These are an update to Motiv's Kinetic Trousers, originally produced in collaboration with Japanese designer Tomohiro Koyama, with slight tweaks to the fit and several alterations made to the finishing details in order to properly compliment the waterproof fabric. The Mod. Kinetic Trousers feature a high rise and tapered leg, with a comfortable top block and fairly relaxed thigh. The waistband is fully adjustable, with partially-elasticated locking zip tabs at each hip that can be used to tighten or relax the fit in seconds.

They've almost got more pleats than we can mention, with reverse-pleated front pockets, knee pleats, and large side pleats that run the full length of the leg, terminating in a zipper and snap cuff that can be opened for additional ventilation or to cuff the leg more easily - the end result is an extremely seamless and anatomical fit, that both looks and feels great to wear.

They're made from a 100% wool waterproof fabric, developed by the Woolmark Company. A completely natural waterproof weave, it's produced by stretching the individual wool fibers with specialized equipment before allowing it to shrink and set, achieving extreme density that cannot be attained with conventional weaving methods. Being an entirely natural fabric, it also breathes and drapes exceptionally well, especially when compared to comparably waterproof synthetics.

It should also go without saying that a 100% wool waterproof fabric is far more sustainable than a synthetic counterpart, with a far lower environmental impact to produce. We also want to make clear that "waterproof" and "water-resistant" are distinct categories - being waterproof, this fabric is able to completely resist moisture, with vulnerable areas like seams reinforced with tape to keep water out and near full body coverage.

Accompanying that waterproof fabric is waterproof design, featuring taped seams through the entire interior, and waterproof external zippers anywhere that might be exposed to water. The other hardware is solid stainless steel, from the buttons to the snaps, with lightweight cotton ripstop pocket bags for durability.

Fits true to size. Dry clean only.
