Makani means wind (or winds) in Hawaiian.  With altitudes as high as 13,802 feet (4207m), the temperature on the Island of Hawai’i is not always warm and either are many of the 41 named winds that blow as a result of the extreme geography formed by the five volcanoes of which the island is comprised; Kohala, Mauna Kea, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, and Kīlauea.  For many other parts of the world too, this pant and jacket combination will insulate you well as an outer layer, and for just about any outdoor workout, sport, or activity.

Sizing: Please refer to the size chart button above and to the garment measurements listed by size below.  
Fit Type: Stretch fabric permits comfortable performance fit without it being baggy.

Makani wind paint

As advertised they are a little long and needed hemmed. Besides that there great.

Nice pants!

I like the fabric and it appears it will be durable. The cut is on the slim and long, of which I am neither. I’m not fat by any means, but these pants seemed sized for ultra runners and such. A little snug pulling up over my hips. Once there, they are not binding at all, in fact, very comfortable. The legs are also long. I just cuff them up like 3 inches. Maybe one day I’ll get my sister, a seamstress, to shorten them. Again, sized for thin, long legged runner types. Nevertheless, I’m quite satisfied with them.

Makani Wind Pant

Purchased along with the jacket as a set. These are incredibly comfortable and performing as expected.

So versatile!!!

I have to say, I have a hard time deciding whether I like these more for business casual or athletic activities...

Warm and light in strong winds

Another great Desoto product. Warm as toast on a run and even worn on the bike. Plus you can wear them going to the store. I’m glad I purchased the set. The jacket is great also. I continue to purchase Desoto, due to a quality product.
