I'm really disappointed in my purchase. I bought these pants to use as a waterproof layer is gentle conditions. I have worn these while biking to work a couple of times when it has been misting outside, and each time I arrived to work completely soaked. These are not waterproof as described, and they couldn't even handle a gentle mist of rain. I'm totally disappointed. They are also really tight around the waist and hard to get on.

Birthday present for my gall did not disappoint. Got her a Large Short. She’s 38” round the waist and 5’ 8” tall. The Large fit perfectly around the waist with room to tighten or loosen with the strings. The length also perfect at 40”. Good Velcro straps around the ankles to tighten around your boots if need be.

....because years down the road when they wear out, they won't be available. I am 5'9", weight 128, and they fit perfectly. I add some long johns for colder skiing, and vent with the side zips for spring skiing. So few pants fit me! After 4 winters they are still perfect for me. I do spray water repellent on the seat area and on the top of the quadriceps area for wet days. I haven't "put them thru the wringer" because I take good care of them; but I use them 20+ times per year for skiing.

I’m 5’ 7” the regular length would have fit my 6’ 4” tall husband and still have extra fabric. The pants waist was huge and came up to my brassiere. The ankle area had abundant fabric. The pull on waist was ridiculous. And, size medium was HUGE! Absolutely a waste of time ordering these pants. I’m accustomed to the Velcro and Zip hip fasteners, these pants had none. The size medium was large, the flimsy tie inside the waistband was thinner than a lace on my sneakers, and the overall fit was definitely not designed for a woman. I can’t wait to return these useless pants! I just want to scream. Ahhh!!!! Also, let me add for size reference I’m 5’ 7” 125-130lbs and a size 4-6 in women’s clothing.

I needed rain pants to bring to Scotland that I could throw on over shorts or jeans when nec.. Obviously they couldn't be too fitted, but these work & are still reasonably flattering. I'm 5'5" & 120 lbs; it was a bit of a Goldilocks moment trying to nail down the size: the smalls fit nicely, but not over anything else; the mediums worked but were too long; but the medium/short length was perfect!

How were these for Scotland?

These are nice pants that are definitely wind and rain proof. They're just not what I was looking for. They are big and baggy, not at all flattering. I don't care so much about that, but I felt like I was a balloon in them and was uncomfortable. I tried a medium first, sent back and tried the small. The small was snug around my waist, but pants were still very baggy. I was very disappointed as they look perfect online! FYI...I am 5'9" and the regular length is perfect.

I wore this pants while kayaking. My leg started to feel kinda wet after 1 hour of kayaking (kayaked total 3 hours). Even after the 3 hours, my legs weren't too wet. The thing that impressed me the most was how fast it dried.

Used these in varying conditions while traveling around Iceland for a little over a month. They worked great in the rainy conditions and made life sooo much easier! I loved having these on--they almost made me feel invincible. Accidentally sat in sheep poop? No problem! Just dump some water on and all clean. They don't breath terribly well, but they are rain pants after all... I never found myself too uncomfortable in them in terms of breathability, though. I didn't listen to North Face's size chart and ordered a small (5'4" with athletic thighs, I usually wear a size S, 4, or 6 depending on the brand) instead of the suggested medium. Though they were a bit snug in the butt, I found they moved really well and ended up being the perfect fit. As for quality, I found they were great; I slid down a snow-covered mountain without any issues. I did run into an issue, however, when I sat on a glacier and the sharp ice punched a hole in the butt. Bummed about that, but a bit of duct tape could solve the problem if needed.

I concur! Just wrapping up our Iceland adventure and these pants were perfect! I’m 5’6” 130lb and small for great!

Tried both the Medium and the Large in this pant, hoping for a fit! However, without any sort of fastener on the waist I found the Medium very difficult to get over my hips, even without hiking pants underneath. Returned the Medium and tried the Large - it was waaaaaaay too baggy, though it was easier to get on. All these pants needed was a button or zipper to make the on/off process less of a skinny-pants-dance!

There is a string on the inside of the waste band to tighten the pants.

Quality Pants

Great fitting. With a 34" inseam it is nearly impossible to find pants, let alone rain pants that fit correctly. these pants knock it out of the park. Durable construction, moisture wicking, and comfortable. If you've got long legs don't think twice about getting any other rain pants.

I bought these to wear while coaching at track meets. Their thickness is very similar to the Venture rain shell. They're not super thick at all and definitely not insulated. I also noticed that the waist on them is pretty small. I purchased skze small and while I'm regularly am a 27 waist/size 4 and these are small. They fit over leggings but not jeans at the waist. The legs are also bigger than I'd expect. They get the job done, but they're an interesting shape and aren't going to keep you warm, just dry.

These pants do run large. I wanted to make sure they were long enough in length because I am 5'6 in height so I ordered a large. The large were really big in length and waist. I returned them and ordered the pants in a medium and they are still a little big around the waist but fit great in length. Really love the pants and I can't wait to wear them on a rainy day!!!
