The North Face Speedlight trousers womens
The North Face Women’s Speedlight Pants are simple soft-shell trousers that are perfect for hiking and exploring the mountains. They are stretchy, water resistant and fast-drying, and pack down extremely small, great for when packing space is limited. Reinforced knee sections help to protect against abrasion from rocks, while the elasticated waist and articulated knees make for extra comfort.
The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
