Made the huge mistake of wearing these snowshoeing & was comfortable enough until I peeled them off at the destination hut where I discovered my base layer was saturated with sweat. If it hadn't been unseasonably warm, this could have caused a dangerous hypothermia situation. I'm having a difficult time envisioning a future use for these pants because I can't image myself sitting still in the rain... maybe as an open boat passenger....or strolling in some rainy place. NOT for hiking!
Size M was great for me (5'9" 125#) to be worn over a base layer. Length was fine with hiking boots... what else would one wear with such pants? Cuffs, waist, packability: all nice features.
Would not recommend to a friend because my friends are active too.
