Looking forward to testing my Optima pants

Verified Buyer Reviewed by AuthorJamesMichaelRice from TheBridgewaterTriangle on Thursday, May 26, 2016
I bought these for summer camping in Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire, as well as an upcoming trip to Nepal. I am 5' 11", 185 lbs, and they fit me just fine. They are a bit long at the ankle, but that is fine when I have my hiking boots on. They are a little "noisy" when walking (sort of like snow pants), though the alternative (getting soaked) is worth the racket. Although I've yet to test these, I have one knock, and that is the absence of belt loops. They are snug enough on me, but I would still like the option to keep them in place with a belt. But hey, they're Gore-Tex and the price was right, so as long as they keep the water out I'm happy.
