very lightweight, great value

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Stimpy from Boston area on Friday, January 7, 2011
For extended backpacking trips, you've got to have a pair of waterproof pants. These are very lightweight, fully waterproof, pretty breathable, and nicely featured. I would like to have had full length leg zippers, but can live with them as is for this great price. Fit: I'm kind of in between a med and large, so I started with a large; but had to exchange it for a medium. They are so light and they pack down so small that it's easy to take them along on any hike. For my trips, I hope these will stay in my pack (ie I hope it doesn't rain at all) but if it does, I'm confident these will keep me warm and dry around camp or on the trail.
