Ultralight all-weather pants

The Planet Earth Ultralight Pants are lightweight, softshell pants that stretch like high performance sports gear and repel water and dirt with biomimetic technology. They’re part of a system of ultralight, highly technical all-weather clothing designed to take you across every climate, environment and terrain on the surface of Earth. Each pair starts out with advanced material technology developed by Schoeller in Switzerland, before being assembled at a cutting-edge Portuguese factory that builds skin suits for elite Olympic athletes.

Designed to work anywhere

While the pants are highly elastic, breathable and water repellent, they don’t look or feel like sports gear. And that’s because the Nylon yarn we’ve used to weave the material is engineered with a textured surface. It gives the pants a soft feel and minimalist look so they fit in anywhere. So if your days involve transitioning from trails to the office, or you just like to move around fast and light, these pants will work anywhere.

Microscopic chains that mimic plant leaves

The fabric replicates the self-cleaning effect produced by cuticles with microscopic chains wrapped around each individual fibre. These helix structure chains spiral round the fibres to reduce surface tension, forcing water and mud to simply roll off the surface of the pants. The technology works without using any toxic fluorocarbons while keeping you and the pants dry and clean at the same time.

Ultra lightweight at 275 grams

Weighing 275 grams the pants are phenomenally lightweight and packable. When they’re on you’ll hardly notice them, or they fold down small enough to make it into almost any bag. Pair them with our Planet Earth Ultralight Shell and your whole system will only weigh 625 grams. And while lots of ultralight clothing is completely stripped back to save weight, we’ve not sacrificed features like zipped pockets that make the pants as practical as they are lightweight.
