Columbia Storm Surge Rain Pants for Ladies
nice and dry
I have worn many rain pants over the years and these perform perfectly. The fit is perfect for the more athletic build an XS actually fits (yahoo). no frills, nothing to go wrong, perfect simple design.

Bought these rain pants last year for a 2 week trek through Patagonia. In that region, one can see all 4 seasons (in an extreme way) in one afternoon. They kept me dry when I needed to be. I am normally a size 4 and the the Small size was perfect to wear other pants. I still had room to move.

Great for commuter cycling in rain
Great for cycling in the rain in Seattle!
Fit: If you are planning to wear them 'over' other pants, get a size up for sure. I am on average a size 6 (depending on the cut of the pant in question) and I ordered a size medium in these pants. Had plenty of room to pull on over my clothing-even my bulkier pants. They have a draw string waist to make up any difference so are very forgiving if you happen to find you have more room than you need in them on any certain day i.e. wearing them over thin pants vs. thicker pants underneath.
NOTE: They would not be considered 'relaxed through hip and thigh' so if you are lucky enough to have great curves, take this into consideration and get a size up x2 for the scenario of wearing over your other clothing. These pants are cut fairly straight down from the waist.
Waterproof - YES - Rain has just run off every time.
Would recommend to a friend, enemy, frienemy(?) Happy rainy trails to all!
