Verified Buyer Reviewed by bike/foot commuter--likes to stay dry:-) from boston, ma on Friday, January 27, 2012
I bought these to slip over pants to bike/walk to work in, and for similar use hiking or camping in the future. I've used them walking to work in a downpour and gotten there with dry coorderoys undernear and they were dry within minutes! They slip over pants nicely. The seams really are well reinforced and the zip pocket is great. It does sit low, but I think that's actually nice so it doesn't rub against your leg. I am 5" tall and these fit me on the smallest snap setting at the ankle (so they can bunch and stay up), but would be fine for someone of average height on a different snap setting or not bunchy if snappest at tightest.

These fit me great--I am a usually about a size 10 in pants and was looking to wear these over pants. Usually I'm on the edge between a medium and large for S/M/L/XL sized bottoms. I ordered a large just to be sure they wouldn't be too small and would fit over clothes and they JUST do. So they work great for me, but they're probably a slightly snugger large. If you're teetering between sized guess up if you want to layer underneath.
