As a year-round commuter and winter-rider, warm clothing is essential. I bought these pants about month ago and they are great. They are warm and breathable and functional. They have plenty of large, deep pockets, some with zippers, and have reflective material, should you ride at night. I used them for a morning ride when the temps were ~34 degrees and never noticed the cold on my legs. I hesitated at first because of the price but can say with confidence they are worth the price, especially if you commute or do any winter cycling.
The fit is on-target (I have a 34" waist and got the large) though I would probably get one size bigger if I buy again, simply for ease of pulling them on and off.
