Good way to keep some skin on your legs and less on the rocks
Great way to cover your legs, fit is good, snug but not tight, and there is room to wear a pair of cycling shorts if you choose. I use them for all mountain riding especially on the rocky stuff. The material seems to be tough enough to handle some tumbles and yet it's seems not too heavy or hot (that said I have not worn them in the summer yet) . I should mention the fit is slim so don't be afraid to go a size bigger. The zippers and the velcro closures on the lower leg section really make for a convient way to get a nice snug fit and still slip you foot through.
