Great waterproof rain pants! Lightweight and durable. Zippers and snaps on legs and an elastic drawstring at the ankles make this the best rain pant out there!

I bought these last year to actually wear with a base layer and hiking pant to make a good snow pant and it worked great! The weather and activity on the mountain can change quickly so instead of snow pants I thought layering was the key, and I was right!

I never even wore my Mammut snow pants that cost me a fortune this year. I just wore layers with the rain pants on top. When I got off the snow I took the Precip Pants off with no need to use a dressing room because my hiking pants were underneath.

These pants are lightweight and do the job. No need for anything else. I have heard that the rainstorms come on pretty quickly in the High Sierras, so I will be including these pants with my gear for the JMT. I'm sure they will come in handy out there.Ā

Noisy... nothing like a too stiff pant that makes voice no matter what you do or your size. Can not stand on the trail, no way could you use for hunting. I only keep mine because I like to get out of the vehicle and sit even in the rain or snow... would NEVER BUY AGAIN
