Rated 3 out of 5 by from Zipper on the leg is too short The only issue I have with these pants is that the zipper on the leg is too short. I wanted to use these as outer rain pants to keep in my pack until needed. However, the zipper doesn't even go past the knee. This makes them extremely hard to put on when wearing boots. This is problematic as taking off boots during a hike or climb is a pain, especially when gaiters are being worn. Definitely try them on when wearing your boots prior to purchasing to see how hard it will be to get them on and off while on the go. I still gave them a three star because they are well sealed and waterproofed and the material holds up to abrasion very well (repeatedly sliding on ice and snow).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent rain pants I've owned a pair of these for years and am now ordering a second pair. I use them in the winter as a shell and as rain pants in the summer. They are light weight and the zippers along the legs are very useful for putting them on without having to take off your boots. If I'm overheating I can open the zipper near the top as well.
