I bought these cause I walk outside every day through sunshine, rain, super storms, & snow. I really needed real real waterproof pants!!! These looked awesome. But unfortunately, the zipper quality was terrible... the front zipper got stuck on the bottom & popped right off. The zippers on the side with the velcro is super annoying, the unzipping was impossible cause of the velcro! The side zippers also got stuck a lot on the inner lining which was also very frustrating lol
- the pants fabric material is great. Sturdy, thick, & heavy duty.
- side zippers & velcro combo: just made putting on the pants a chore..., they also got stuck on the inner lining ever inch or so LOL
- front zipper: got stuck on 1st try & popped off... leaving them useless
- too much velcro everywhere (i rather have buttons or something)

i was looking for an multi-day overnight pack in the 4,000+ cubic inches range that would not be too heavy. This is it. On top of that it has many nice extra features: adjustable torso length, pack cover, side zippered compartments, expandable top, water bottle pockets.........
The instructions were great for torso adjustment and the pack is very comfortable on my old hips. The hip belt is easy to adjust.
Just a great all-around big pack!
