Very nice style however there is insufficient protection. No armor and not much padding. The pants run small. I'm a 36 waist and ordered 38 based on other user comments. They fit well but they are tight on the legs (I have a stocky build). If you are skinny or have skinny legs they'll fit you better. With the sheltex liner, they get a bit sweaty - wish they breathed a little better. I bought them primarily to use in the rain.
Best Uses: Poor Weather, Street Riding
Cons: Doesn't Breath, Insufficient Padding, No Armor

I bought the Craig Sheltex pants based on the Hein Gericke name and reputation. Believe me, I made a great decision! They may be the best all purpose motorcycle pant I've ever come across.
Two minor points of concern. 1) The waist size tends to run small. I'm a 35/36 and probably could have gone with a 38. It means I have to lose a few pounds. 2) The pants are somewhat heavy. But that becomes an advantage when you consider the outstanding protection you get.
These pants are unusually comfortable, made of iron, breathable, warm and waterproof. Think classic German engineering and Hein Gericke quality and design all rolled up into one. And the price. Unbelievable!
If you're in the market for a durable and stylish motorcycle pant buy these. You won't be sorry!
Best Uses: Long Rides, Off-Road, Poor Weather, Protection, Street Riding
