Fabric waterproofing
We measure a fabric's resistance to a water column, in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure resistance, the more waterproof the fabric. Components with 2000 mm rating can resist 2000 mm of water pressure (which is roughly equivalent to a rain shower lasting 2 hours). With a waterproofing rate over 10 000 mm, pants offer an extremely high level of waterproofing.

Product's waterproofing
The Cascade pants have been approved in a shower test under 100 litres of water / m² / hour during 3 hours. This test reproduces the conditions of a heavy mountain downpour.
5
Fabric breathability
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporate resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more moisture, generated by an active body, is evaporated, and therefore the higher the fabric's breathability. We consider that if - RET < 9 = highly breathable fabric - 9
6
Garment breathability
On top the main fabric's breathability, these pants have been designed with 2 side zips that lets air circulate to regulate temperature, further enhancing ventilation

Brilliant trousers
Used for 3 to 6 months
Cant say enough about these trousers. Worn on two Scottish winter trips, very comfortable, well fitted and offer great protection. Well worth the money and offer a reasonably priced alternative to other brands yet still look good.
Brilliant Tousers
Used for 1 week or less
I've worn these for a weeks ice climbing in Rjukan Norway and they have received crampon scuffs, heavy amounts of water, ice and snow without any problems. The only thing is a small hole from a crampon just below the knee. If I could give them a higher score I would. Oh and the fit is fantastic, no baggy bits hiding my feet.
