If you prefer to keep your clothing streamlined and minimal, the Montbell Versalite Pants are a solid option. They’re incredibly lightweight and they pack down really small, so they’re ideal for activities like hiking and backpacking. The thin lightweight materials make the Versalite Pants feel more breathable than some, so they’re fairly comfortable to hike in even though they don’t have any zippers for ventilation. Ultralight pants aren’t as durable as more heavy-duty options, but the tradeoff is well worth it to help keep backpack weight down on long or strenuous backpacking trips. We recommend keeping Tenacious Tape on hand for repairs on remote trips. If you like simplicity and a streamlined fit, the Versalite Pants are a great ultralight choice.

WINTER 19-20 GEAR GUIDE - CLOTHING

I was surprised how much I liked these minimalist rain pants. They weigh just over three ounces and pack up ridiculously small. Sometimes rain protection is in the back of your mind and the weather isn’t too cold, you want to pack a just-in-case shell. The Versalite provide all the rain protection you need and fit easily over street clothes. They practically disappear when you wear them, but provide an awesome rain barrier.
