Rated 5 out of 5áby VirginiaHiker2 Highly Recommended
Light weight, water proof. Stuffs in it's own pocket. It's a great piece of insurance as I fly to clients most weeks for work. Never know what kind of weather I am going to get. Nice to slip on over dress pants in a storm. And backpacking, they easily slip over therms and shorts for good layering and temperature control when you have crisp mornings and then the temperature rises. For summer camping in Virginia, I will likely switch to my existing non-gore-tex uber thin shell pants. All in all, I'm glad I got them. Solid piece of kit. They are spendy, but worth it. I got them along with the Stowaway jacket (had a gift certificate) and in the 2014 snow/rain storms, I've been perfectly dry. And that's the real value proposition. I KNOW I will be dry. Nothing worse than hiking and being cold and wet.
As for sizing, I'm 6'1", 32" inseam, 36" waist, 185 lbs, and the L fits well on me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Hikewithdogs Keeps you dry in the woods or anywhere
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Men's Stowaway Pants with Gore-Tex. Gore-Tex is important to me because it keeps me dry during climate wet weather, which we are having a lot of these days. In addition, I also bought the jacket in blue and both keep me exceptionally dry. I like these garments because I can wear them to the store, at a rest stop on a long trip, exercising my dog or in the woods. I have another pair that is camouflaged and lite but I keep in my pack for hiking and backpacking. While they are Gore-Tex and excellent too, I find they are better suited in the wilderness than walking around town. But this is a matter of personal opinion. Finally, if you are looking for something of great utility and design for serious weather that fits with daily life, I would recommend that you take a look at them. I always look for Gore Tex products for protection rain, sleet or snow.

Rated 5 out of 5áby alangb Great rain gear
I just got these pants and they are great. I've only used them a couple of times once in light rain and once in heavy rain I stayed totally dry both times. Makes me wonder why I waited so long to get pair of Gor-Tex pants.
The fit was perfect. I ordered a medium and I'm 5'10" 155.
The only down side, if there is one, is they don't have front pockets or access to your pants pockets.
If you need a good pair or rain paints I would get these.

These were a Christmas present for my husband.
They fit per the size chart and he did seem to like them.
Only wish they came with a nylon bag to store them in.

Great pants. Dry every zodiac landing in Antarctica. The side zippers made them easy to get on/off over boots. Loved them!

Currently buying a pair of these for each member of this farming family. These pants keep you dry and also are good for keeping your clothes cleaner in the mud and muck of a winter farm scene. Just hose them off at the basement door before you take them off, hang them up to dry and you're ready to go the next morning.

Rated 4 out of 5áby OutdoorWorker57 Good product, but not what I needed.
I ordered these to replace a pair of rain pants I've had for at least 20 years (thanks LL Bean). The old pair had zippers at the legs and were fully gusseted so that any water that passed through the zipper was stopped. These don't have this feature and as I'm out in the rain often, I'll be returning them.

Replaced my old stowaway rain pant with Gore-Tex because of using a lot in long years. Great rairwear for raining weather during
watching football games on the stadium. Also backpacker on the trail walks thru raining day, too.

Rated 5 out of 5áby MDtoDCCommuter Review
These pants are worth it. I live in the DC area and when it rains it pours. They keep you 100% dry and they fit over my khaki work pants. The rain pants are extreamly light and versital as well.
I still can't figure out how to fold them so they fit in the pocket pouch, but that doesn't make them any less effective.
