These pants fit nicely and can accommodate layers with the stretch waste band. I have not used them yet, but did try them on. They will easily slide over tennis shoes, but not bulky hunting boots. I would hve liked to have had zippers in the legs to aid in the pulling over the boots. Other than that, this is a great product from a manufacturer you can trust. I would recommend this product.

This is the second pair of these waterproof pants I have purchased and they are well worth the money. Living on the Oregon coast it is not necessarily cold, but can be wet, so the shell style pants work perfect over a pair of shorts or long pants.
I would recommend this product.

I've been looking for a good inexpensive pair of rain pants for a long time. These work great. They don't create a lot of sound when moving about. These are meant to be worn over your clothing so they are loose.
I wish they had pockets or one in the back that secured your keys or wallet.
I would recommend this product.

We purchased these pants for a ski trip with our granddaughter. They were perfect for that purpose. They were just what we were looking for and for a price that was much less than other like products. We purchased two pairs in different sizes one for a man and one for a woman and they worked well for both.
I would recommend this product.

My husband is pretty rough on clothes so I was skeptical about them holding up. He's worn then at least a half dozen times or so and they're still like day one.
I'd have to credit the quality of the pants as opposed to him being extra careful. lol
It's been months since purchase and no rain until the past 6-8 weeks in order to review the product. I therefore don't recall what the other reviewers said about the sizing but it helped.
I believe I was going to order a size larger to fit over his jeans but they would have been way too large. There is plenty of room with his regular size with a little to spare.
He also likes that he can roll them up into a compact size to carry with him. They kept him totally dry.
Good product.
I would recommend this product.

Theas paints were so oversize in the leg area that it is like they have never tried them on, will return them and never waste my money on postage and order anything online from Columbia,
I do not recommend this product.

Out on the water fishing, whether I am pre fishing for a tournament or tournament day I want to make sure I stay warm and dry. These pants keep me dry from the damp boat seat from a foggy morning to the fish the splashes water on the boat. These pants are also just really good to wear on the outside of any pants to stay a little warmer. They have so far increased my comfort on the water and put more fish in the boat.
I would recommend this product.

My use of a product tends to be on more the extreme size. In my profession I could be out for days at a time, and in extremely rough terrain. I ordered these pants because of my confidence in the Columbia brand. When they arrived, they were well constructed, and I could tell they would be a good rain pant for the average user. I decided on another on of Columbia's rain pants because of the thin construction these pants. I felt they would work for any on-trail function, but they might become an issue for any off-trail work that I might have to do. Overall, I think these would be a great pair of rain pants for the average user, but maybe not the best for someone who tends to go off trail and into the thick stuff quite a bit.
I would recommend this product.

These pants left me high and WET on two recent trips. Once, while hiking in Acadia National Park in a heavy rain storm, and again this week in the Adirondacks. Both times I was soaked to the skin through these pants with from the rain. Yes, it was torrential, but my old Gor Tex pants NEVER let the water in.
I cannot recommend these to anyone but the casual hiker, kayaker
I do not recommend this product.

These pants are great. I like that the newer style doesn't have the slits on the side seams to get into your own pockets. Water poured into those openings on the older style.
The leg cuff is large enough to go over non-bulky shoes and can then be tightened.
Even when wet, they feel good on the skin.
The thing I love the most about the pants is that inside and out dry when I hang them on a line. If the weather's no good for line drying, I can throw them in the dryer on delicate, and they're done.
I use them in my rafting business, so that saves me a ton of time between trips.
I would recommend this product.

I bought these to use with a top of the line rain jacket I purchased earlier from them, although not top of the line they are well made but look to be a little long for me (5'8" tall) thank goodness for the Velcro on the cuffs that will remedy the problem. All of the products I buy from Columbia wear well and have never blown out a seam like some other manufacturers. These will be a great addition to my foul weather gear for sure.
I would recommend this product.

The pants are nice material and are comfortable, but they don't have pockets or holes for pockets, so the wearer has to reach over his/her waistband to access wallet and cell phone. I've had some of the old rubber rain pants from Columbia that served me well. I wish I could still buy a pair of those old pants.
I would recommend this product.

Just put these pants to the test for three wet days on the golf course. Performed better than anyone else's gear. Shook to dry. Leaving pants open at bottom kept my shoes drier I think. Really perfect.

Bought them about 3 weeks ago, worn them twice in heavy rain, once sledding and once skiing in 30-40 degree temps.
Like everybody else says, this runs large, so I ordered the smaller size and still plenty of room over jeans, but doesn't look stupid.
For jeans, I am a 31 waist by 32 length, so went with the small. Still a little long with regular shoes, so roll them at the waist. No problem with ski boots.
Provides an excellent waterproof and warm layer over jeans, so would highly recommend.
I would recommend this product.

Great quality pant that folds up small to be placed in a pack. I've only used them once but they do exactly what they are supposed to do...Keep you Dry.
Sizing - I am 5-10 165 with a 32inch waist and a Medium fits perfectly. The Large would have been to baggy.
I would recommend this product.

Worked as advertised -- completely waterproof after a day on the water in cold weather. Helpful velcro adjustments at the bottom of the legs.
My only wish is that they included pockets of some kind.

I GOT THESE PANTS TO REPLACE A PAIR THAT I'VE HAD FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF NO REAR POCKET, I AM THRILLED WITH THIS PRODUCT. I ESPECIALLY LOVE THAT THEY ARE "JUST PLAIN BLACK" WITH NO CRAZY TRIM COLORS. VERY COMFORTABLE AND ALLOW FLUID MOVEMENT... HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE PANTS!
