exactly what I needed for day hiking the Rockies

I am currently using these pants as my rain gear while day-hiking in the Indian Peaks range behind Boulder, CO. They are relatively light weight, very waterproof, easy to slip on and off. These do not have full-length zippers on the side (which I did not want) but do have 8" zippers at the cuff for extra room over hiking boots if necessary. They do NOT have a waist tightening system, but have elastic for gripping your waist. I got a larger size than my normal day pants in order to be able to slip them over my normal light weight pants/shorts. I use suspenders to hold pants for comfort, which works GREAT! Yesterday, I wore them all day long and thought they worked perfectly from day-hiking to dinner. I would purchase these again. They would work well as daily pants if needed and purchased to correct size. I preferred the rain-pant pull-over approach.
