We never used the bottoms because we were blessed with excellent weather on our land portion. There were only two times when inclement weather hit. The worst was crossing the Gulf of Alaska when we had sub-hurricane winds causing 30-35 foot waves. Not many people at dinner that night! The other was in Skagway when it is drizzling and foggy - just plain miserable. It was not bad enough to put the trousers on. Nevertheless they were great insurance and we certainly used the jackets more as windbreakers than rain deflectors.
