not for days when it is just nuking! I now live in UT and have worn them in all conditions with great success, long length side zips are great for temperature control on the skinner, but if I were in the Pacific NW I would likely go with something a bit more waterproof. we can kind of get away with murder here in UT.
I am 6'1" and a medium is perfect. (seems like patagonia and OR share sizing for the most part)
