Whether the Weather
March 31, 2011

I ordered these pants looking for rain pants I could use easily and frequently for many different uses. I work outdoors with children and these pants are easy to pack, have great flexibility and most importantly keep whatever is under them dry. I keep these pants in my backpack that I take to work every day. I never know when I will need them but when I do they are simple pull over my daily wear and it doesnt feel bunchy or bulky around the waistline. I also use them for cross country skiing and dog walking in the winter and spring. The elastic around the ankles makes for a tight fit under or over boots. Also the elastic waitline and ankles are easy to roll and still comfortable. Because they are so water proof, if you are sweating under them there are not alot of vents so a little moisture does tend to build up on the inside. Overall, these pants have fullfilled my expectations when I ordered them, and I am able to use them for all the purposes I wanted and more.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value

Great Buy!
July 19, 2011

I work as a canoe guide at a wilderness camp. Have had these on several trips, and many rainy days. They are comfortable, light weight, and very water proof. They fit well, with a little extra room for shorts/pants underneath. I bought a medium (which I usually wear), so fit is true to size. I loved the drawcord and being able to snug them up on cold, rainy and windy days. A great buy, at a good price, I would get them again!

Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Good rain pants
August 12, 2009

These pants are good looking and fit well. Ordered the xs, and they fit me perfectly. The only problem is, the waist is exactly my size, which means they are difficult to pull on over other pants or shorts. If I bought a size bigger to get a bigger waist, then the legs would be too long. If the waist thing doesn't affect you, these are absolutely great pants would recommend.

Good price, good company, petites still too long!
March 20, 2013

These are durable pants, my only complaint is that I ordered a medium which was too small, but the petite length was perfect, but when I ordered and got the size large, the petite length was too long! Overall great customer service. Will buy from Altrec again. Buying clothes online is hard.

Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design

Great Rain Gear
March 17, 2011

These pants kept me dry while working outside in the rain. Love the elastic waistband. Easy to slide on when it starts raining and easy to slide off when it stops. The pants fit true to size with room to fit over pants or shorts you're already wearing. They look great too!

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
