I purchased these pants in early November and have been using them since. The waterproofing on these pants is awsome and will keep you dry in most weather conditions. One really cool thing not mentioned about these pants is that the bottom of the pants can be rolled up and secured with a button so they don't get scuffed up in the parking lot. These pants have fairly large pockets(two of them being lined with fleece.) Adjustable waist band really comes in handy when you don't have the luxury of a belt. Even thought these pants aren't insulated they're still pretty warm, most likely due to the mess lining. These pants are a little baggy but I guess that just adds to the style and in that case, these pants have a lot of it.
