OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.
Fully seam sealed and packable into its own back pocket, this innovative men’s rain pant from the Columbia Titanium collection delivers absolute waterproof protection and ultralight breathable comfort to keep you going, even in the middle of a downpour. The Outdry Ex Gold Pant’s fine-tuned, technical construction features articulated knees for great mobility, external seam tape for reinforcement against the elements, and a bevvy of zippered pockets to securely store your stuff.

Tested in White MountainsI was skeptical at first based on other reviews, but I was extremely impressed with how these pants held up. Pants are completely waterproof as advertised, water beaded right off. Best feature is how breathable they are. I worked up quite a sweat, and while my arms and body were drenched from my heavy shell, my legs were totally comfortable in these pants. They do run a little tight, they're more of an athletic fit than baggy, but it's not a big deal to me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Terrible fit.I ordered a size small. I have about a 31 inch waist and the size charge said 32 inch waist for the small. The waistband is fine and the length are fine.
Unfortunately, these pants are too tight in the inner thigh and crotch area. If I lift my legs as high as possible to step over something, I feel like I may rip this pants at the crotch. Leg movements in certain directions are met with resistance.
I am a skinny guy so I can see how this would be an even bigger issue with most other people. If I went with a size medium the waist band would be way too huge.
The fit of these pants is slim from the knees up and flared from the knees down. This is not a good fit for rain pants! They should be baggy in waist and slim tapered in the legs. This is not a common/popular pant fit so maybe Columbia was concerned about fashion? It seems like they took a pair of there standard hiking pants and copied the fit into rain pants. These are in desperate need of a crotch gusset ideally made out of stretchy fabric.
These pants are also extremely noisy which is something I was willing to deal with for the impermeable face fabric technology.
One good thing is they only weigh 9 ounces. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Leg zipper to shortThe zippers on the legs are too short to allow putting the pants on over my size 14 shoes. Also, you need a belt to hold them up as there is no elastic in the waist.
Returned for a refund and will look at other rain pants with longer leg zippers.

Outdry EX Gold PantsThese pants keep the rain out, but still don't breathe well enough for me on a strenuous hike. You need a belt to keep them up, so now you have a belt on your hiking pants, then another belt on your rain pants. It's not very comfortable when hauling a pack.

Great rain pants except a BELT IS NEEDEDWater runs off and the pants do not wet-out at all. A few shakes leaves them dry. Pockets are roomy. The pants are compact enough to fold up and put in a small dry bag.
The ONLY flaw is that a BELT is needed to hold the pants up. I have a 35" waist. The large size pants fit well in the legs but the waist is too big. The pants come with 2" belt loops but do not include a belt or any elastic in the waist band. Without a belt or elastic, the pants slip down several inches and the bottom of the legs drag on the ground. This is an incredibly dumb design oversight. Some elastic in the back of the waist band would make these THE BEST RAIN PANTS EVER.

Outer Material Doesn't WetWater beads up on this material and does not wet it. After coming in out of the rain, an few shakes essentially leaves the outside dry. Pockets are roomy and these are compact enough to fold up and put in my rain jacket pocket. They are supposed to fold into the back pocket but this is quite a chore. It's easier to just either roll them or fold them up for carrying.
