Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JC VABeach from Virginia Beach on Thursday, December 17, 2015Very well made rain pants. Top notch material and hardware. They have features that aren't apparent in the pictures like full length separating side zips on the leg side seams that zip up from the bottom or down from the top, cuffs at the bottom inside the legs that wrap around the ankles and fasten with hook & loop and snap fasteners keep moisture from coming up the legs, reinforcing patches on the rear of the bottom hem of the legs to fight wear and fraying and suspenders that fasten with secure non-metallic fasteners. Downside is that they take a little more time to don than just sticking your feet in the legs and pulling them up. Upside means that they are well suited to combating very wet conditions. Only thing dryer are waders.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by geohacker from LA on Saturday, October 17, 2015They fit great and have plenty of movement range (I can easily bend over and kneel in them) and don't break the bank. They're water proof while sitting on wet benches at the game and the suspenders are perfect at holding them up. They look durable and I'll probably give 'em a good workout during El Nino. Get them before it's too late.
Reviewed by Oregon Hiker from Oregon on Friday, August 14, 2015I was very impressed with the overall quality, and for winter or a campsite setting, I would recommend them. The suspenders were easy to detach if you did not want them. Zippers and attachments are well made. They have sewn-in gaters and full length zippers.
If I went out on a day hike the weight and bulk would likely keep me from lugging them along. I question the "pack-friendly weight" in the description They are kind of bulky and a bit heavy for packing along.They definitely would not pack down into a pocket.
Also, I tried them out on a warm summer day and they were too warm for me. Maybe if it was raining I would have been comfortable, but, over jeans or other pants, I think they would be pretty warm.
I decided they would be best for winter use or in a more fixed campsite setting. I guess that is why the are called "base camp pants".
Verified Buyer Reviewed by bonita angler from florida on Saturday, June 6, 2015Looked good, but didn't fit. Returned.
Reviewed by Eagle from CA on Thursday, March 27, 2014Fit very well, comfortable. I was worrying the straps might affect when I carry a bag, but they are not.
Not very light weighted, but feels quite free and easy when put on, can't wait to hike with them!
Question & Answer
Questions about this product? Get answers from community and staff experts.
“To follow up on last question, more specifically - when zipped/closed are the pant legs cut to accommodate a regular boot or shoe? I will not be skiing in these and would be using them as a field rain pant with regular boots or shoes”
You can wear them with regular shoes or boots, they will not fit snug around the ankle since they are designed to fit snugly around the top of a ski boot.
“Are the legs cut to wear around a snow boot or ski boot, or will they work fine with regular boots and shoes. The last three waterproof pants I have bought seem to be more ski pants with flared out ankles.”
Pant legs open to accomodate ski boots.
“Do the built-in gaiters mean additional gaiters are not necessary in deep snow with these pants? I just can't visualize how it works :-)”
They are like most ski pants that have a gaiter that fits over your ski boot. If you were wearing hiking boots you would need external gaiters.
“Would these pants be too warm for backpacking and hiking during the summer months in temperatures ranging from 60 to 80 degrees?”
They are not insulated but they are made of fairly heavy material and are lined. They may be fine in 60 degree temperatures, but may be a bit warm at 80 degree temperatures.
“I was hoping to get some specifics on the gaitors. Do they fold down from inside the pants or something?”
They fold down from the inside of the lower pant leg.
