Great, great pants...why did they have to change them?

Review by Rod

I absolutely love these pants! Perfect for all types of weather, but particularly helpful during NorthEast winters. They repel water very well and look professional enough so that I can wear them to work. I am very distressed that the new version has a button fly. I don't find button flys remotely functional. please bring back the zipper! I want to buy more of these pants!

These pants are ok I would't say great. I'm glad I got them on sale because I don't think they would be worth it otherwise.

Review by Brazy

I like the material of these pants. They are great for riding they stretch and fit tight. I normally wear a size 32 30 and I got the Medium. They're tight on the waist and long on the legs. Too long I have to roll them up for them to fit. It seems like they're made for someone 6 ft tall not 5'7 like me that's ok I can live with that. As for water resistant, I was under the impression that they would keep me dry in a downpour for some reason. Well in a rainy Northwest commute of 6 miles my thighs will still get soaked but they do dry faster than most so that's good. I don't like how if you wear a belt with these that it covers up the reflective Chrome emblem that's lame. The U lock holster is handy and it makes riding with my lock comfortable. The thing that annoys me the worst is that they developed these noticeable wear marks around my ass where I sit on the saddle and I've only had them for a couple of months now.

Excellent

Review by Santa Claus

I live in Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland and picked these up last August to try and weather the conditions this far up. I used them through Autumn, Winter, and now into Spring and can say they stand up to a lot of abuse. As the seasons change here you have to deal with pretty extreme cold (-40 some times), ice, snow, slush, rain, mud, the whole works. The true strength of these pants is their durability and their quick drying capabilities. With the conditions the way they are here it's inevitable that you will get wet, no matter the material, but with these once you're inside they're breathable enough to dry very quickly, so no soggy buns for too long. Also, any dirt/mud/grime that gets on these easily brushes off once you're out of the wet and you're good to go. I've washed them maybe a couple times since I bought them but no more, there hasn't been much need. Generally for the cold, I was fine with some wool long johns down to about -10F, so likely for the vast majority of people in the world they're going to be perfectly suitable.

As for the durability, they're quite tough. I can't see anything other than a major fall/slide poking a hole in these, and believe me, with the ice sheets that I have to ride across I've fallen a lot. They're actually quite soft, these pants, and after 8 months of break in they're even more supple, and are an extremely comfortable pair. After a while they mold to your body pretty closely. Keep in mind these are designed for cyclists so they have some pretty straight and wide thighs, which is perfect me and my cannon quads, but maybe not for everybody.

Overall they're a steep buy and I was kind of worried that I was buying something of a vanity product, but they've been equal to the task of biking around the Arctic Circle and more, I quite like them. Some downsides:
The long inseams are a bit of a nuisance, I had to roll mine up because i haven't bothered to hem them yet, though this does allow you some degree of customization.
Made in China. I'm usually not this kind of person to lament this, and the quality is great, but I would have liked to have gone for a product made in America. Especially at this price.
Colors: Would like to see some more diversity here

Okay, but not stellar

Review by Beth

Not a bad fitting pant at all, though the price did give me pause. I admit I waited a few months and then purchased mine at a discount. Ladies: If you are considering getting this, make sure your hips will fit inside the slim cut! Also, be prepared to hem the legs as they run quite long. (I had to take almost two inches off the legs in my waist size.) The fabric can snag and that's a bit disappointing for a garment this pricey. Fit is good, and when paired with an oxford shirt the pant looks dressy enough to get away with at my teaching gig. Overall, not bad but considering country of manufacture and all the niggling details mentioned above, I think they're overpriced for what you get. Decent, but needs improvement.

Great commuter pant

Review by mtbikemikel

I'm wearing them now! Rode to work in them this morning. Very comfortable pant. Nice flexibility and breath-ability. I just wish they had a few more color options.

Needs Improvement

Review by AB

Was upset to find that the pant leg isn't tapered in any way. Would've been an awesome product if the legs were even remotely tapered.

Too much material flapping around near the high ankle area for these to be riding pants. Returned them and bought a second pair of the Folsom short (which are the only riding short I swear by these days)
