Rated4out of5byChicago Dan the backpackerfromGood, not greatI bought these because they were the cheapest waterproof shells I could find. I used them to climb Mt. Rainier; they held up really well and kept me dry. I would purchase these pants again, it's just a shame how expensive it is to get durable waterproof protection.
I really dislike not having a front zipper (probably doesn't matter if you are a female). This missing feature makes getting the pants on and off a pain.

Rated5out of5byMehmetfromComfortable and convenient to useI use it in our weekly hikes where we gain approximately 4000 ft almost all the time. At high elevations, we have lots of snow and at lower we have lots of rain. So far, no problem at all. Kept me comfortable and dry. The zippers on the sides are covered internally and externally which was not the case for the previous version of this product (external cover). But in this version, they have closed both sides which is pretty good. The pockets are very handy and helpful during a hike. In summary, I recommend it.
