I bought it to use in high intensity activity for its qualities of being waterproof and breathable. Well, it was water proof maybe, but I could not tell because I was soaking wet by presperation, when I used it in one occasion snow shoeing and, on another, skinning. Maybe it is good for walking in the rain !
I do not recommend this product.

I love these pants for their intended purpose. I keep them in my pack or bicycle rack for rainy commutes. The Dry Q Evap technology doesn't let water through, which is what I consider the intended purpose. I'm 6' 175 lbs and the medium fits well. In jeans, wear a 32W x 32L. The pants can fit over boots at the bottom, but also aren't so baggy as to get caught on my bicycle. I can also unzip the lower leg to get the pants on over shoes if needed. The fit and waterproofing on these pants makes them far superior to the ones my employer provides, but I'm not allowed to wear black at work.
I would prefer a fully elastic waistband, but the non-elastic front does keep the pants from cutting in at the front and makes the fit more like normal pants. Just don't buy the pants too big, as there's no way to tighten them down. The pants have no pockets or belt loops, which doesn't bother me because I only wear them for short periods when needed, often over other pants. Pockets might be a curse, as well, because it's just another area that might leak. The current design has no leaks.
The Dry Q Evap gets a little muggy when sitting around the house or in sunny temperate weather. I think that's a tradeoff with any waterproof garment. I only break these out when I expect rain, and they're great for that purpose.
I would recommend this product.
