Biking home one evening in a downpour and after my rain pants failed, I found these and bought them. I use them almost daily (winter in the PNW) to commute and I love the quality and fit of these (femaie, 5'6 and 120 pounds, i bought the small). It's the details on these pants that make it amazing - the smooth zipper action, the perfectly located pocket that opens up horizontally (useful when you're biking and want to reach for a snack or cell phone), the ability to cinch the pant legs tighter if needed and the reflective material. I bike daily and am very happy with this purchase.
It's not yet rainy season but I've had a chance to use them a couple times, so far so good (For biking and backpacking). I appreciate how lightweight they are, and the brightness of the reflectors. I'm a little nervous that they have zippers, I am concerned they will be the fail point with time but so far so good. I will update the review if I can after I've had a chance to use them in the rain more.
This pant compliments my Showers Pass Pro Cycle jacket well. Ample leg room fits comfortably over street wear. The waist doesn't pinch. Velcro calf warps increase visibility as well as guard against lower-leg puddle splash ups. The saddle inset is also water-proof so I don't arrive with a wet groin from lifting off the saddle as I ride. Ankle zippers allow me to pull the pant off without removing my shoes if I choose. Flat zippers along the side allow easy access to pockets too. This design of this garment is functional, comfortable, preforms exceedingly well and well worth the investment.
Pants look nice, are very waterproof and are very visible.
However, they are already showing wear in the right rear panel where there is reinforcement. For a $200 price tag, I expect them to last at least a couple years. I'm lucky to get a year out of them at this rate.
