Arcteryx Zeta SL Womens Pant - performance plus!By: Jennifer Watterson on 6 June 2019On the third day of a five day hike in Conondale National Park the heavens opened and down came the rain. We had 18km to hike and the tempt was barely 4 degrees when we started. Despite these weather conditions I was comfortable and most importantly - dry! I started with my hiking pants over my merino thermals and the Arcteryx Zeta as the top layer. After about 11am it was a little warmer and after a strip down (made so easy with the zip side opening on each leg) I just had the hiking pants underneath. The pants seems to "breath" with ease throughout the rest of the day. These pants never felt over hot and I was never cold, even when we stopped for a break. By the time we arrived at camp, conditions had dried up and the Arcteryx Zeta dried really quickly. We negotiated several obstacles that wet cold day, rock and logs included and there were no signs of these great pants giving way. I can not speak highly enough for these pants. If you are looking for a good quality waterproof pant that doesn't feel like you are wrapped in cling wrap, these are the ones for you.
