Rated 2 out of 5 by NEKVT best suited as backup raingear
Pants will certainly keep you dry and pack down to a tiny package. Product description is right on the mark.
Note that there are no front pockets, no zipper and no belt loops. The pants have and elastic waistband and a shockcord drawstring. I found these to be inadequate during higher levels of activity.
Pants could be vastly improved by simply adding belt loops, replacing the shockcord waist band with a nonstretch cord and adding cargo pockets. I little trimmer fit would go a long way to making the pants quieter in the field.
