Got these last year to replace a real old pair of snowpants. I couldnt be happier!! I have never felt a drop of water make it through the pants, and they are pretty warm to boot. My one gripe is that they do run pretty baggy, but they allow for a lot of free movement. The pockets on the sides are very useful for tools and stuff, and it has a really well-placed pass holder that I use all the time. Highly recommended if you are into the whole loose pants thing.
