Tired of having a soggy bum or having to waterproof every couple weeks, I went on a mad hunt for super technical gear for women, I'm talking Gore-Tex or Gore-Tex level protection. I found only a few options, and even fewer that looked good. The Moroccan tile print was pretty cool, especially when decked out in it from head to toe. Unfortunately the size small in the pants fit funny and the mediums were way too big! The smalls came up uncomfortably high on my waist and the stiffness of the waterproof zippers at the hip made them poke out and pull in a funny way when I sat down. I think a woman with a more womanly shape (smaller waist, bigger hips) would fit these pants better than I do.
The venting and pockets of the pants are outstanding but I ended up with size small Burton Henna pants. They have flow through venting (openings on both sides of the thighs) and the rise wasn't as high.
