Rated 5 out of 5 by ErinRose BEST EVER!!!
These were the best rain pants I have ever owned. 36 hours of rain in about 40 degree weather on a raft trip and I was bone dry. I am 5'6" 180lbs, the large was perfect. I was even able to fit a pair of fleece pants under them. Unfortunately, I lost them on another raft trip this past summer when we were hit with a flash flood in the middle of the night. My boat was recovered but the dry bag these were in was not. :(
Because of $$ flow currently I am replacing them with the Trail Model Rain Pants, made from the same waterproof material. I hope they can hold up to the same elements.

These pants were sized perfectly,p/s. I am 5'2" and weigh105lbs.
The waterproofing is great and without my sweating. It is highly recommended by me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by reviewer10101 Somewhat too stiff for my purpose
I ordered these plants because of the full-length side zippers. The fit seemed okay, and the construction seemed substantial, but I am returning them because, between the rugged fabric and the heavy zippers, the pants felt stiff and uncomfortable over my other layers. I wanted to use them for zodiac cruising in Antarctica, so they need to be flexible, especially in the knee area (which I would not call articulated). I will stick with my old L.L.Bean rain pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foreverdancing Waterproof and Windproof!
The pants are perfect: Waterproof. Windproof. Easy on. Easy off. Full side zips. Zipper closed front pockets.Drawstring ankles.Stow easily and compactly. When I wear them on rainy blowy days, I arrive at work after a one-mile soaking wet walk completely dry. Fantastic.!

Rated 3 out of 5 by FancyNance Way too long
I was so disappointed when I tried these on, only to find out that they were far too long for me. Because of how they are designed (lower leg zipper and Velcro tab at the ankle), there is no way to either roll them up or cut them off. I am 5' 2" and ordered a petite length, which typically fits great (I have an number of LL Bean pants in my closet). The inseam of these pants measures 30" rather than the usual inseam of 28" for petite length. I would recommend them to a taller person, though someone who is 5' 4 or 5' 5" may do better with the petite length.The pants are otherwise well constructed.
I was replacing a pair of LLBean waterproof pants I had for 12+ years that had lost their waterproof properties, and the length of those pants was great.
I will return them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pennypear Totally unfashionable
Returned these because the full length zipper on the sides made it look bulky and wavy. I don't know if they were rain proof, but I just could not wear them the way they looked. I liked the zipper at the bottom where it is easy to put your boots on. Definitely not necessary to have a full length zipper. I was going to use these on a motorcycle trip. I'm 4'11" weigh 138lbs, bought Petite large. The fit at waist was good liked the fact that waist is adjustable. A little long on me, but would have been OK with boots.
Suggestion: place the zipper only up the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LikesOldStyleQualityBest Terrific!
Great quality, nice looking. The smallest size available is a bit big for my 5'2" 100 lb stature but am keeping them anyway because I like them that much. Generally I don't like rip stop nylon but these pants seem to be sturdy and look nice on. I do recommend, just wish I could have gotten a smaller size. I hope they will wash and wear well because they will get a lot of use outside in the mucky weather with my large and messy dog-

Rated 4 out of 5 by JB68 Great pants, great service from L L Bean
I am 5ft 2" and I found the medium size perfect. I also live in Australia and nervously relied on the measurements published on the web site. These were a perfect guide. I received my pants in less than three weeks, this is fantastic service. Thanks you for a wonderful experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LesIsmoor Excellent wind/rain pants
Very comfortable. Not too baggy. Easily fit over my high Boggs. Warm over leggings and light pants down to zero F. With wind and lower temps, needed another layer. Nice adjustable waistband. Good side pockets. I will get a ton of use out of these.
I'm 5'6" or so, and weigh about 135. The length and fit of the small regular worked perfectly for me.
