Exactly what I was looking for

It's a lightweight, packable pair of rain pants. They're super lightweight, ridiculously packable. These pants can pack down into their own pocket, and then you can still compress them down about halfway again-- I put them in the hood of my (also lightweight) rain jacket and then cinch it down tight, but you could also pretty easily just throw these guys in your pocket. I haven't had them for long enough to speak to their durability, but they feel solid, and held up well during both hiking and bike commuting in heavy rains. Added bonus-- they're a great fit, just loose enough to go over whatever pants you're wearing (although it might take a little coaxing over a heavyweight pair of jeans) without looking balloon-y or (more importantly for me) getting caught up and ripped in my chain. All in all, they're exactly what I'm looking for as a do-it-all packable pair of rainpants.
