dry light pants

Reviewed by mountain trekker from Alaska on Sunday, July 6, 2014
I received these today, so keep that in mind. I just got back from a one-hour walk in moderate rain with intermittent waist-high grass and one very close encounter with a cow moose. The pants performed flawlessly. They kept me totally dry and breathed well.
The fit of my medium pair on the snug side. I'm 6'1", weight 185, and usually wear medium in these types of clothes. The length is perfect for me, but they're too tight to wear anything but long underwear or tights underneath. If that's a necessity, size up.
They're very light - 10 oz. on my digital scale. The fabric probably won't take much of a beating, but that's to be expected from such a light fabric. I bought them primarily for backpacking where weight and weather performance are my primary concerns. I have no doubts they'll meet my expectations.
