Very comfortable. Unlike jeans or Carhartts, they're slightly stretchy, giving a better range of motion. As an outer layer, the water-repellent fabric kept me dry in a light rain and also blocked some wind, proving useful in mild to moderate weather. They retain warmth when wet—a nice feature if you take a dip in the pond, or tend to sweat while setting up decoys. Remarkably, they did not seem to capture odors, even after long stretches without a washing.
