I got a pair of these last summer. They are dry and solid yet light.

Wild things seems to cater to tall people - If I had known that, I might have gotten a medium instead of large. On the other hand they will fit over layers of insulated pants.

I plan to add clips to the front straps to make getting in and out w/ layers easier - maybe WT has already thought of that. Full side zips make peeing and on/off easy.

Their gear in minimalist , which I like except they need to have more pockets. This has 2 slit pockets on the chest - not enough IMO, but you can get to pants pockets easily enough. They are reinforced where needed.

Mine are eVent cloth - don't know if I got a test batch - they said they were switching to eVent for better breathing and weight.



But they did well in a day of driving rain practising crevasse rescue - I was toasty and dry.
