Just completed a 113 mile trip on the Continental Divide Trail in Colorado in 4 1/2 days. Only time I had to use the pants was on day 4 when I got caught on an exposed pass by a driving rain storm. The pants worked wonderfully well. Very light weight, very breathable. I was surprised at how tough the pants were for being so light.
Only issue I had is that I couldn't get the pants on/off over my boots. Other than that, these pants kept the rain out and let all my "sweat moisture" escape. After the storm, I hiked lots of miles in the pants even after the sun came out and there was no moisture build up. I was impressed.
