    I made a pair of Ray-way shell pants. I made their largest size, 2XL. I’m short, have fat thighs, and want to be able to wear them over cargo shorts if need-be. I mostly wanted a project because I’m going stir-crazy with the pandemic and working from home.

    I think they came out well. 2.4oz, same as the size L EE windpants I bought from the Gear Swap. They’re pretty much the same size as them as well. They could have weighed less if I had made the waist a little lower and hemmed the length a little shorter.

    A decent option for myog people who want affordable windpants.

    Are those sil-nylon or just regular fabric?

    It’s nylon ripstop of some sort but it is not silnylon. They’re not waterproof. I wore them today on a hike. They were a bit too big, but that’s what I get for ordering the 2XL. Otherwise, it was a hot day so they were not needed for warmth. I was wearing leggings and little plant stickers were getting stuck in them and ruining my leggings. So the windpants were handy for putting a stop to that. And also ticks had a hard time holding on to the nylon.

    Outstanding Diane!!!!!!!  They really do look great.

    I think you’ve insired me to make my own windpants to wear over shorts when needed, instead of my pants w/zip-off legs.

    I recently made my own (lighter – yay!) knock-off of the MacPac Nitro in Polartec Alpha, so you post is making me even more inspired.

    Thanks Diane!  I ordered the same size and waiting for it to arrive!
