Rated 2 out of 5áby Mouse1999 No side pockets
I don't recall ever having a pair of pants from LL Bean that does not have side pockets. So I was surprised that these do not have side pockets. There is just one pocket in the back, which is easier for a thief to get at than you. I also read a review that these pants are easy to tear. I rarely return anything to LLBean, but these are going back.

If you're like me, raincoats alone just don't do it. They may protect the upper parts of your body, but the rain then pours down on your legs. These pants are the solution. You can now be covered! The zipper feature on the bottom of the legs is great to easily pull pants over shoes or boots. I just bought them and hope they are durable. Given L.L. Bean's track record, I assume they will be.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Zorra Comfortable, waterproof and great fit!
I wanted a pair of rain pants that I could put on over regular clothing. These pants were a great choice! I am a 35" waist and was not sure if I should get the 32-24" or 36-38" waist. I ordered both to try. The 32-34" waist fitted well and gave some comfort room too and was what I kept. The material is thin but effective for its purpose; other brands had more thickness and weight, which I did not like. I like LL Bean's Velcro bottoms and ankle openings to allow for easy put-on.

I have had a Trail Model Raincoat for many years. It has kept me dry in a lot of rain. But my pants will still get soaked in really heavy rain. For those occasions, we have these Trail Model Rain Pants.

Rated 3 out of 5áby MarylandMan What no pockets?
I like the pants (got the jacket also) but was surprised and dismayed that there were no front pockets! Only one pocket in the back. I am so use to pockets in my pants that I find this unacceptable. Pockets with zippers would have been great. Seems like a fine product but REALLY don't like it that there are no front pockets.

I've hiked a number of mountains with these pants.
They work well for the weather. I wouldn't mind pockets, but I don't care about the pockets since I'll have a jacket in the rain.
The real issue is simple: You can't sit down on a rock or tree without the pants ripping. I hiked about 30 miles, sat on a rock and little dots immediately tore into the pants. They are fine with rain, but aren't durable. I continued to use them for another 30 mile hike and sat again at some point--new tear. The size is fine, but the lightweight fabric isn't durable. Sadly none of the pathfinder pants fit me. These would be perfect with a better backside durability.

Bought these pants to wear at last night's Penn State-Rutgers game in the rain. These were perfect!! Wore them over jeans. Kept me perfectly dry and warm. The rain seemed to run right off them and they had a nice feel. Would be perfect if they had regular side pockets.

Since I work on the water in a very warm climate I am very pleased by the protection these pants offer against heavy rain while being very light cool.

I have not had the chance to have to wear these pants yet in a rain storm. I am 6'4 and got the large tall and was expecting them to be a little short as it said the inseam was only 33 inches and I wear a 36. I got them and they actually fit me perfectly in the length. I am going on a trip to Yellowstone at the end of this week and bought these so if we had bad weather I could still be out in the weather and see the sites. The zipper that goes all the way up to the knee on the outside of each pant leg also makes it easy to get the pants on while still wearing shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5áby wiffen Waterproof, but pants end to fall down!
The elastic drawstring at the waistband is cinched to size by a cheap foam device, which does not hold its position adequately. I am constantly needing to adjust this in an attempt to keep the pants from falling down. Other than this annoyance, they kept me dry and comfortable during a recent trip to Alaska.
