Italian manufactured canvas waterproof pants...not Gore-tex or MVP
Made from what seems to be some form of fine waterproofed canvas (think tightly woven lightweight awning material). Not sure what connection these have to the French military, definitely Italian in origin. Unfortunately, these are nowhere near as light or breathable as Gore-Tex or MVP but they are well made. Seams are well sealed. No question these will keep you dry. I'm a 38" waist with a 32" inseam and these are quite large on me, easily could be used as overpants. Probably best for cool weather use.
