Awesome rain pants!
I love these rain pants so much! I can't believe how dry I stayed during a horried rain and wind storm. Plenty of room to pull over jeans. The only thing that is kinda troublesome, is the webbing inside, my shoe/boot gets caught up while putting them on and off. Other than that I love them. I will be able to use them in the spring for cross country skiing, and out on the boat.
Exactly what I was looking for!
I was looking for waterproof pants that were warm enough so that I did not have to wear jeans underneath on a cool rainy summer day. North Face's Resolve Pants was the perfect choice. It's waterproof, windproof, and the mesh lining kept me warm. However, it may be too warm on a humid rainy day but I don't mind because the pants are really comfortable. I purchased an XS (I'm 5'4, 100 lbs). The length was a bit long but otherwise the fit was perfect. I wish it came in more colors. I recommend highly!
These pants kept me dry
It's always a hassle to find truly waterproof outerwear. I needed something that was both waterproof and windproof. I bought both the Resolve jacket and pants. Both worked great. The pants fit well. I am 5' 6" and weight around 125lbs, wearing a size 2 jeans. I bought a size Medium so that I had enough room to easily pull them over jeans, which I can. I have been caught in the rain both on the boat and while hiking, and these pants have kept me dry. They are also nice over shorts if you just need wind protection - or protection from mosquitoes in the woods, which I used them for on a recent hike. They are lined with mesh, but it is not an annoying mesh - it's pretty soft and comfortable againt bare skin. They have adjustable ankles which is a nice feature. If you are looking for a jacket to go with it, I recommend the Resolve jacket. It was also perfectly windproof and rainproof when I needed it. The hood is adjustable, but it takes a few tries to get used to it. It comes a bit low on my forehead, but I can easily put it back some when needed, and I do like it lower when it's pouring. The mesh lining is light but would still make them a bit warm to wear in the rain on a very hot day.
