The Cloudburst Pants deliver guaranteed storm protection in the form of a fully featured waterproof pant.
We designed the Cloudburst Pant with a single philosophy in mind: Miserable weather should never turn hunting into a miserable experience. We spared no detail in developing a pant that maximizes comfort and ease of use for dedicated big game hunters. The lightweight, 2-way stretch GORE-TEX® Fabric is Guaranteed to Keep You Dry®. The face fabric, an abrasion resistant 2-way stretch polyester weave, is durable and allows the pant to move with you as you push through the torrent.
All zippers are welded and watertight, which is significant, since there are a lot of them on the Cloudburst Pant. The full side zippers make for easy on and off in rapidly changing conditions, and can be used for ventilation during periods of high exertion. Four zippered hip pockets eliminate the need to dive into your pack or midlayers to retrieve key gear. Elastic cuffs seal out the elements. With all these features, the Cloudburst Pant remains incredibly light and packable, so you don’t have to second guess whether to bring it along.
I love the fit of my Cloudburst rainsuit. I live and hunt in Alaska. On our island it rains 63% of the days a year. I NEED good raingear. However, from day one they have not been waterproof as advertised. I walked through wet ferns the first day and my knees were soaked within an hour. Every time I've used them I've had wet pants underneath. It made for a cold brown bear hunt and last weeks blacktail hunt. I sent an email to Sitka and they quickly replied. They wanted me to send them to a repair service so they could determine what was wrong with them. There's nothing wrong with them, they're brand new. They're just not waterproof! Period! $325 down the drain.
Hey Chuck - Thanks for bringing this to our attention and I apologize for the delay. Please shoot me your phone number. This is certainly a warranty problem and not something you should experience with our Gear. Let's chat and get you into a replacement or something more fit for your use.
Just purchased these pants tonight (12/10/2013) and immediately began "testing" them in the North Dakota snow/shoveling. While they do not have the warm inner layer(it was -28 tonight), they worked phenomenal at preventing moisture. Obviously they will be used for hunting as well. LOVE the suspenders and belt! Really add to the pants. Plan on purchasing a jacket in the near future.
I purchased these pants for a Sitka deer hunt this fall. Southeast Alaska did it's job and produced five days of solid drenching rain. At the end of the trip my legs were one of very few things that were dry. End of the day it was an awesome hunt that I would do again in a heartbeat. I have since these pants hunting Elk and Deer in my home state of Idaho with great results. Thanks for making a piece of gear that I feel comfortable putting in my pack no matter where the drive to hunt takes me.
