SIZING: I'm female 5'8" 150-155lbs size 6-8 womens jeans. My Husband is almost 6 feet and 160-165 lbs. I originally ordered a small for me and a medium for him but I had to send the smalls back as they were too tight on my hips/thighs (pulled weird across). Apparently the medium mens Precip Pants fit both of us much better. Mediums are quite baggy in the legs and butt on and a little long on me(FEMALE) (without shoes I step on them. Also I can hike them way up to above my belly button with them still covering my legs. I can fit a regular pair of pants underneath them which is good. They fit my husband better: better length and less baggy in butt/hip area. He can still fit a pair of pants under them. We both have good range of motion in them I have to make sure I pull the string tie at the waist to tighten them so they don't slip by my husband doesn't if he doesn't want too. I am able to use the zippers to take on/off the pants with my hiking shoes on but I am a size 9.5 US WOMENS not sure if guys with big feet would have problems or not my husband wears size 12 US MENs but he wears tennis shoes or running shoes not hiking boots

MATERIAL: medium to flat shine, plastic like material. Sprayed it with my hose and the water just beads up and rolls off of it. Unknown to me how much I'll sweat in them but I figure some if I wear in the summer based on fabric, Please note that when you bend down to crouch air escapes from the leg bottoms and top and you make a funny farting noise at times. I guess this confirms that the seals/seams are tightly sealed.

USE: We have not used these yet. We plan to take them with us on camping/hiking trips. We are using them as Emergency Rain gear for our Norway hiking trip Fall 2015. If they cause us to sweat a lot or if they leak I plan to come back and post again if there was a problem. These are nice pants to have if you go fishing and get caught in the rain. pack down/roll up small to stuff in a coat pocket or in boat storage.
