REI Alpine Lakes Rain Pants - Women'sis rated4.0out of5by3.
Rated5out of5bysfromGreat pantsWork at school and pants are easy on/off when I need to go outside/inside with students and can't let them out of my sight. Pants work great as a snow pant for sledding. Warm but never hot!

Rated4out of5byJayne Hiking AddictfromWorks for cold weather tooI needed something over my pants to help keep me warm for winter hiking/snow shoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park. For me ski pants don't work because I usually get warmer as I hike and I can't take them off.
I hiked there 5 days in January, 2013. Some days there was a wind chill below zero with 40 mph winds. I wore my hiking pants, light flannel pants and these rain pants. Perfect! When I got hot I unzipped them and when we stopped or I got cold I zipped them back up.
I bought them larger than normal so I could get pants under them and still hike.
The down side is the waist. Because the pants were big the waist was way too big. Luckily I wear a waist pack rather than a back pack. I would make sure the rain pants were pulled up high before attaching my pack. Another option would be suspenders I suspect.
They have a thin lining which I wish they did not. I think they will be too hot for summer use but we will see.

Rated3out of5bylik2bikfromWould be great except.....the tabs don't really hold. You can use them to get a snug fit in the waist - but they don't hold too well when you start moving. Have been looking for a breathable, windproof, waterproof and comfortable pant that I could wear over some fleece pants for winter weather dog walking, shoveling, etc but that aren't ski/snowboard pants or hot sweaty thin rain pants. Haven't found them yet.
