Long side zips make these North Face easy to get on over boots and for venting to allow condensation to dissipate – needed as the fabric isn’t that breathable. The fabric is soft but the fit is rather baggy as the knees aren’t shaped. Weight and price are slightly high.
Pros: long side zips
Cons: quite baggy, not that breathable, only one leg length, quite heavy
