        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Deluge Rain Pants:

        First outing with these pants proved disappointing. While snowshoeing up a small mountain in NH in 15" of snow one slip and fall on my knee proved tragic for these pants. Knee of the pants totally torn open leaving my knee exposed to elements.

        good but not good enough

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Deluge Rain Pants:

              There are two areas for which I couldn't say this pants is good.

              1. Waist is too tight. Average regular waist size is said to be 34. If so, why Medium is 32-34. It should be 33-35. It is very tight to wear over my pants. I am 34.

              2. I wear Deluge jacket, this pants and rubber overshoes over a pair of leather shoes. Up to the ankle, it is perfect but the rain comes through strings area because this pant's bottom is rubber squeezed and does not cover the shoes well. The bottom should be wider so that it covers the whole shoes. I have another Gore Tex pants similar to this with the loose bottom. This covers entire leather shoes. Unfortunately, this does not have a front zipper and I purchased EMS's. Can't say which is better.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Deluge Rain Pants:

              I put these pants to good use on a 12 mile snowshoe trek in the Whites last weekend and they worked well. They were easy to get on/off over my boots and kept me dry and protected from the wind. I wore a pair of micro fleece pants under them and while hiking unzipped the sides about 10 inches, worked great. The reason for four stars is I think the cut on these is just a bit too baggy, but for being a summer rain pant, they performed great. Can't wait to get caught in some cold spring rains to really try them out! lightweight technical fabric has it's limitations as far as durability is concerned, and the sooner you realize that these pants are RAIN pants and not ski/snowboard pants, the longer they will last. Thanks EMS for another great product! Now if I could only find a pair of large Helix pants...

                  I used these pants as part of my layering system and raingear for a trek to summit Kilimanjaro. The full leg zip allows for very easy layering and cooling. You can put these pants on without removing your boots since there is a full side leg zipper, and similarly the pants are also easy to remove even while keeping your boots on. I bought the men's pant, since at the time they didn't make a version of this pant for women, and the fit was still fine and comfortable (not much extra baggage in the front). I would highly recommend these pants given that they keep you dry and the full leg zip is essential for efficient hassle-free changes on the mountain that are required when the weather suddenly changes.

                        These pants have good waterproof breathable qualities, thanks to the Gore-Tex fabric. Construction is pretty good.

                        Unfortunately, I have to echo the feelings of others who've said that the lower leg is way too baggy. It's a baggy straight-cut fit. So generous that you could put them over gaitered tall winter boots and still having a lot of room to spare. But then, if you're going out on snow and ice, you might want something heavier than this. So I'm not sure what the application is for the cut.

                        You may also want to be aware that it's not quite a true full length zip - the zipper actually ends just below the waistband. This wasn't an issue for me, but may be of concern or benefit to others.

                                The Deluge pants are a step above the less expensive EMS pants which I previously purchased about 3 years ago.

                                I use the pants for walking in all kinds of weather.
                                I recently wore them in a heavy rain- and my jeans and socks were completely dry.

                                Pros- a front zipper and an adjustable waist belt.
                                Cons: they are a little long- but this will not be an issue for people under 5'7". The length of the pants do not interfere with keeping pants legs and socks dry.

                                This is an excellent product.
