    Venture vs PreCip pants

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S

    I bought these and the Marmot PreCip half-zips to compare. I ended up keeping the Marmots. Sorry I can't compare their field performance, but here is what I noticed about them in try ons:

    These NF pants are more flattering (well, flattering for rain pants, it's all relative) than the Marmots with their flat front waist. I am slender and short-waisted, so the lack of all around elastic might be less comfortable for others. The NF fabric is also slightly thicker than Marmot's, which might mean better longevity. These NF pants DO pack into a pocket (contrary to another review). The zips on these are slightly longer, however neither pair actually allows me to put them on over boots.

    All that said, I returned these and kept the PreCips because the seams around the NF leg zips are not taped (seams on the sides and crotch area are taped). Additionally, the PreCips have an elastic pull-cord with toggle around the ankles to cinch the pants in. Finally, I got the PreCips at a slightly lower price.

    Lightweight and all right

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small petite

    Have not had the chance to really see these in the rain. they are lightweight easy to wear and seems to be very versatile. could probably use in rain and snow / warm pants.

    Keeps Me Dry

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    Yes, these pants do what they were hired for, but have some drawbacks. I got an XS, and I can unzip the bottom zippers and manage to get these pants off and over my hiking boots, but the zippers don't go up high enough, so it's a struggle. Also though the front pockets are a good thing, there's no self-packing pocket, if you get my drift. The fit is excellent for my puny frame.

    Rain Pants

    • Fit: True to size

    These pants fit great and look great on, bought them for my daughter-in-law for Xmas, she wanted something to wear fishing and to football games to keep out the rain, hopefully this will take care of that. liked them so much order a pair for myself. Shipped fast!!!

    Don't throw a shoe!

    No need to take shoes on and off after rainy dog walks! Fully unzip these babies and they slide right over your shoes or you can unzip and detach both sides for easy hanging and drying. The zippers are bomber, after 2 years of use, not a single issue...

    Don't throw a shoe!

    Good, comfortable rain paints

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Really love these rain pants. I ordered XL because they were out of L and they turned out to be a little too big but it's not a problem. They fit over my regular pants great and are extremely waterproof. As soon as I take them off all I have to do is give them a quick shake and almost all of the water comes off! Highly recommend these pants.

    great pants

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I play golf in sydney australia and we've had a wet 12 months-these pants are unbelievable as they keep the legs completely dry. It's a coastal course and we get these sideways winds and the pants provide great protection from the wet

    Will these pants work for light snow. Live in the south.

    I am 6 feet female, will these pants fit me!? Slender fit.... What is the inseam on the medium vs the large!?!?!?
