High Value High Performance

These are a nice pair of light duty, waterproof pants. The fabric is lightweight and somewhat breathable. I don't know how they would stand up to heavy backcountry use. Since I already have more technical equipment for extremes, I use them for rainy day walks and light hikes. They would also be good for traveling or carrying in a backpack as they fold up nicely into a small pack.

They are roomy enough to go over a pair of thermals or light to medium weight hiking pants. They kept the rain out reasonably well but do need something under them for warmth. I found a pair of windstopper tights for warmer weather and windstopper fleece for colder temps, the best combinations as they do not stop the wind well.

They do run a bit long but fit true to size.

Overall, I am very pleased with their performance. I bought two pair for myself and my husband.
