This past weekend I wore these pants at a boy scout camporee in Louisiana. The temperature remained in the mid-30 degree range with 85% humidity, light winds and intermittent rain. Having lived in both Louisiana and Maine, I get chilled more readily in the damp winter conditions of Louisiana than I did in the drier frigid cold of Maine. Most of my time during the weekend was spent standing or sitting around, watching the boys instead of my more typical, more active backpacking trips. The Cocoon Pro Side Zip pants fit the bill perfectly once I got the right size...they do run large. They are easy to get on and off, repel the rain very well, and are very comfortable. At night under my tarp, I wore them with my Pro 90 quilt and I was completely comfortable. They were just what I wanted and I love 'em.
