Bought these pants mainly for colder weather riding and when there's a chance of rain, as I usually ride in Draggins if weather is good. Have used them on warmer days and also in heavy rain, so here's my opinion on how they rate. Haven't tested them on an off, and hopefully never will! RRP $199.95, got them for $189 online from ridgersedge Quality is great for the price, can't complain, looks like quite heavy strong stitching. The pants consist of three layers, the outer protective textile layer, a non detachtable waterproof lining, and a detachtable inner quilted lining which is about 3/4 long so they sit above most boots. Due to the non-detachable waterproof lining, theses pants do not breathe. I found wearing the pants without the thermal layer unbearable as your legs quickly stick to the waterproof lining as it becomes a sauna and restricts movement. Even on mildly warm days! Thermal lining is warm and easily detached for washing. These are cooler weather riding pants, would not buy as summer/all weather gear. Legs have boot zippers making it a breeze to put on/take off boots. Pants have a high waist and extra higher lower back cover, giving good coverage and protection when leaning forward. Belt gives good adjustability. Though knees are pre-bent, they are comfortable walking around in. Zippered fly is covered with a velcro flap, and is internally lined to stop water penetration. In summary the pants are waterproof and do a good job in that aspect. They come with foam CE knee and shin protectors which sit within the waterproof lining. I found these uncomfortable and they also take up a lot of room inside the legs, ended up taking them out. Which leads me to sizing. I worked to the Ixon sizing chart and bought the appropriate size - though they fit, they are on the tighter side especially with thermal liner & knee pads. I would recommend going one size larger!. Don't know why they wouldn't take into consideration the knee pads and thermal liner into their sizing! In summary, good quality for price Lots of features for the money good thermal/rain protection good comfort/adjustment (if you get right size!) buy a size larger if you intend to use knee armour not breathable, cooler weather pants, rather than all-season pants Hope that helps someone in choosing the right gear, especially with the cooler weather upon us.
