For reference: I'm 5'3'' at 105lbs with an athletic build. I originally ordered an XS but found that it was too tight around the waistline and exchanged it for a S. I liked Sierra Trading posts quick exchange policy and got the pants the next week. So far it's kept me dry in the snow and can't ask for more.

Although I haven't field tested these yet, it seems like they'll be perfect for my October trip to hike a portion of the Appalachian Trail. I am only 5' tall and the length of pants is always a concern. Once I put on my hiking boots these seem like they'll be perfect--not too long and not too short. I have tested taking them on and off over my hiking boots and the side leg zippers work well for that. Got a great price on these too!

I was looking for a very light layer to go over my hiking pants and not weigh down my pack. These have a lot of zippers and are a heavier weight than i thought they would be. Did not try them in the rain so i can't vouch for their waterproofablilty.

Have not had a chance to use the rain pants, but they fit great and are just as described. I am sure that they will function well. The zipper is longer than I anticipated which is good as I want to fit them easily over hiking and ski boots. The women's medium fits good, i.e. I usually wear women's medium pants, am 5'6",weighing 140 pounds with a muscular build. My spouse ordered the same pants in mens, size large; he is 5"11" tall, weighing 185 pounds. Fit him good also. the only reason that I did not give them a 5 star is because I have not used them outside in the elements.Plan to use them for hiking,biking, kayaking when needed.

Works fine, I tested them in the snow playing with kid for 30 min. As mentioned in other reviews, the sort of do "sounds" when you walk but outside its not that "loud". And definitely they have to be worn on some other pants, they are not fitted to be worn individually.
