Do what they're supposed to do.
on 9 March 2013
I cycle a lot and in all weather conditions. After umming and ahhing for ages I finally gritted my teeth and forked out the hundred quid plus for these trousers, and though I had to wipe away bitter tears at the cost I'm bound to say they seem worth it so far. Like goretex clothes are meant to, they keep the rain off while allowing you to sweat, very important if you ride a bike. Each leg has a zipper at the bottom running the length of the calf, making it easy to put them on and take them off. They also have velcro seals around the ankles and at mid-calf, which is a nice touch and helps to insure they don't get caught in the chainrings.
My only reservation is durability. Will they be able to withstand the constant pressure of my not entirely sylph-like rear end on the saddle? Only time will tell, and if they don't last I'll update this review accordingly.
So far however, I'm well pleased.
Had them for a year now. Worn them lots of times and no sign of wear at all.
