Special Honors

Blauer Rain Pants The B.Dry waterproof pants from Blauer are lightweight and flexible, with adjustable cuffs and an elastic waistband for comfort. If you require something more heavy duty, their Tacshell pants — while much pricier — offer the ultimate resistance to water, heat and abrasion. They also feature a zip-out insulated fleece liner for warmth. blauer.com

Mascot Workwear From full-body overalls to standard rain pants, Mascot offers pairs to suit a variety of situations and applications. Several fluorescent yellow and orange options are great for occupations that require heightened visibility, and each style is available in a wide range of sizes. mascotworkwear.com

Editor's Notes

November 05, 2019:

Both the North Face Resolve and Sierra Designs Hurricane were no longer available, and therefore eliminated from the rankings. We updated the listing for the Columbia Rebel Roamer with the latest version of the product. Based on reports of impressive durability in the face of tasks that require extensive physical activity, we slightly upgraded the position of the Carhartt Mayne.

Whereas many waterproof pants clearly favor functionality over aesthetics, the Jessie Kidden Winter provide a potent combination of the two. A baggy “clown-like” appearance is a common complaint for many pants of this type, but these have a stylish, tight-fitting design to go with a tough outer shell, a warm fleece lining, and several zippered pockets for storing accessories.

The Gash Hao Snowboard, another new addition, are tailor-made for skiing and other winter sports. We noted that they’re designed for both freedom of movement and heat retention, and users typically view them as an excellent value for their performance.

October 13, 2018:

Added a couple of products that stand out for their feature richness, and included an insulated pant in the selections. Re-evaluated each item's place on the list and changed the ranking of some based on value for the price.
