Rated 4 out of 5 by ChristineTK Great pants, strange fit.
These rain pants are just perfect and function as they should, but the sizing was unexpected. I usually don't like the pull up style, as the elastic waist doesn't offer adjustment and the seat gets all lumpy and baggy. Not the case with these, at least for me. I have a bigger waist and am straight through the hips. However I bought a size small in petite, and I am neither one! (5'6' and 135 lbs) The regular length would have dragged in the mud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by franfair LOVE these pants
I walk for transportation, commuting on foot through suburbia and along some hiking trails. These pants are great for fending off wind and wet. They're comfortable, have pockets, and even look reasonably good on me, passing for normal pants at a casual viewing distance. I have trouble buying pants because my hips are a size 2 and my waist is a size 12. I bought the XS regular and they fit fine over my jeans or long underwear plus jeans because of the adjustable waist. I'm 5'4" tall with short legs and they are almost, but not quite, too long for me, so, if you are very tall, they might not be long enough. I really appreciate the full-length side zippers because I can put these on in a sudden downpour without having to sit on a wet bench to get them on, and because I can unzip them from the bottom if I get stuck on an overheated bus (when I've got too much shopping to carry home). What else can I say? These are great rain pants that keep me comfortable on miserable days.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Madge Nice quality But Not Stylish
I'm 5'3", weigh 118 lbs.--The small petite fit very well--The reason I returned the pants --they have a zipper on the outside of each leg that runs all the way up to the waist---while convenient,the zipper is rather pronounced and made the pants look bulky or wrinkled on the outside leg. I've tried other pants with full length zippers that are much less noticeable. Pants were of good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tinkerfarmgirl Best snow pants ever
I bought these pants to wear over my warm leggings for when I tredge through deep snow on my farm while feeding horses and doing various other outdoor work. These pants have kept me completely dry and allow plenty of room for me to move around, kneel, jump fences, etc. A+ pants.

Went to a Patriots game Dec.29 in the pouring rain wearing these pants. I was completely dry and warm in them. I would recommend these to every one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boonie Great Rain Protection
These pants offer great protection from the rain. I really like the zippers on the side that pull from either direction and make it easy to get over boots. They fit nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IamsoBean Extremely well-made pants
Very comfortable pants and very durable. I usually wear a 6P in pants and these pants work just fine in Small Petite for me. They fit over my jeans very easily and are not too tight; there is plenty of room and also plenty of ways to adjust the pants so that they fit snugly. I plan to use these while studying abroad with college students in Europe during a typical rainy winter. Thanks, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lmanke Thank you for petite!
Nice pants, they run a little big. Made to wear over pants but actually have shape, not as big and baggy as other rain pants I have tried. Material is thicker than others which is what I was looking for. Thank you L L Bean for making a variety of active outerwear in petite!!
