I bought these for an upcoming trip to Iceland and Scotland, where the weather warrants a light weight wind break/water protection. After that trip I plan to keep them in my golf bag for sudden weather changes. They were easy to put on over my shoes. I wish the pockets were the kind that allows you to get into the pants pockets underneath, especially for golf.
The light weight of these pant will help with packing for a summer in cooler climates.

Looking for good rainpants to wear over hiking pants, and these have great features -- long side zips, handy pockets, and more breathable fabric than most. However, there is enough room at the waist/hips to accommodate not only an extra pair of pants, but also a few fanny packs underneath. All that extra material about the top is extremely unflattering.

I wear these for light hiking close to home as well as outback distance hiking. They keep me fully comfortable, dry and cute (the wide elastic waistband is super comfortable also clearly defines my waist, even when heavier pants are warn underneath.

Returning, Too long. I ordered 4 different pairs of rain pants. I'm still deciding between the White Sierra and Columbia Q's, all long for my height but the two I'm debating have adjustments at the ankle so I can deal with the extra material.

I was looking for waterproof pants for bicycling and hiking in the rain, and these were not the right pants for me. I could deal with the noisy fabric, but the cut in the waist and belly area was oversized to the point of feeling like clown pants. The bagginess of the waist could be covered with a long jacket, and may be a preferred comfort fit for some, however I sent mine back. I ended up keeping the Mountain Hardware Epic Dry.Q Core Pants, which have a more tailored fit, quieter fabric, and are better for cycling and hiking.
