Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too wide for shorter women I bought these to replace my old worn out Marmot Precip pants for backcountry telemarking. (Loved my old Precips, but I found that their newer version was a stiffer, crinklier, less comfortable material.) I had high hopes for the Talusphere since my husband really likes his. However, it turns out they are way too wide for a shorter person like me. I am pretty normally proportioned at 5 ft tall and 110 lbs. The length of the small petite size was perfect, but they appear to be about twice as wide as a normal 5 foot woman. This makes them very uncomfortable to wear as, even with the waist cinched up as far as it will go, they twist around my waist and on down my legs. Guess I'll send them back and make due with the Precips. Hopefully that material will soften with wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry & comfortable Enjoyed wearing these over coords and jeans when traveling in drizzly/rainy Scotland. Easy to take on and off. Didn't use the bungee cord on the bottom so the bottoms of my pants got a bit wet, but I've learned for next time. I'm 5'3" and the length was perfect on me. Bought a second pair for my 5'4" husband, since the men's short pants be bought were too long on him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Multi-Purpose Winter Outdoor Pants I purchased these pants in petite for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter hiking. I already have long underwear in 3 weights for downhill skiing so I figured they might work under the Talusphere pants. Wow! I couldn't be happier! The Talusphere pants are stretchy and don't bind. The sizing is pretty true. Right now, I'm between a 10-12 and the Medium fits just a tad snug. (Nothing 5-10 pounds won't fix.) I'm almost 5'3" and the length is perfect. All the features REI built into these pants are amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect rain pants I just tested my new rain pants on a wet West Virginia weekend. The size and length are as you described, and the drawstring waist is easy to adjust. They repelled the rain beautifully and were actually comfortable.

Can these be worn for snowshoeing?

Asked by: Amanita
These pants can be worn for snowshoeing. They are a non-insulated, waterproof breathable shell so we recommend pairing them with long underwear for warmth.

Do both legs zip up and down for removing boots? The description makes it sound like just the left leg zips all the way.

Asked by: traveler
I bought these REI Talusphere Full Zip pants on May 19, 2017. Mine have two-way zippers on both the left leg and the right leg You can zip it up (pull zipper up from the bottom hem) to easily put on or remove shoes. You can also zip down (pull zipper down from the waist) to vent or make it easier to put on these pants. You can also completely unzip it (pull the zipper from the bottom up to the top/waist) to separate the front side leg from the back side leg; this complete separation can be done on both the left leg and the right leg.
