As good Tassie walkers we’re not fans of waterproof overpants except in extreme conditions. You don’t lose that much body heat through your legs, so we reckon you’re better off getting damp legs from time to time, then letting the inevitable next patch of sunshine dry you out. Here in Tasmania nearly every day contains all three weather genres – rain, wind and sun – sometimes even every hour.

If, however, you really feel the cold – or you’d rather be on a Karate-Kid-style regime (pants on, pants off) as the weather changes – we’ve got you covered with Reflex-fabric overpants. Lightweight, waterproof and windproof – and they pack, Escher-like, into their own back pocket.

These pants are also available to buy from us for $69.99

Variable weather and strong winds are the great landscape shapers out on the Three Cape, so a pair of lightweight waterproof overpants can come in handy, especially if you tend to feel the cold or are walking in winter. It’s worth remembering that you don’t lose that much body heat through your legs, so – especially in the warmer months – if you’re not too fussed about a cool breeze about the knees you’ll probably be fine getting damp legs from time to time, then letting the inevitable next patch of sunshine dry you out.
Our Reflex-fabric overpants come from Macpac. They’re lightweight, waterproof, windproof and they pack tidily into their own back pocket.
We also sell Macpac Pack-it-Pants for $69.99

    Hire the overpants as a precaution really as who wants to be wet when walking long distance? They pack up super small and very light so they don’t add much to your pack. I was happy to say I didn’t need them as we only had a sprinkle of rain on day 2, but would hire again. Ian and Gail, again offered exceptional service and genuine interest in our group. Love their enthusiasm! Thanks again.

    Hired the overpants as rain was forecast on day 2. We had 24mm rain and everything was wet including under the overpants. Would have been effective if not so much rain but didnt think could handle constant downpour. Would definitely hire again as they packed up small and were light. Would have been happy to pay more to have hired goretex overpants if they were available.

    These overpants were super light and great value. We just hired them as a precaution and were hoping not to need to use them. As we set off on Day 2 there were a couple of strong squalls coming through with strong winds so out came the overpants. Lucky for us they didn’t end up getting wet but they looked like they would handle rain well and certainly helped block the super strong wind. Strongly recommended to take ‘just in case’ as they pack up small and are super light. Our 12 and 14yo used a Small and my wife took a Medium (and she’s around 168cm tall)- perfect sizes. The delivery and pickup service from Ian and Gail is absolutely fantastic – great to see such customer focus and service.

    The service offered by Gail and Ian was great! Can highly recommend them. I did not need the rain overpants but had great peace of mind having them in my pack.

    Didn’t need my overpants after all but was easy to organise hire with pick up & drop off convenience.

    Light and very small pack. I was suspicious the tiny pack even had pants in it! But it did and they were great. Size 10 is equivalent to a small and these were perfect to fit over my exercise pants.
