I pull on my waterproof Tierra pant made from Mountain Hardwear’s proprietary waterproof, breathable fabric, Conduit laminate, and realize I have a problem: the regular length is about 4 inches too long. The pant comes in a short inseam (I’m only 5’4), but I wasn’t able to get a pair. Nevertheless, these are Mountain Hardwear’s hippest pants with their brushed flannel, snowboarder-inspired look. The rise is a little low in the back for ladies with extra padding in the trunk—so beware when bending over!
