The Rab Kinetic Alpine Pants are highly breathable, waterproof trousers for active use in the mountains. Rab's Proflex waterproof fabric is uniquely stretchy offering complete freedom of movement. The Kinetic Alpine pants features a tough Nylon face fabric with ceramic print overlays on the seat, knees and instep. The Kinetic Alpine pants are designed to be worn all day, so you get a comfortable breathable softshell climbing trouser with the added reasurance that if the weather goes south you don't need to hang around putting on overtrousers..
The Proflex waterproof fabric has also been DWR treated meaning that, as it also has taped seams, the Kinetic Alpine is waterproof jacket, but with the stretch and breathability of a softshell jacket. The soft Proflex fabric feels comfortable next to the skin, and its breathability of 35,000 MVTR means you do not get a clammy feeling as with other waterproof membranes. Proflex offers the stretch and freedom of movement of a softshell garment but with the reassurance that when the weather inevitably goes south, you aren't going to get soaked.
The Kinetic Alpine Pants feature articulated knees for unrestrained freedom of movement. There's a low profile drawcord waist adjuster and the fly has a reveres zipper for ease of use with a harness.

Customer Reviews of Rab Kinetic Alpine Pants
I have not tested these pants in the mountains yet, but so far they work extremely well on winter bicycle commuting.
They are so comfortable, waterproof, pack in a small pouch, generous pockets, really ideal for alpine climbing or any other outdoor activity.
These pants are marvelous. Totally waterproof and windproof. They are very comfortable. Reinforcements make them solid in places needed. Very light and small after packing, so good for trips.
