Great Lightweight Rain Pants

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Busted Yuppie from Pacific Northwest on Tuesday, August 7, 2012
First off, I would have given these 5 stars, but I haven't had the privilege of trying them out in the rain yet. Therefore I have no idea of rain performance, yet.(I am retired and now I've turned into a fair-weather hiker, because I can now!)

I first bought a pair of these in the wrong size (XL-too large) and after holding onto them and never using them for two seasons, I returned them thanks to STP's fabulous return policy. I now have them in the correct size.
They fit well over a pair of pants or shorts with a little room to spare. The large fits my 5'10" 205 lb. frame very well.
These pants are light weight, but not "ultra-light" so they are beefy enough for bushwhacking as long as it isn't through thorny bushes. Fabric, stitching and construction is very good for most uses Spring-Summer-Fall. They pack up small too.
I like the charcoal color real well too. Goes with my Bonfire colored Mountain Hardwear Dry-Q jacket real well. :)
