Bought pair of these for aurumn-winter-spring singletracking. Their not very breathable, take forever to dry, and the inner fabric makes them really uncomfortable if you dont wear layers beneath. These are water repellant, but you should be able to find even waterproof pants with better breathability.
With the pretty good windprooffing, Im using these pants as an outer layer when biking in -15 to +5C during the winter. So not much use for the zip to shorts -feature. They seem to be pretty rigid though, havn't been able to damage them yet.
