Order two sizes larger to wear over pant

Reviewed by Buttercup AT 2007 from Missouri, USA on Monday, December 19, 2011
I bought these to wear for rainy hiking expecting moderate to steep inclines. I'm 5'5", athletic 135 lbs. and STP recommended to go up one size and that it is classic fit. I wear size 8 hiking pants and so bought size 10 in these. They fit over my hiking pants and I can squat down in them okay, but the knee is very stiff and they fit slim (waist 27" and no extra room in there). I like the overall quality and so I'm exchanging for a size 12 and hopefully my knees can bend properly.
