There are few sensations more wretched than the feeling of sopping-wet, freezing-cold denim weighing down on your thighs. But no amount of fist-shaking at the skies will circumvent Murphy’s Law of sudden, unexpected downpours, especially when you’re stranded on a bike path just south of Nowhere. Enter the new Epic Drover by Howies, an organic cotton jean that also happens to be water-resistant, meaning that raindrops will bead and slide off your legs instead of soaking through.
Howies’s patented Epic cotton is derived from an “encapsulation process” (per the company) that coats each individual fiber with an ultra-thin layer of environmentally safe, solvent-free, water-repellent polymer. It only looks and feels like regular denim, but it behaves like a high-tech performance fabric.

The jean itself, based on Howies’s bestselling Drover design, comes with a classic five-pocket fit, a button waist and fly, and triple stitching.
Gray skies are gonna clear up…
