    Rated2out of5byfromNot long enoughWhen the saddle presses puts the length of the inseam to the test, I end up with wet ankles. I don't have an abnormally long inseam, but these pants are simply too short for me. The elastic at the ankle cuff doesn't help, it ensures that when the cuff hikes up my sock from my pedal stroke, it stays there. Otherwise, the construction is of a good quality. I've had no problems, and I wear them quite often in PNW conditions. I won't buy these again and I don't recommend them to people who ask. Sure, the other pants in the market are often more expensive, but most have longer inseams and lack the pointless elastic at the cuff.

    Rated5out of5byfromGreat PantsI really like the pants. I ride to work daily for about 10 miles and the pants keep me warm and dry in rainy weather. They also fit very well.

    Rated4out of5byfromWarm and Dry, but...I have owned these pants for over a year and have used them for cycling and officiating soccer games late in the fall. They are very warm, waterproof and can be easily removed as the weather changes. However, after about 25-30 wear/wash cycles, I have noticed that the material loses its fit over time. I ordered the XL so that I could wear adequate base layers, but I now need to look into replacing them with a Large to compensate for the loss of fit.

    Rated2out of5byfromBetter to have something than nothing...I'm going to use the guidelines to get right to the point. - I use this product in the rain and in this new year that is the weather my commutes have given me. Wet roads, sprinklings to consistent rain, and puddles, of course! - What is nice about this pant it is not too baggy and overall the fit is great for me at 6 foot tall and 180lbs.Size medium. - What is not so great about it is that they really do not keep the water out. I mean sure, if you are going to go through puddles, some water will get in but, I typically kick my legs out to the side. Goofy looking? Sure. After my hour long commute home yesterday, which had some steady rain, nothing heavy, I found the pants were damp all along the insideand very wet from the knee down. Still if I rode without, my winter tights would have been totally soaked instead of a bit damp. My bike even has full coverage fenders on it. Really debating returning these but, they are better than nothing at all.

    Rated4out of5byfromwind and rain stoppersI use these for cold, wet commutes. As with any rain gear they could breath better. Excelent at blocking wind and keeping the rain out. I leave the legs unzipped to reduce condensation.

    Rated4out of5byfromGreat for nasty weatherI used it one time and it kept me nice and warm. It would be nice if it has pockets. Overall, a good buy!

    Rated4out of5byfromHands down best value for your moneyI use these Pants year round for my bicycle communte. Exterior shell is durable and repels water well. Zipper holds up well. My only complaint might be that the interior lining falls apart too quickly particularly in the crouch. They could use more reflectivity as well. All and all the best value for the money.
