The Burton Hellbrook Premium Pant is a well made well built pant that offers a good amount of protection. It’s a slimmer version of the 2L Gore-Tex Highland Pant and it doesn’t have Gore-Tex.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Turn On’s: Size M pants that fit well around my thighs, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and especially my wife.
Turn Off’s: M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.
Fit: It’s a bit on the snug side and tight around my thighs. There isn’t much room to get my keys in and out. For most this would not be considered a mid fit but instead semi-tight.
Construction: It’s built like many high end pants that have Gore-Tex. You don’t usually have to worry about Burton when it comes to construction.
Insulation/Warmth: Pretty much a normal pant that isn’t cold like a thin technical shell but you can’t solely depend on this for warmth.
Waterproofing: 15k is pretty decent with Burton but it’s still a good bit behind their higher end pants. It will work if you see wet snow on ocassion.
Breathability: 10k aint much to write home about but it will breathe if you don’t overheat quickly.
Overall: If this fits ya its a great pant that can offer a good bit of protection from the elements and like the Highland Pant it offers more warmth than a regular pant.
