Knickerbocker at Windham NY
The articulated knees for the Knickerbocker is a good one. A century ride will brake them in. It even stays put when I do a hand stand on the video below:
How does this Polartec Power Shield Stretch...
How does this Polartec Power Shield Stretch Woven with Hardface Technology material compare to the other CutterTech knickers that are made with Nylon Stretch Softshell ? Are there any other differences between the two knickers?
Here are the two knickers that I'm comparing:
These are basically the same, one is from our first round of production and the other from round 2. The fabrics will be very similar, the only real difference is the color choice.
I was a bit apprehensive about spending the money for biking pants with no chamois. Now I'm kicking myself for the months that I spent riding without these. They are absolutely the most comfortable pants I have ever ridden in. They move exactly like riding pants should. I had no problem with any bunching pulling. The back doesn't slip down, so you don't end up mooning traffic or other riders. Throw on some long socks, and I've ridden these in the low 30's while there was still snow on the ground with no problem.
I would recommend these with reservations
These knickers are nice, the attention to detail that Cutter has is impressive. These are baggy, stretchy, comfortable and pretty decent for chilly and wet Chicago riding. They are cut too short in the legs though. I'm constantly pulling them back below my knees as they ride up and then bunch behind my knees. Still looking for the perfect knickers but these are a farsight better than those damn Endura Humvee knickers that have gone into my dumpster.

When can I expect the Cutter reorder? If I wear a 31 in the waist, should I go with a small or a medium?
These are pretty sweet, they are really nice material for cycling and keep you very comfortable. the only gripe is that for me the fit is a little weird around the knee area, which doesn't really bother when riding, but when not on the pedal it feels a little funny.

The knicker reorder will be in stock early march.

Is a knicker really worth $100? I didn't even pay that much for the Prana Zion pant\knickers that are super quality.
These are a heavier, more weather resistant fabric than pants like the Prana Zion. Think Softshell.
Agreed with Cory. Also, these are far more durable than your yoga shants.
I really like the stretchy feel of the material on these. After many rides, the seat area has not worn through. 'Other brands' have issues like the seat wears through after 5 rides, not the Cutters! These knickers seem abrasion proof.
The material is stretchy enough that you don't feel the bunching that you sometimes get with knickers that have a velcro closure.overall - pretty cool ... I gave 4 stars instead of 5 only because at this price it should have a removable liner/chamois, imo =)
i'm 6'1 and 210, 36 waist - the XL fits loosely, just the way i like!

Cutter Knickerbocker in Action
Quick cell shot I took while commuting the other day. I still stand by my review. These are money. They are the only bottom I've worn commuting for the past two months.
I've these knicks for a little over a month now. This morning they finally got their first wet weather test, and I'm pleased to say they exceeded my expectations. It was a typical Seattle fall drizzle on my ride to work, and the water beaded up and rolled right off even better than my rain jacket (which is admittedly overdue for a treatment.
I think they're perfect for fall/spring riding, and I've worn them on mornings as cool as 38 degrees in perfect comfort thus far, and I expect they'll be good down to near freezing before I need to switch to wool. They're a little on the warm side when it gets over about 60 degrees, but I'm generally riding something a little lighter at that temp.
The cut is pretty true to size (I'm generally a 34-36 waist and the L fits perfectly) and the style is ideal for casual commuting or cruising around town - the articulated knees and stretch in the fabric make them very comfy and they don't bind or ride up where they shouldn't. I usually ride with a chamois base layer, and these accommodate/hide the extra layer just right.
They're well worth it, but a little steep at full price. I got mine during the Sag Wagon sale for under $100, and I've seen them on Bonktown a few times around $80.
Knickerbocker is Money
So far I've put in about 15 days on the Cutter Tech Knickerbocker and I don't have a single negative thing to say about them. They hardly look like they've been worn. So pilling, abrasions, or other signs of wear.
First things first, I'm about 6' tall, 180 lbs. I typically wear a 34" waist in pants and they fit a little big. I have a medium in the Knickerbocker and fit around the waist is perfect. Just a little loose but they don't slide down. Length is just past my knees.
I've worn these on rides from everything from 40 degree mornings, to 85 degree sunny afternoons, 50 degree downpours, to 80 degrees with high humidity. They were comfortable and excelled in all conditions. They do get wet in heavy rain (imagine that) but repel light rains. They don't cling or snag when wet either. They do dry quickly.
The stretch fabric offers great range of motion. No tightness when swinging my leg over the bike to get on or off. It moves with you when you ride.
Plenty of pockets to store phone, keys, wallet, patch kit, small camera, u-lock ...pretty much anything you want. When empty you hardly notice that there's extra pockets.
These are now my go-to bottoms for anytime I ride. I wear them everyday when I commute. I would recommend them 100% to anyone and everyone.

Yup, that's Velcro.
any chance medium will be back in stock?

I was wondering this too, and asked on the live chat, they said no more on order :(. Backcountry.com, the people would highly appreciate a reasonably priced softshell knicker, please order some more!
nice but not long enough
I like the fabric and the weight and could be happy with these knickers if only they were longer. My problem is that I'm thin and six feet tall. The medium (which is a little large for my 32 waist size) isn't long enough to stay comfortably below my knees. The fabric rides up to where my knees are exposed more than they should be in a cold breeze. Needs to be about three inches longer.
I would recommend these for shorter guys who are looking for an unpadded cycling knicker for cool weather.
