Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous outstanding for wet cold
I used these pants on a longer inline tour. These shorts make weather from 4 to 15 degrees with wind and drizzle a comfortable experience. They let rain in for some extent
but never get really wet or let the wind through. Tailoring is perfect, elasticity is like chewing gum, and the smooth finish keeps the stain
s away. On the downside, the inner face of the fabric started to pillow up very early.
At last, should you need a cafè stop they dont make you look like a fifties tour hero.

These have quickly become my favorite short. I own several pairs of the Endura Humvees which I also enjoy due to their pockets, protection, and breathability. But what's nice about these shorts unlike the Humvees is that they truly blend in whether on MTB or Road(they fit snuggly so you don't have to worry about the shorts catching too much wind and slowing you down) or Walking/Hiking. They don't have the deep pockets But the pockets are usable and deep enough to shove your smart phone in or wallet and the rear pockets both zip up. These shorts are super stretchy in a good way, you won't have to worry if you get into an impromptu Karate match. Because they are stretchy I would recommend to get your size or even a size down. I wear an XL Humvee comfortably without being too baggy, while these I feel best in the L size though I own both the XL and L. It's important to get the right snug fitting size as the downside to these shorts are the belt loops. I don't think they'll fail but they are too thin and not enough of them to comfortably use a belt with or without worrying about them stretching oddly. And the Belt it comes with is probably better used on a pair of jeans, it seems like this belt is too rough and would eventually eat away at the loose belt loops. Other than that, I think these shorts are awesome. I'm looking to buy a few more pairs and a pair of the pants, I think they might be good for biking/hiking in my area in the fall/winter/spring months.
