How do they fit ?
I'm looking for something to wear over my jeans for rainy comutes.

There is no "give" in these...they are just a 'shell' of rain-proof material. They run small, so make sure you order up (as Gore, like most bike clothes, runs small) to make sure they'll fit over your other pants, especially bulky jeans. I will tell you they are a bit "baggy", especially from the knees down, and as I found out for myself, and now recommend to others: get yourself a pants-leg band or strap...and I highly recommend the one Deuter makes ($11.00) as I stated in my other reviews.
And remember, they are only a shell, you will still need a good insulating baselayer/thermo tights come fall/winter to wear underneath these.
And again, if you can't find the size you think you need, go directly to Gore!
Hope this Helps!
