"Good hardshell outer layer but the suspender attachments are trouble"
Bought these for the Mrs. who is 5'6". These pant legs go down to the ground, but we found that true with several name brand women's hardshell pants. The frustration with these pants was trying to disconnect and reconnect the suspenders for a pee-break. The plastic catch on the suspenders is not easy to manipulate in sub-freezing temps, and when opened, it's like a carabiner with a hook nose gate that catches on everything when you're trying to take it off. Would be better if they used a simpler system like clip-ons or Velcro with a horizontal loop instead of the vertical belt-loop style on the inside of these pants. We'll be using these for back-up since we found an EMS women's hardshell pants with better length (shorter) pant legs. Didn't come with suspenders so we'll use clip-ons or sew loops and use Velcro attaching suspenders.
