Men's EvaPOURation™ Rain Pant is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I took these pants on a 4 hour hiking trip and it was raining the entire time. They performed much better than I expected. The OmniWick fabric is extremely effective. My legs stayed cool and dry throughout. It didn't feel like I was wearing rain pants at all. I have a 36" waist, which is the minimum recommended for a large, and the waist elastic is stretchy enough that it fits snugly without being too tight. I think the people who complained about them being too loose just got the wrong size to be honest. They're very light weight, the large size weighs 13 oz. The mobility in the pants exceeded my expectations. I can easily bend or squat down. Taking a knee is no problem. Yeah, there's a little restriction, but it's a rain pant, not a leotard. One thing I was worried about was the sound of fabric rubbing against itself as I walked. My sister had some kind of nylon pants when we were little and the swish-swish sound when we hiked drove me nuts. These are fine though. In short, they were everything I hoped they would be, and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Britches Wore the pants with the jacket over my clothes. Stayed completely dry and chill-free from the wind. Wondered about full-length zippers down the sides. Don't anymore! You can pull pants on over boots, or zip down from the top to get into under-garments pockets. Every pocket has a zipper, so your items will stay safe and dry. Only complaint: i have a very narrow waist and short legs. The length is no problem-the pants fit snug around legs or boots; but the waist rides down. The velcro tabs at the waist don't hold if you move around at all. I wish it had belt loops!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper broke first time out I purchased these for a recent backpacking trip in Great Smoky Mountains NP. The second night in the backcountry, I zipped them all the way down and tried to slip my foot through the left leg. I found my boot wouldn't fit through and pulled my foot back out. Keep in mind that I did not push or pull particularly hard. My boot did not get stuck, it just wouldn't fit through. I took my foot out, then tried to zip them up since I was going to take my boots off to slide my feet in. I then discovered that a bunch of the teeth had just shredded and the zipper would no longer work. See attached picture. Since both zippers were at the bottom, I couldn't get them to work. At the time, I was just trying to use them for windbreak - it was in the low 20's with a 20 mph wind. I suffered through it, but if I had really needed to stay warm and dry I would have been stuck duct taping them closed. Most of my and my daughter's Columbia gear has been without issue, but I just can't recommend a product that falls apart the first time it gets used.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waist problems This product does keep the rain off of you, but it doesn't have anything to cinch up the waist and the pants have a tendency to slip down. This is a problem unless you can manage to tuck it in or tie something around you, not what I would expect from Columbia!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Florida Dreams As a Charter Captain in South Florida we routinely require light weight rain gear for showers. These pants were light enough to stay comfortable in our south Florida Heat but strong enough to keep out the frequent thunderstorms. Great Product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some Good Some Bad Well I knew these pants would be a compromise when I bought them. There are very few rain pants with full length side zipper. These had them and I really want that feature. On the downside, they are heavier than other rain pants I have had and they don't bend as well in the knee as I would like. I also like something which last longer and hold better than velco for waist adjustments.
