Good rain protection, but legs could be longer

Reviewed by Colorado rider from Glenwood Springs, CO on Monday, April 1, 2013
These pants have a nice fit, somewhat loose in the thighs to permit a layer underneath, and a well designed waist band. The material stretches for comfortable riding and the heavy wear areas at the seat and knees are reinforced. The only drawback is the length of the legs. When standing the fit is fine, but on the bike, the pants creep up above the ankle which exposes the top of your riding shoes and ankles to the elements. If you wore a waterproof bootie, that would cover the gap, but an extra 2 inches would make these pants 5 stars. For the price, that little flaw is something I can live with.
