Will these pants work for light snow. Live in the south.


Absolutely! These are waterproof, so they will work to repel snow and rain. They are not insulated, though, so you would need warm pants under them, if you go into cold temps.

Don't throw a shoe!

No need to take shoes on and off after rainy dog walks! Fully unzip these babies and they slide right over your shoes or you can unzip and detach both sides for easy hanging and drying. The zippers are bomber, after 2 years of use, not a single issue...

Don't throw a shoe!
