Good quality materials, and appears to be put together to last. Quite a bit of thought went into the design as well, all pockets, zippers, and adjusters are where you'd expect them, and function easily with gloves on. The pants are shaped with biking in mind, and are very comfortable in the saddle. Not too sure how functional that "cell phone" pocket would be, but it's useful for smaller items (chapstick, trail map, bandaids) I haven't used the inner liner yet, I'm wearing them over long tights this winter, but they also appear to be well made with a nice thick chamios that's correctly shaped. One thing to note, these seem to run a bit small. I have a 34" waist (really) and I bearly fit in a large.
