventilation can be obtained by opening the side zippers.
