I do a lot of fishing in areas that are wet and heavily wooded. Nothing is worse than walking to your favorite fishing spot and spending the morning wet from the moisture or rain. These pants are very well made, excellent durability, and we'l insulated for those cold mornings out on the water. The pockets are well made and the zippers hold up well, keeping the items in my pocket dry. The size chart they offer is very important and works very well. I would definitely invest in a couple pair just to have around for when the weather changes. Also would make a great pair of golf pants for those cold/wet mornings out on the course.
