I returned these pants due to the fit. Female, 5'5", 140lbs. I bought these for playing Ultimate Frisbee and biking in the rain.
HIPS: They fit too snug in the hips for effective running, lunging, or bike riding. They could work if I hiked up some of the fabric from the thighs, but then it was rather uncomfortable in the crotch and still a little restrictive. For a technical pant geared at active people they should be able to function comfortably in a wide range of movement without me moving around the fabric every time I want to lift my leg.
ANKLE: They have a long side zipper that secures with a snap so you can put the pants on over your shoes. That is awesome. However, even when the zipper is closed and the snap secure, the leg opening is too big to effectively keep my ankles and lower legs dry. The elastic is not even stretched, because the leg opening is so big it doesn't even touch my legs. It does not shut out the water splashing up while I run.
I do not recommend this product.
