These Flex Pants are amazing. They aren't the most form fitting or stylish but as far as functionality and value these are the best I have seen. I originally ordered the Alpinestars ST5 Drystar pants - a sleek sporty cut however too hot and not versatile enough for what I needed (comfort in riding in rainy 30 degree weather to 100 degree summer heat). I returned the pants and received these the same week - New Enough customer service is exceptional! I am on a budget like most and these pants are the do all answer. I rode with them in 80 degree heat the first day I received them - took out in liners and the outer panels and the pants let in so much air it was almost too chilly at times - something that will be nice when the temp hits the 100s. Then the next week a storm rolled in and the pants with no liner but the exterior panels keep me comfortable & dry in light rain. The obvious pros are the versatility, the reflective side piping & the fact they zip into my cortech jacket. The few negs are the knee pads are somewhat uncomfortable on when no liners are in and the pants are a little puffy in the hips. I found that this is due to the sizing range, I bought the 32-34 size and wear a 32 normally. I found that if I fully expand the waist to 34 the puffiness decreases alot. So keep this in mind and that they fit true to size when you order if you care. Hope this helps & thanks again New Enough!
