Columbia Storm Surge Rain Pants for Ladies
totally preforms as described
Purchased three months ago and have worn a dozen times in rain, 20mph wind, and snow. They have gotten me outside when I would not have gone before and I was totally comfortable.

A little short
Had to replace my other waterproof pants because they had sprung a leak and was very happy with how these pants keep the water out! I use them for biking to work in Portland and they've been great in pouring rain. I'm 5' 5" and I ordered an XS-- they fit well but are a little short, didn't exchange them for a S because I liked the fit around the waist and despite being short they still don't leak. Highly recommend them!

A Rainy Spring
Through several downpours and non-stop drizzling I stayed high and dry. It was nice to get to enjoy some of the benefits of fishing in the rain without feeling like a drowned muskrat. I found my body temperature stayed at a comfortable range too with one exception. When the sun broke through on a few occasions (though never for very long) I found the black pants to attract the heat of the sun. I'm hoping Columbia comes out with these pants in some lighter colors. Maybe some that pair up nicely with their jackets for a polished, pro-uniform look on the water.
I'll give these pants an 8 out of 10. I'm deducting a point because there are no pockets and because of black being the only available color. Other than that, this is a great product that I would recommend to anyone who wants to be able to fish rain or shine.

Women's Storm Surge Pants
The first time I bought a Colombia product was a few hears ago when I bought a vest for my husband. He loved it. So I decided to buy the pants and a rain jacket for my self because I am always outdoors-rain or shine. I was not disappointed. I received the pants on time. They fit perfectly and I know that I would use them often when I travel to Alaska or for many of my outdoor activities. They are light, warm, comfortable, and very practical.
