Just bought these pants. I took them on a 376 mile round trip from Westchester County to Binghamton, New York, the first part of which was pouring rain. I stayed warm and dry (except for my boots, which is another story). I took them on a 5 hour round trip into the Catskill Mountains (near Hunter Mt.), they worked great. I am very pleased with the pants and would recommend them to anyone hoping to extend their riding season into late fall, or for an early start in the spring.
Bought these pants three years ago for a winter ride in Mexico. They are the most comfortable, warm, best made riding pants I have ever owned or seen. With six exterior and interior pockets they offer great convenience. Totally water proof!!! In the mountains with snow, ice and 30 degree temperatures I was warm dry and comfortable. The insulated liner can be worn separately when not on the bike which is a great traveling feature. Highly recommend these pants. From me they get 5 stars in all categories for performance.
I LOVE these pants for winter riding...fit is awesome and very comfy, and they do keep me warm. However...they ONLY Water Resistant and NOT Waterproof. Even on a Goldwing, which sheds most of the rain off of you....your butt and legs will get wet. Otherwise...an awesome pair of pants!
