|Men's Thermal Wind Pant - Size Chart|
|Size||Waist (inches)||Inseam (inches)|
It warmed up and was 36f and raining on my ride to work today and to my surprise they kept out the rain as good as my hard shell pants did.
I like the stretch in the material as I can have full leg motion.
I am wearing them with regular bike shorts underneath. For colder temps, below 10f, I wear fleece lined bib shorts and they were adequate.
The only thing that would make them better is if they had belt loops, or maybe a way to attach suspenders as I do not love the draw string .
On a recumbent, the wind gets to the back of my legs a little, but not bad. They would be perfect for an upright bike.
I couldn't have been more pleased.
The fit, as others have mentioned, is roomy. I have a 34 inch waist and bought the mediums. I still have room for street clothing underneath.
They are comfortable on and off the bike. They are warmer than my winter riding tights.
During the winter I often wear high top hiking boots instead of cycling shoes and the stretchable ankles allow the pants to be worn over the boot tops. I expect that this will help my feet will stay dry.
I think that the fabric is very tough. The left pant leg survived an energetic dog bite with only light scuffing on the outside and no puncture of the material even though there was a "healthy" puncture in me!
They appear to be well put together. Last year I bought a pair of AeroTech Touring Shorts and proceeded to put them through a 26 day tour followed by three months of daily use and they have held up extremely well. I think that there is a good chance these pants will be equally durable.
One or more Zippered pockets cargo would be nice
I would prefer belt loops to the drawstring
So far, I have not ridden with them in the rain
Sizing is pretty close, maybe a little loser than need be, and plenty long for a short guy.
And YES, I would recommend these - no hesitation.
Highly recommend ....well made.
