I've finally found a really HIGH quality textile pant with nice styling, comfortable fit, reflective stripes, and warm enough to ride within 40-60 degrees. First impression: amazingly high quality (that you expect from Scorpion gear), sturdy padding in critical knee/hip areas, very warm and soft thermal liner that can we used alone with the pants (removing the waterproof liner). The pants were actually a rather baggy fit near the bottom of the leg (can barely go over my Sidi Vertigo Air), but normal to slightly tight fitting towards the hip area (i'm 6'0" 195lbs and had about 1.5" of velcro to adjust either way). Still, way more comfortable than straight up leather pants. I can see myself wearing these pants far more often than my leather pants and my mesh pants. The only negative that isn't really a negative if you really think about it, is that the inseam is 2" too long. I normally can wear a 30", but a 32" would still cover my feet even when seated. But the standard 34" has plenty of slack even when you legs are bent in racing position. Good, bad, you decide... for walking around, yeah it's a bit crunched up, but for riding it's great! Overall, very impressed with the quality and fit!
