Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rain pant, but not for high aerobic activities For walking around the city (yeah, Vancouver) in a downpour, walking the dog, or light activities, fantastic pant. Super light, and packable. But for uphill hikes, snowshoeing, cycling hills--anything strenuous--go with the Beta AR, or even the Alpha SL with the side venting zippers. As the product description says, for emergency use when the weather turns. PacLite can be a bit clammy when you get warm-especially against skin. Not bad with a base layer underneath. Warning...if you wear these pants and your shoes aren't waterproof, your feet will get soaked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Heavy Rain & Snow These are a very high quality, light and durable pair of pants worth the money. I originally got these as an basic rain pant, but have used them for extended periods in harsh conditions. They are waterproof, light, and pack easily. I personally like the draw string waist style, as it can fit around other clothing should you be layering without making it uncomforable. They slip on and off without any issues. They also have adjustable features at the bottoms around the boots to keep mud from going up into the legs. I used them with a pair of wicking leggings for about 5 days straight of rain/mud and snow. very comfortable, windproof, and durable. I sat on rocks, mud, trees, etc for extended periods without any issues. I personally feel they would be fine in very harsh conditions, but am aware Arcteryx has other pants with more features for that lifestyle, and am sure they work even better. Only drawback if I had one is there arent any pockets to stash gear. Not a deal breaker by any means.
