These seem awesome, fit is right on
I am writing these before wearing the pants extensively because in looking around myself I really needed tips on sizing. And, I wear rain pants for such brief spans here in the CO Rockies that it would take long to assess this. I actually have the last year version, The Mountain Cohesion Pant, but I called the manufacturer who said they are identical except for the stretchierc knee etc material on these new Stretch Cohension Pants. (He said the new stretch material also increases breathability, so these new ones are probably even better.) Anyway, I am writing largely to help those needing sizing info, so I wrote this review here despite last years model. They seem excellently made. They just glide on. I tried the zippers and they don't tend to stick. I did a lot of comparison and believe the extra couple ounces over other choices is definately worth having the long zip. I tried on others, and these are sooo much easier to get on. I read they were big but did not find them so at all. Rain pants are made to go over regular pants and still allow good movement, which these do. They also look cute, unlike many.
I am usually a small, can occasionally be an extra small. I am
5'2 3/4", 113#, natural waist 27", hips at widest point 37". The small allows lots of free movement while not looking balloon-y or dorky. They are a perfect length with shoes or boots. They fold up quite small. I am really excited about them.
