I have these in my pack spring summer and fall and at work in SE Alaska every day to/from the office. They are light and convenient. Full side zip is an excellent feature that is hard to find on cheap light rain gear. They are fully waterproof and durable enough for serious hiking and some bushwhacking. I wouldn't trust them for much glissading or rock work, but that is not their purpose. These are awesome for the price. On the negative, the button at the top of the side zip has the tendency to pop open if you zip down some for venting. The 2-sided Velcro wing design OR uses on the Furio pant stays much better. The draw string at the ankle hangs out of the pant if you pull it tight and can get caught or worn. I am 5'7" and 200 lb. I wear size L in these. They are a little long, but I am used to blousing legs on pants given my build. They are just right at the waist and just a hair snug in the upper thigh, but not enough to restrict movement.
