STP Length is wrong in listing

Reviewed by Roger the Biker from Wichita on Wednesday, April 28, 2010
Fit: STP lists two lengths for these pants. "Short" at 30", and "Long" at 31". I ordered the long, excited to get a pair of pants exactly my hem length. They arrived and they are 33" inseam. I'll have to shorten them.

Quality appears good, but I haven't used them, yet.

Features: I intend to use these for winter bike commuting as an outer shell. I thought the buckles at the leg cuffs would allow me to cinch up the cuffs for riding and uncinch them when I was off the bike. They are useless for this purpose, as the mechanism for cinching is difficult, and the wrong end of the strap is sewn into the pants. The buckle that secures the adjustment looks flimsy. It's hard to explain, but unfortunately, this buckle is of no utility for bike commuting. It may have other utility.

  • Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational
  • Length: Feels too long
