Pretty good rain pants

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BigAndy from Southern California on Sunday, March 13, 2011
I bought these pants to complete my waterproof outer layer, something lightweight and packable(in its own pocket) to have in case of rain while fishing or out camping. Not sure how breathable they are, but I didn't buy them for performance activities so it's not a big deal to me if they aren't, although some side zip vents would be a nice addition. I haven't actually stood out in the rain yet, but I did do the shower test with these along with my upper shell and came out dry. Water just shakes right off. They seem durable enough for my intended use. I bought an XL to be able to put on over clothes and it worked out nicely, except the waist is a little on the small side even with a size up.
