I use these to get to work without getting wet. Perfect for the morning rain. They do not breathe very well, but they are pants so it is not that big of a deal. They fit a little tight but you can take off the suspenders which helps. The water-resistant pad in the back is perfect for someone like me who does not have fenders on their bike. I really appreaciate that feature.

Rarely am I disappointed with an STP purchase, but these were doubly disappointing. The first pair that I bought fit poorly despite the waist size being correct to my order. The rise was so low that, even with fully extended suspenders, it still felt like I was getting a "wedgie" from these knickers. Sent them back for the next larger size. The fit wasn't great, but good enough to keep them, I thought. I took a short ride in them, and found them reasonably comfortable. When I took them off, I found a 2 inch hole in the back of the left leg above the knee. The excess velcro strap from the tightened down leg opening had caught on the back of the pantleg and had chewed a hole as I pedaled, each pedal stroke taking another nip. I did not feel this happening, so it was quite a surprise to see the hole when I removed the knickers. I had noticed however that the excess velcro from the suspenders often snagged my bike jersey as I sometimes stood to pedal, though no hole was formed. Sent the second pair back as well, and am now waiting for this to be resolved. Shipping both ways twice was costly, and I have nothing to show for it but a slightly snagged bike jersey. Little wonder that these are closeouts. Steer clear of these!
