I keep these 6 oz pants in my pack as emergency gear. The breathability is such that I would not consider taking them on a trip where I anticipated wearing them. On those occasions I take Gore Tex. But, they are cheap, they are light and they shed water. For now, they have a place in my pack.

I had heavy rain gear, but they were too warm for over 55 degrees, so they light duty rain gear suit me perfect for warmer weather. I was out golfing and we got a light rain and these pants did good. I haven't had a chance to try them out in pouring rain yet. But, I plan to use these hiking, running and golfing in the warmer weather. They have pockets. They have snaps on the bottom of the pants that lets you adjust to whatever.

I used these pants on a 300-mile bike trip this summer, and they worked well for my purposes. They are light, pack pretty small, and work pretty well for occasional rain. During a full 2 days of rain at the end of my trip, I did get wet underneath the pants, but it was tough to tell if that was sweat or rain. Regardless, I would definitely recommend them for hiking or biking trips where you would run into occasional rain. They are also pretty comfortable.
