Our Paul D.W.R. uses a “Durable Water Resistant” fabric and coating that repels water before it has a chance to be absorbed by the natural cotton fibers. The fit is our more tailored bottom fit with a slight taper from the knee down. This pant is the perfect solution if you don’t want to wear a full tech bottom, but are fearful of being caught in the elements. Better yet, wear this pant daily on the bike and never be concerned with being caught in the rain. A true balance of form and function.
