Nike Therma Training Pants

I came across the pants on the following link and wanted your opinion if this is just the kind of clothing need for Iceland for a trip in late August/ early September: The item is even lower than the sale price in the link via a 20% off coupon that tripadvisor rules won't allow me to post but which you can find online. Let me know your thoughts.

They might be comfortable for driving in, but they won't protect you in bad weather, so you would still need a rain layer to wear over them.

Personally I would get a pair of quick-dry hiking pants or softshell pants and pair them with long baselayers if it is cold, plus a pair of rain pants for over them in case of bad weather.

I visited May 20-June 4 so conditions were maybe different than what you'll experience, but I was really active and best packing choices for me were:

- fleece lined leggings with a pair of elastic-waist waterproof rain pants to pull over them (got these at Eddie Bauer). This was ideal for cold/windy/rainy conditions when I ran or hiked. The day I hiked to the Reykjadalur hot springs, the weather was hilariously bad and this was the perfect attire. I was comfortable the whole time.

- a couple pair of thin wp/quick-dry rain pants for warmer days and also waterfalls. I went all the way into the hidden waterfall, for example, and the water practically just rolled off my pants. They were dry by the time I got back to my car. Eddie Bauer, REI are both good places to look.

Thank you all for your feedback.

Kim T: Is the item in the link below the one you are referring to?

Second: Separately, should I take longjohns or is that a complete no-no?

Nothing wrong with long johns, but they are really an old-fashioned approach. They go on underneath everything else so you can’t take them off readily if you get too warm. Much better, and preferred these days is an under layer made of technical fabric that breathes and wicks water (sweat) away from your skin. Over this you can wear a more insulated layer like fleece, and then a wind/waterproof layer. If too hot, you remove layers. For men, this first layer pants are usually a dark colour, and close fitting almost like leggings are for women. You might see bicyclists or serious runners wearing them, for example. They are considered perfectly acceptable to wear publicly. Long johns look like Grandpa’s underwear.

I can no longer see the moosejaw website from Europe...

Check out REI, Eddie Bauer, Columbia etc. for long baselayers, quick-dry hiking pants or soft shell pants and a pair of rainpants that won't break the bank.

I haven't worn longjohns in almost a decade (and hated it -- it made me sweat, feel uncomfortable, and scratch) and I dreaded the thought that I might have to revisit it for the Iceland trip just to stay warm. Thank you for the alternate suggestion.

Kim,

You mention "soft shell" in a manner that it is different from a "rain pant" but per this link, the pant has both (so is that 2 layers in one?)

Softshell clothing is usually water-resistant, but not fully waterproof, and more comfortable to wear.

Hardshell layers are fully waterproof and they are what you need to put on when you get rain in Iceland (or maybe at the waterfalls). In an Icelandic rainstorm a pair of softshell pants will be quickly soaked.
