Here you'll find wet weather trousers which are for those heavy rains that are usually forecasted just for your planned outdoor activity. Rain pants are generally used when you knowingly go to a wet thicket to traipse.

We have those military rain pants with and without suspenders. And, of course, this selection also includes brand new rain trousers and military surplus. Some of the rain pants are basically regular outdoor pants but with a waterproof and quite breathable membrane. Thinner wet weather pants are mostly designed to be a little loose because, on average, you'll wear some warmer layers under. Varusteleka's own brand can offer Särmä Hardshell trousers that are functional rain pants with M05 camo known from Finnish Defence Forces.

Paired with a rain jacket or rain poncho these are an obvious choice. Fewer people get these, though, because donned over regular trousers these will increase sweating by a large margin, and they are a bit of a chore to put on - even if you have side-zips to make things easier with boots on.

Trousers are more susceptible to wear, so the choice between technical membrane stuff and non-breathing ones should be carefully weighed. Increased sweating can be mitigated with the right choice of lower layers (or lack thereof). Breathable membrane fabrics can be redeemed, if the knees and butt are reinforced.

Rain trousers are revered by those who use them and for a good reason. When you need them, the fuss of getting them on is a minor inconvenience and well worth the effort.
