From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Windpants are a sportswear variety of trousers (pants) intended for wearing without undergarments and for athletic and comfort purposes.


Windpants, also known as windbreakers, are light and serve to shield the wearer from cold wind rather than to insulate. Windpants are almost always made out of polyester or nylon. Some have polyester tricot. Most types of windpants have a cotton inner liner and no fly, because of this, undergarments are not required while wearing windpants. Due to natural friction against both itself and one's legs, windpants make "swishing" sounds during walking or running. Windpants often have zippers on each ankle, allowing athletes to unzip the end of each leg to pull the pants over their footwear. Some windpants have zippers that run the full length so the pants can be simply unzipped entirely; in this case, shorts are normally worn underneath. Windpants can also protect the wearer from elements such as mud and water; this gives them the nickname "Splash Pants". Windpants are also commonly worn while sick or travelling because they are so easy to move around in and are very comfortable.
