I got these pants in grey and loved the color. The material is soft but I wouldn't trust them to be super waterproof. They were warm and comfy, but what was a bummer is the fit. I am your standard medium fit for pants except my legs are a little longer than most.These pants fit crazy. Big in the waist band, low-rise waist, and tighter through the thighs. When I sat down, they rode low enough that the back of the waist popped out of my jacket and made my thighs feel like little sausages. I'll be sending these back for sure. These would fit someone with shorter legs and a slightly more "snuggly" body. I'd recommend them for a cold but dry climate, not wet.
