Rated 5 out of 5 by from raid pants 40 inch waist in their "full" size is a perfect fit for an old guy trying to relive his glory days in the outdoors. Thanks KUHL for, unlike other outdoors clothing companies, you still make clothing that will fit guys who are a little out of shape and but not yet over the hill. A great pants that have just enough stretch to make the comfortable. They can be worn as casual pant indoors and the black color gives them a sense of style. I now have a second pair and have worn them in Iceland in winter and Arizona in summer....I was perfectly comfortable in both environs... Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking pant Quiet (no rustle with movement), cool pants for hiking (cooler than the other pair of Kuhl's I have). Fell hard on steep, rugged trail and scuffed knees. Dirt did not come out with brisk brushing while on trail. However, washed and they look good as new. Raven is black. Would buy other, lighter colors if available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for ice climbing. I was looking for a good shell for ice climbing up in Montana. These kept me dry and warm with just a medium baselayer underneath during my 2 day ice climbing trip. And the allowed movement necessary to climb comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, easy fit. Love em. Light, fit well. Like these type of bottoms because they fit like pants, jogging bottoms and training pants all in one.

I'm looking for pants I can use for skiing on sunny days. I typically wear a pair of water-repellant cargo-style hiking pants along with a soft shell jacket. Do the Raid pants repel water and resist wind well enough to meet my needs?

Asked by: Dan122
The Raid pants are made from a comfortable nylon/spandex technical soft-shell fabric features 4-way stretch. They are also coated with a durable water repellent finish (DWR). They will do a decent job of blocking wind but do not have any sort of windproof rating.
