Specifically developed for high aerobic activities, HydroFoil™ Plus combines a lightweight ripstop nylon shell with a composite membrane that is completely waterproof, totally windproof and extremely breathable. The outer fabric is the latest new-generation Pertex® Shield+ membrane. It is more than twice as breathable as most other quality waterproof-breathable fabrics, and has a small amount of stretch allowing a closer fit. The outer fabric is treated with a durable water repellent finish that encourages rain to bead up and roll off, while there is a lightweight tricot mesh on the inside for greater durability and improved moisture dispersion.

▹ Why 3/4 instead of full-length over trou?
We've extensively tested both full length and 3/4 waterproof pants over the years. In our experience 3/4's provide the best trade-off between functionality and performance.
Haven’t tried them in the rain yet, slightly baggyer that I imagined I didn’t realise you wear them on top of shorts not instead but should be good for camping overnight riding trips. Thanks Sam
They’re so good, summer arrived in Invercargill and hasn’t left yet… Very practical, just haven’t had the chance to use in anger yet!
I’ve worn my helper skelters a couple of times in wet& cold conditions and am very happy with them. They are comfortable & functional.
Light weight, compact and effective.
Fantastic for weather beating cyclists on a westerly Heaphy mission!
