You chinch up the drawstring on your North Face Venture Pants, momentarily sheltered by the dense limbs of this old growth Doug fir. You've planned to reach the top of that mountain before dinner time but this rain came out of nowhere. Luckily you're prepared, and you'll make good use of your rain pants' HyVent polyurethane coating to keep you dry during the steep hike ahead of you. The pants packed away so well you never noticed them, and even now they're hardly there - except that they're repelling the rain. You head out again, comfortable in your North Face Pants.
