Futurelight is fantastic and these pants come really close to being keepers. First, the good. Futurelight is comfortable, breathable and quiet when walking. It is easy to forget you have rain pants on when wearing the Dryzzles, not the case with my Marmot PreCips which are not as comfortable or breathable and make a crinkling noise when walking. I also really appreciate that TNF offers them in short lengths. Unfortunately, there is also not-so-good. Unlike the PreCips, there are no side pockets. And, unlike the PreCips, these pants don't fully unzip all the way from top to bottom though they come close enough to a full zip that getting them on and off without removing your shoes seems completely feasible, particularly in combination with the front zipper. So far, the positives of these pants easily outweigh the negatives. Unfortunately, there is one more negative and it is a deal killer: lifting my knees as though I am taking a big step up pulls the back of the pants down. This is not true of any of my other pants including the PreCips. It is a shame. For me, it ruins an otherwise excellent pair of pants.

Great review
