66 Degrees North Heidmork Pants
images/66 Degrees North

Your mercilessly beeping alarm clock is only rivaled in volume by the rhythmic sound of rain and the whoosh of wind. It's time to rise, gear up and make your way to the trailhead. Though, should you go? The rain will give you a pre-bath but sure you go. The rain can't stop you getting some 'face time' with nature.

The 66 Degrees North Heidmork Pants are advertised for their performance in adverse conditions. The pants consist of polyurethane coated nylon and are touted as waterproof and breathable. The pants' design features articulated knees for a more rugged wear and taped seams. A pocket flanks each side of the Heidmork Pants and a drawstring is accessible to accommodate washboard abs to beer bellies.

The heavy-duty construction coupled with the pants' waterproof and breathable features makes them perform for all four seasons. The rugged design can dominate the elements for winter treks and the wicking ability makes them an option for the warmer weather.

There is a snap button located on the cuff of each leg giving the Heidmork the flexibility to be used from boarding in Mammoth Lakes ski areas to sea kayaking in the frosty spring conditions off the Oregon coast.

In the face of a savage downpour, the pants kept their composure and more importantly the rain drops out. They are not the best bet for the dog days of summer as they get a little hot and uncomfortable.

66  Degrees North Logo66 Degrees North focus their apparel more on alpine conditions, so the Heidmork are geared more for the inclement conditions of the cold weather months. A lighter and more airy pair of pants is better suited for the summer. Lighter pants though are usually water resistant instead of waterproof.

The 66 Degrees North Heidmork Pants can protect you from the unplanned elements year around but are a bit too heavy for muggy summer days. 66 Degrees North lists a retail price of $122.
