Rated 5 out of 5 by Pekka Great for winter, autumn and spring
These are my second pair of these pants. Use them mainly for commuting and ride some 2000 kms every winter with them. Not a thing to complain yet these are (of course) quite hot when temp exceeds +5 dgs C.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Audaxer I didn't beleive a streatch item would be waterproof: I was wrong
I have a pair of Stealth Extreme bib tights for winter and Stealth Lite waist-ed tights for summer.
I put the Lite tights on at 8:00 pm on the first day of London Edinburgh London 1400 K Audax in 2009. The weather was incredibly bad, even for the UK in August. I kept them on for the next three days. On the return trip through Eskdale Muir it was like riding through a car wash in a wind tunnel. The organizers were stopping riders leaving the Control as it was thought too dangerous. I would wager I was the only rider anything like dry. I couldn't believe it.
I rode the Brain Chapman 600K Audax, (Chepstow to Angelsey and back), in mid-May in the Stealth Extreme in similar conditions. The weather "improved" mid afternoon on the second day to glorious sunshine punctuated by thunderous down-poors. I remained comfortably warm and dry.
I have had both for over 4 years now and they have worn very well. Highly recommendable.
When it starts raining it strikes through cold and you think they have failed. But within a few minutes you warm up and. on stopping, you find your legs are dry.

...and I was bone dry and really warm. With all the November rain here most of the water has been sitting on the trails and as I do not have mud guards fitted, I was getting soaked and cold while doing my night rides. With these on the lowers and with some water proof socks on I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to go out again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Good (with mudguards)
I have owned these for nearly a year and have worn them in some real heavy rain when commuting. Normally this is on the hybrid fitted with mudguards and I have stayed dry and sweat free. However this week I wore them when out on the road bike without mud guards and was caught out by a heavy shower. I was disappointed to find that the spray from the back wheel soaked me through these and the shorts underneath (you know where!) within 15 minutes. Not sure why. Not damaged and seams intact. Good kit but maybe not as waterproof as Endura claim? Use mudguards.
