I've used these pants a couple times now and I'm quite impressed with the feel. They have been soaked from waves coming over the sides of the yak, fish sitting in my lap while taking off the hook and normal water drips from the paddle. The water hits the pants as with rain on the hood of your newly waxed car and slides right off. The water that does stay dries within a very quick.
The pants are very comfortable fit and don't restrict movement and are quite breathable and feel cool on a hot day on the water. You can also remove the pants legs by unzipping the pants legs and turn them into 8" shorts if you want.
When shopping for these types of pants I found a few other names brands with the same configuration which cost $60+ and I have been completely satisfied with this pair and plan to buy another pair in the future.
