Low-Cost Packable Rain Pants

Reviewed by Michael from Colorado on Friday, June 12, 2015
I ordered these pants in a size Medium along with the matching jacket. I am 5'11" and 150 lbs, and the size Medium was perfect for me. Roomy enough to fit over my street clothes and not too long in the legs. This is your basic rain gear, with a windbreaker material and a rubbery coating on the inside. They come with a nice stuff sack, but they ship in the stuff sack and come out super wrinkled.

I am unsure about the reach-through pockets. One one hand, this is a a great feature. But I feel like the pocket openings should have a zipper or hook-and-loop (velcro) to hold them shut. They are just wide open and it seems like rain could easily get in. In the end, I decided to return these and the jacket and will look for a higher end rain shell, but these should be fine if you just want a cheap and packable rain suit.
