These pants are great, they will keep you dry! Lightweight, breathable, and affordable, I may buy another pair. Sizing is accurate I am 5'5 and bought a size xs which fit

Exactly what I expected!
I live in Portland and am an avid bike rider, so I needed something waterproof to get me through the rainy season. These pants are perfect! They're roomy enough that I can wear Under Armor or sweats underneath when it's cold and light enough that I can wear them in the spring and fall as well. Good fit... I'm pear-shaped but have a small waist, and these were not too tight or too loose anywhere.

These pants will keep you dry through everything
I wore these pants for a two week backpacking trip through Patagonia, and we spent a LOT of time in rain/snow. The pants kept me totally try, no issues at all with water leakage. We also went over pretty rough terrain where I sometimes had to slide on my behind, and I was pleasantly surprized that they didn't rip when dragged over the roots and rocks. Overall, the quality is great. I'm normally an XS and I bought a Small so that I could pull them up over my hiking pants, and it worked perfectly. They also can be compressed into a pretty small bundle for packing and travelling. The only reason I rated them down for comfort is because the pants would be so much easier to pull on and off if they had buttons or zips down the sides, so the legs could be opened up without having to take off your hiking boots. Definitely something I will be looking for in my next pants. But overall, other than that minor update, these pants are great.

comfortable and functional
These are great rainpants at a great price. I have not really put them to a "durability" test. But, they seem durable. The only dissapointment to me is that the ankle area does not close completely. There is a little velcro band that helps to close it up some, but not all the way. It would be nice to have that closed all the way to keep splashes from getting in. This is the only feature that knocked it down from 5 stars to 4. The fit is great -- relaxed and roomy, and yet don't look ridiculously huge. They are very lightweight, easy to roll-up and carry. Nice little inside pocket too, for keeping small things (cash) handy and dry. I love the mesh lining -- really helps with ventilation. And, they are totally water-proof. Love them!

Good deal for the Money
Spent a day snow hiking in these and they were great. I usually wear a small but got a medium and they fit over jeans just great. It would be nice to have pass through pockets and side zippers but then the price would go up. For the money they are just fine.
