Rated 3 out of 5 by Rain Pants W/O a pocket Why would you design a pair of pants without a single pocket..DAH I give up October 13, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by not what I expected for the price I was looking for a lightweight solid packable rain pant. The product is lightweight but seems to be a sub-average rain pant that I could purchase at a box store for 1/4 of the price. This product does not have pockets, nor does it have access to pockets. Other competitors have the same product, with pockets, and side zippers for easy access to pull over boots. Although this product does have an expanded velcro on the bottom that allows you to slip these over shoes, they will not slide over boots. Competitors sale the same product with the above mentioned attributes for $35 when this product sales for $50. I am a Columbia fan but not happy with this product. October 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bring on the fishing I purchased these pants to wear while salmon and halibut fishing in Alaska, and to also wear while walking my dog during the Willamette Valley rains. As a size 16 woman, these men's large rain pants fit great over my jeans and are still roomy enough not to bind. I can't wait to try them out. Bring on the rain!! September 13, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too small and no pockets My old pair finally gave way so I got these... super let down, no pocket access and runs way to small, and I have chicken legs. Columbia stick with what works. June 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Was it even raining?? Worked 3 out of 5 days in the rain at the NY Botanical Garden. Torrential downpours while transplanting trees. I never got wet. You might feel it's a bit thin for the temp, just layer up underneath which might make it snug. But the layering was not totally necessary. A big difference. Amazing!! April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Very lightweight, fits over work clothes. Keeps my husband totally dry as he works outside. April 8, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Way too big Big enough for two of us with room to run around. Expected to be a little bigger to wear over pants but these were unusable. Had to return. March 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by roamer rain wear pants Great product excellent quality-true to size March 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by All I could wish for I have only had to use the rain pants once on my morning walk, but they performed perfectly, did not leak or sweat, and I am pleased with the fit and quality. February 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I walk everywhere, rain or shine, sometimes ten to twelve miles a day. I was looking for an affordable pair of rain pants that would keep me dry, and were also breathable. I searched for a long time. I went back and forth between more of a snow/ski pant, and these, but in the end, all I really needed was a pair of rain pants, and a pair that wouldn't leave my wallet empty. I wear a size Large in a 30 length, and the pants I ordered fit perfectly. I like watching the rain just bead right off these pants. They are very comfortable, and even have velcro to keep them snug around my boots. Without a pair of pants like these, I would be unable to walk as far as I do when it's pouring rain. I always wear a base layer under these pants when it's freezing cold, and I stay dry and they breathe well enough that I am not sweating. The pants have a draw-cord if you were to need to tighten the pants from the (front) inside, but with the Large and the size of my waist, I don't even need to use it. No pockets, but that doesn't bother me, as I usually keep items in my jacket or backpack. January 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great pants I bought these due to having to work out in the weather. Theses pants performed great. They were easy to put on over my regular uniform pants and I had no problem getting them on with my work boots on. They do not restrict my movement in any way and keep me from sweating like conventional rain suits. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly Suggest These are thin and rainproof. They kill the wind chill. I ride to/from work daily. Wet or cold, they rock. Super durable ride after ride. Rolls up nice n small, and fits in a sall pocket in my pack when not in use. A must have. December 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Basic Rain pant These rain pants work well. I have used them for a month while guiding in S.E. Alaska. They sweat a little bit on the inside, but I was also using them in some fairly wet conditions September 10, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable and Great wet weather pant. Just wish it had pockets. If it had pockets, I would rate it a 5 star product. Either way, gets the job done and has plenty of room to over over baggy or multi-layered pants. Completely happy with this! September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Summer Fishing I bought the Rebel Roamer pants for summer fishing here in Georgia because they're light weight. I find them to be perfect for a hot rainy tournament. Very comfortable and waterproof. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by hot weather pants Finest hot weather pants on the market, light weight, dry instantly and breath. When blood or anything spills on them, just wipe it off! I am a professional fishing guide and need pants that are light weight and durable. August 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain pant Excellent product, reliable and very long lasting. Therefore, I have not seen any other product competing with this one. Columbia makes great things. July 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bye bye water! Great pants to keep on the boat, back of the truck/car to throw on to keep you dry. I use these pants mostly while fishing and it light and dry. July 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Truly waterproof Wear these 4-wheeling in WV and they keep me dry from the rain, the mud puddles, and anything else that might get me wet. Highly recommend these pants. July 6, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by REBEL ROAMER RAIN PANTS great fit and comfortable to wear. It could use pockets and zipper in the front which would make it possibly the best rain pants I have owned. April 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Pant. After ordering the Watertight II Rain Jacket, I wanted rain pants as well, so I figured I would try these out. My hope is that it will live up to the qualities that it advertises during those rainy camping times. However, it would have been nicer if they would have came in a longer leg than the 36 inch inseam the XLT that I ordered has. But for the purposes which I bought them, being a couple of inches short should work out just fine. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPERIOR PRODUCT I was a little nervous & concerned about ordering online after reading the reviews but went with the waist sizing guide and my rain pants fit great. I walk for exercise here in the Pacific NW and rain is an issue during the winter months. I paired these pants with the Men's EvaPOURation jacket and it is an awesome combination. Lightweight, great look, versatile, and keeps me dry. Both the jacket and the pants break the wind are allow for layering. I am happy I stuck with a Columbia product. The zippered leg with Velcro really comes in handy. October 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple rain pants I'm 6'1 160 pounds with a 32 waist and a size small - 32 inseam fits me perfectly. Nothing highly sophisticating about these pants. Just made to keep the wet out and its does that. October 15, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pants The pants run very large . Took a little longer then usual to recieve them . March 8, 2014
