Perfect for Price

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Biker in the North from Fairbanks Alaska on Tuesday, June 21, 2011
These pants were exactly what I needed; something to through in my bag when biking that could be used to keep me dry on rainy days. They are an appropriate amount of big to cover whatever I'm wearing without getting puffy and have a closure on the ankles, which has been enough to keep them out of the sprockets thus far. I love how light weight and packable these pants are, though the downside would be that they are flimsy and could easily be ripped. I've only used them about 5 times and wonder if they may eventually loose their waterproof properties, but they would be easy to re-water proof using a granger wash-in product, which I would assume is how they were waterproofed in the first place. I am immensely pleased with the quality if this gear given the reasonableness of the price.

I wouldn't trust them on a fishing boat but they are great for bikes to campus or the store.
