- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These work fine to keep rain off for a basic rainpant but aren't anything "special". They're less breathable than I had anticipated and, naturally, not as nice as some of the more expensive pants I have.
They do the trick though for preventing rain from absorbing into your under layers and it's nice to have the ability to stuff them into their own pocket.
