I work outdoors and bought these pants for the inclement weather days. So far I'm impressed. They are incredibly waterproof and just bead up the water immediately without the wet look. They are very durably built as well which goes great for working construction outside. Maybe not the intended purpose but they have served me well. 10-30 degree days I wear a base layer underneath and they are perfect temp without getting sweaty from work and not cold while idyll passing time. The fit runs a little big, I sport a large with tons of room for layers underneath, and I am 185# 6'
