Excellent product - except not as accurate as described since upsizing to a Large for being a Medium it’s slightly bigger then aspected. I would say it’s a fit as it can get but next time I would buy a smaller size The Gel padding is excellently made.
These pants are perfect for crisp N. California winter mornings. They are fairly warm to about 50F but below that, you may want to consider wearing long johns or something else underneath. They do a very good job of blocking wind and warm up as you ride but below 50F my legs started feeling slightly chilly. The fit is very comfortable with an elastic waist and drawstring so they don't fall down. I'm 5'11" and ordered L which is just barely long enough for my 34" inseam but I think the XL would feel too baggy. Overall, a great value and they are effective at keeping legs warm.
My bits and pieces fully endorse these pants! 30+ mile bike rides have never been more comfortable (as can be expected on a bike). At first I thought the pants were a little small for the size but have come to realize they fit a little snug for a reason...to keep everything where it should be! I also have a knee issue and do not need to wear my compression sleeve for it while wearing these pants to ride (may just be me but it is an added benefit none-the-less)
Today is the first autumn-like weather in my state. The temp is around 62° with a slight breeze, nothing challenging and I decided to wear these out on my bike ride. The fit was perfect and I was excited to do some cool weather cycling. When I first got going I noticed the chill on my legs but thought that would go away once I warmed up. But the chill never went away. And after about 25 mins riding I turned around and went home. You might think 25 mins would be a good ride but I had planned to ride around 40 miles, my usual. If these aren't good for a mild coolness they'd never fit the bill 10° colder. So shopping again. Any suggestions?
I picked the wrong size and had to return. Anyway I was disappointed by design in general. The ventilation openings (green areas) are located in wrong places so the knees are getting chilled while back side is covered. In good design knees are always protected from the incoming air flow to prevent chilling and back side of the knee area made from mesh material to enable heat and moisture release. Also padding is kinda offset to the front which feels weird.
I have another pair of pants from another seller. These pants though fit great. The padding is where is it should be vs my other pants seem a bit off. I will definitely buy again. I'm 5'10 195lbs and I ordered the medium size.
