I have heavyweight rain pants, but I decided to build something lighter out of sil-nylon or else a breathable fabric. It would be my size, 29" inseam.
Commonly, rain pants will have a slit up the inside of the leg to the knee, and this is used for going on over boots. The slit has to be closed. Should I use metal snaps, plastic snaps, or Velcro? If I use Velcro, I could use a strip for bunching the fabric for fit around the ankle.
