Dry and Warm on the Narrows
These pants came through when hiking in 40 degree water in Utah's Zion Narrows. Water did seep in ever so slightly on the ankles, but overall I highly recommend these pants if you will be trekking through rivers or facing extremely foul weather.
These are well made pants. I would have liked them to have a fuller cut, though. I used them once to date (weather finally cooling off to require pants) with a pair of SealSkinz socks with Chaco sandles. My feet kept dry. The pants are super-light and take up zero space. I Matched it up with a Kokatat Paclite pullover. I also like the pocket for my car keys. I only rate them a 4 because of the cut. Otherwise, they are a quality pant.
Kokatat Paclite Paddling Pants
Atlantic and Long Island waters are cool year-round, rarely calm, so I looked for paddling pants that give me the most user options. My Kokatat Paclites are cut wide and loose for a great unrestricted fit. They do not result in overheating and they shed water. Plus, I've used them on hikes during thunder storms. I combine my Paclites with a short-sleeve dry top for most conditions.
