Rated 5 out of 5 by asap Should have bought these a long time ago
I walk my dog in all kinds of bad weather, and always came back with wet pants...until I got these. I have worn them in pouring rain, a blizzard, etc and my pants and socks have come back completely dry (hooray!). I am 5'6" and bought a large to go over my jeans. Might have been able to wear a medium, but they are not a fashion statement. They are a necessity. Several other dog owners have now ordered them. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pugetsounder Okay
This rain pant fits well over jeans. The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is because I am a petite size - just under 5' 2" - and it would be nice if it came in petite sizes for the length. It fits over the shoe or boot without dragging if the Velcro closure is all the way over. I wear a 14 P. jean, and the size large is a comfortable fit without being 'huge' on me - as some large sizes can be. I don't mind the above the waist fit, as I wear the 'original fit' pants and jeans.

This is a great pair of pants not only for rain, but also for snow and wind. Last winter we had a lot of snow and wind and I put these over my jeans when I needed to be out shoveling or playing with our dog. These kept me dry and worked as a good wind block.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CycleSki perfect for rainy bike commuting
These rain pants arrived just in time for me to try them out on my rainy bike commute today. They were perfect. Fit right over my jeans, legs have a velcro strap so they didn't get in the way of the chain, and the ankle zips let me put them on and take them off right over my shoes. I am 5'3" and the length is just fine. They are a bit baggy in the legs but they are rain pants, so that was expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by izzidorable Waterproof, Sturdy, and Plus Size Friendly!
First off, thank you LLBean for not assuming that plus size means that you don't like to be active. Kudos.
I live in the Pacific NW and commute on my bike to work. That means that late autumn, winter, and early spring are wet. REALLY wet. These pants do a terrific job of keeping my clothes dry. They breathe relatively well (about as well as you can expect from rain gear) and fit comfortably over my clothes.
The only real complaint I have about these pants relates to the velcro on the ankles and the length of the pants. If they were about 2" longer, they would be great, the length would fit over all of my pants and I could velcro them closed with my pants safely tucked inside. Unfortunately, even at its tightest, the velcro doesn't give nearly a tight enough closure, leaving my ends of my pants flopping out and getting wet. I've taken to using a safety pin to keep them tight enough. It works, but it's not an ideal solution, and I can't just pull my pants off quickly once I get to the office or home.
Either way, I'll be purchasing a new pair next year.
Thanks LL Bean for respecting plus sized ladies!

I wanted these pants for bike riding incase it rains. The fit was awful the legs were so long I really needed a petite I did not want to spend to much being I would use them infrequently. The material was good for the price just wished they came in petites, had to return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LikeItGetIt too small
they are very nice but tight over summer pants, so I returned for the larger size since I will wear them winter and summer sometimes over thicker pants. I will let you know more when the larger pants arrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pepperoni waterproof and long enough
Finally pants that are long enough for me. I am 5.7 feet tall and rarely can find active pants long enough. Used them in Ireland where it's raining almost everyday. They will come in handy for golfing also. There's enough room to put over pants. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gracejem Waterproof, easy on and off
When rain gear is needed, these pants are great. They are much easier on and off due to the Velcro cuff openings and the zippered sides. At one point while sitting the sun was very hot on the black fabric but I found turning the cuffs up inside out over my legs eliminated that problem. They fit the sizes suggested while still offering room enough to layer underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by osofisher Great for a rainy fishing day
I bought these to replace my old rain pants. the fit was perfect . I stayed dry after sitting in a boat for hours on a rainy day. Fish love rain, but I don't like to get wet. These also breathed. I am short, and the length was fine, as the top of my boots were covered. a good purchase price also.
