We were coring rock in the dead of winter in the Colorado Rockies and were using the nearby creek as a water source. The water pump had been left on the river ice from the day before and I went to retrieve it. Unfortunately the water level had dropped overnight and both legs went through the rotten ice, and I was in freezing water up to my knees. Thankfully, my tin pants formed a seal with my boots, and kept me completely dry. I worked the rest of the day in and out of that frozen creek. It would have been a miserable day if I had not been wearing my Tin Pants. Clearly with Filson, you get truly waterproof garments.
