Love these pants!

    I bought a pair of these to try, and have gotten several more! Love the low waist (but not too low), which has soft material lining the waist band for hiking comfort. Flat cargo pockets are functional and don't make you look like you are wearing bulky man-pants. Light rain beads off material. Sizing seems true- I have size 6 which fits my 5 1/2", 133 lb frame. Works well over running tights if extra warmth required for lower temps.

    oops- the review i gave was for the mountain hardware convertible pant, which zippers off below the knee. I also have the Mt. Hardware rain pant-which is the cohesion pant. Bought size M which is a little big for my size 6, but fits great over the convertible pant/other layers as necessary (small was a good fit, but not roomy enough to fit over layers). Full length zipper makes them easy on/off over boots, also allows various venting options. Great pants.

    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.

      I'm looking for a pair of pants that I can wear on my bike rides in the there a way to cinch the hem of the leg so I don't get caught up in the chain?

      Are these pants 100% waterproof? I am not sure what the waterproof ratings mean. They look like the nicest fitting, non balloony rainpants i've seen. I'd like to buy a pair but need them to be waterproof.

      I have seen these pants on sale on different sites but would prefer to purchase through backcountry. Are they going on sale any time soon?
