GREAT DRY PANTS!
December 31, 2008
It's a comfortable pants to wear all day in if you are doing any kind of water activity. What's great is that it has a pocket. Most good dry pants don't offer any pockets because it compromises the dryness of the pants. You will have a hard time taking off your pants because the ankle gasket that keeps water out is very tight. But then again, all dry pants is like that. Other than that, I definitely recommend this pants to anyone that does water-related activities.

Comfortable for All Day Use
July 09, 2010
I used them for 6 days of whitewater on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. I was concerned about the comfort of the latex ankle seals but other than the difficulty of putting them on / taking them off, the seals never caused any discomfort. I stayed warm with thin polartec pants underneath, in the 45 degree water. For dryness, they are only as good as the top you wear. In my case, I was only wearing a splash jacket, so I didn't stay dry at all, and the ankle seals actually held the water in. I think I would prefer a neoprene / velcro seal instead for my purpose. I did some short hikes with some rock scrambling and the pants were not restrictive at all.
GREAT FIT FOR A WOMAN - Maureen - 2010, July

Even though it doesn't say specifically that these pants are for men except in the sizing chart, I assumed they were and was sure that I would be sending them back for being baggy and too large even though I was ordering a size small. How wrong I was! They fit me like they were a women's size. I'm 5'6" 124lbs and a size small fit me just great. I even was able to get a pair of Nike fleece pants under the Swift Dry Pant. Can't wait to try them out when the weather cools in the fall.

Great for fishing!
February 16, 2006
I use my Swift Dry Pant for surf fishing in Southern California. The other options were sticking to my surf shorts (brrrr on those cold mornings) or breathable waders. The Dry Pant was a perfect compromise. They keep me warm and dry but a lot less hassle than waders. The rubber ankle gaskets are VERY tight but can be loosened by heat stretching. I wish there were more pockets but that would probably compromise the waterproof-ness.
Excellent Long Term Dryness

Used this item through the Narrows in Zion Canyon and never got wet once. Ankles were tight but I stretched them out and they work perfectly. Superb driness.
