Durable, waterproof, and extremely breathable, Outdoor Research Men’s Foray Pants keep you dry and comfortable during downpours, but remove easily when the weather clears thanks to two-way 3/4-length side zippers.


Durable waterproof and extremely breathable Outdoor Research Men's Foray Pants keep you dry and comfortable during downpours but remove easily when the weather clears thanks to two-way 3/4-length side zippers.

Despite its hardshell protectiveness the jacket's fabric has an extremely soft “hand”. By using a PFC-free waterproof solution the GORE-TEX Paclite fabrication diminishes environmental concern without sacrificing performance. The fabric is also highly breathable but those side zippers that make the pants easy to get on and off also serve as vents so you can dump excess heat. A gusseted crotch and articulated knees enhance fit and help to promote maneuverability. An elastic waistband provides a secure but forgiving fit and a drawcord lets you snug in fit.

Other features include internal loops at the cuffs of the pants for adding instep laces (laces not included) low-profile tabs at the waistband for use with suspenders (suspenders not included) and a back pocket that doubles as a stuff sack for the pants. A carabiner loop inside the pocket lets you clip the packed down pants to your pack.

Available in your choice of size options Outdoor Research Men's Foray Pants have a standard fit that allows you to comfortably layer beneath them.

Waterproof, good fit, great ventilation.


A little pricey.

Terrific For Those Who Run Hot


Best thing is the side zippers, which run pretty much the length of the leg. I tend to overheat quickly and this helps a lot. Haven't tried them in rain but they kept me dry during three hours in heavy, wet snow. They also seem to be windproof although haven't been in anything over 30 mph.


As with the Foray jacket I bought the zippers are a little balky and that is worrisome since there is no hook-and-loop fastener as a fail safe. And the only pocket is over the right, rear buttock.
