We’ve mentioned the new Drac Jacket from Arc’teryx LEAF several times, but they’ve just released the new Drac Pant. In fact, I literally purchased mine yesterday from Tactical Distributors.
Both are manufactured from Burly Double Weave softshell (look for an in-depth article soon). The thing about Burly Double Weave is that it’s a cold weather product so keep that in mind. You’re getting wind and water resistance along with a generous 4-way stretch. We’ve mentioned that the DRAC Jacket offers a generous cut and the same can be said of the pant. If you’re on the edge between sizes, go down rather than up with Drac.
The Drac Pant features an interesting combination of styling and features. It’s as if the Combat Pant and Sphinx Pant had a baby. All of the features of the Sphinx with the stretchy goodness of Burly Double Weave.
