To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These are decently warm with proper layering underneath. The stitching, as others have mentioned, isn’t great, but as long as you don’t force your boots through the pants, and gently move the pants over the boots, it should be fine. I haven’t had a chance to test their water resistance, but they worked well in high single digit temps with negative wind chill (with the proper layering underneath of course).
Fit is good; I ordered 4XL to fit over my layered clothes, and it fits well with extra clothes.
Straps are elastic or stretchy like suspenders.
The reason for the 3 stars is there aren’t any pockets. I have to have access to my gear which I keep in my cargo pockets which are covered by the pants.
