Salomon Field Pant

Softshell pants that are waterproof from the knees down.

Brand: Salomon

Model: Field Pant

Engineered for wet, sloppy trails, this softshell is waterproof from the knees down. The windproof nylon kept our tester comfortable in bitter, 45-mph winds in Iceland’s Skaftafell National Park. And while another tester was postholing through knee-deep, wet snow on a fall hike in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, the Field Pant pinch-hit for gaiters. “I appreciated that the fabric didn’t wet out and freeze from hours of tromping through the slush,” he reports.
