These are our top of the line pants for paddling. Made with 4 layer waterproof-brethable Entrant shell fabric, with each seam trimmed to 1/16th seam allowance before taping for maxiumum dryness. The booties are 2 mm neoprene that are glued and seam taped, and then bonded to the main pants with a polyurethane polymer. These pants are designed to be dry from the waist down- perfect for really cold days when you might find yourself thigh-deep in water during a tricky exit on the shore line. The waistband is a 2 mm neoprene, and the pants are egonamically cut for a sitting position. Semi-dry zip pocket on right front waist.
