You can float up Astroman's Enduro Corner with finesse and style, but when it comes to the Harding Slot, it's best just to grovel. Whether you're moving like a rock star or are in full body limbo, our Rock Craft Pants will keep up the pace with their tough, stretchy fabric blend of 96% nylon and 4% spandex. They have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish to shed afternoon thunderstorms and life-of-the-garment 40-UPF sun protection. Articulated knees and a gusseted crotch let you move your legs freely; offset belt loops and a low-profile front snap add harness compatibility. The five-pocket design includes two pockets in front, two in back and one on the thigh.
Because Deluge DWR is so effective at repelling light rain and snow, we can forego the use of a waterproof barrier on Patagonia soft shells thus improving breathability tremendously. When used on Patagonia hard shells, in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the Deluge DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
Patagonia products with the UPF disignation provide built-in sun protection that won't wear off. We select lightweight and breathable yarns and use special finishes (especially for light colors) to achieve sun protection. Patagonia clothes with rated UPF protection are tested independently to meet Australia/New Zealand or AATCC protocols. A rating of 15-24 earns a product rating of "good"; a rating of 25-39, "very good"; a rating of 40, 45 and 50+, "excellent." When tested in accordance with Australia/New Zealand test methods AS/NZS 4399 or AATCC 183/M6603/ASTM D6544.
