Rated 4 out of 5 by Capecodcaper Stowaway rain pants with GorTex
This is my second pair of these pants and I love them! I recommend getting a size larger than you normally wear because they are snug when worn over another pair of slacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by suburb7 Terrific Foul Weather Pants
These pants are comfortable and effective. They fit over several layers or over a single layer. They shed snow and water very nicely, and seem very durable. I liked mine so much that I had my wife purchase a pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Duckwhisperer Rain Pants
These are perfect! I bought them for snow pants to wear to the barn, so obviously fashion is not an issue, but I wore them today in -10 temps with a windchill of -25 with only sweatpants under them and stayed warm and dry. I am 5ft. 5 in. and weigh 105 and a Med Reg fits perfectly with room for either jeans or heavy sweats under them. You couldn't sneak up on anything wearing these as they make a slight rustling noise when you walk but it didn't seem to bother my critters. Elastic in the pants leg hems would make them even better but the fabric is light enough I can tuck them into the tops of my muck boots. These will replace my heavy winter coveralls. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Capespinner Great but stowaway pocket should be in front
I'm 5'2" and 127 lb. and live in Massachusetts. I bought the petite medium and the length and fit are perfect. I can fit lightweight long underwear and sweat pants under these pants. However, I need to make sure to put my hiking boots on after I put these pants on. Also, the stowaway pocket should be in the front. It is a huge pocket but totally useless when in the back. I use these pants for walking in winter and kayaking in spring and fall. Move the pocket to the front and maybe add another one on the other side of the front and I would give them 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bucketlistbound Not on the trail
I hoped these pants had leg zippers for putting these on while on the trail (and in your boots). I ended up returning these. These are probably great if you start out with them on, but I don't see that you can put them on while on a hike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happyinjamul Comfortable, great fit
Fit perfectly over my jeans. Haven't completely tested how waterproof they are! Love the adjustable waist. Wish they had pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wiredachie Comes in short pants length
I tried on a lot of rain proof pants and LLBean won because of their sizing. No hemming as the pants came in reg or short lengths. These are comfortable and big enough to wear warm pants underneath. Pockets would be a plus. The fabric is not stiff or scratchy. I plan to wear these to football games in the Fall and on a Norway cruise in Aug. It rains a lot in Norway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Drummerlady Great except around the ankles
I am 5'1" and weigh 110 lbs, and I ordered the Sm-Petite. The hip fit is excellent, and I can wear them comfortably with or without jeans/long pants underneath. I liked the comfort of the mesh lining, even against bare skin. However, there is an annoying problem around the shin area. Inside the pant legs, where the mesh lining attaches to the smooth lining, my shoes caught in the material, even though I had the zipper and snap unfastened, as is intended. (Normally, I would remove shoes before putting these on, but I know the rain pants are designed with zippered/Velcro ankle openings for the purpose of pulling them on over long pants and shoes, if needed.) Also, the lower pant legs, especially in someone my height, blouse the material around the ankles. I solved this "flare" problem by removing each pant leg snap and replacing it with a sew-on large snap that allows me to fasten the overlapping tab to its matching snap bottom at a point 7" outward from the zipper. Yes, this causes some foldover of material, but it is far preferable to having so much extra fabric hanging down over my shoes. I'm fully aware that few customers would go to this extreme, so I am hoping that by mentioning it, LL Bean will consider an adjustment in the design so that we shorties can wear these otherwise wonderful rain pants without having them drag on the ground or "swish" noisily as we walk.

These were a great price for a Gortex pant. As usual, the cut is very generous through the seat, as with most LL Bean sizing. The waist fit well, but seat and thigh are extra generous. I also would have liked some ankle tabs for winter bike riding (as this is what they were purchased for) Will be a good all purpose winter sport pant for skiing and biking with a warm underlayer.
