The cut/fit is atrocious. I can't imagine who these were designed for. Can't pedal in these at all. They bind horribly. The fit in the waist is fine, although they are a bit short in back (plumber's crack... just a bit). Way too tight in the thighs, which is the main problem. Too loose down at the ankles. There are some elastic panels, but not nearly enough to allow comfortable pedaling. I was constantly having to fiddle/fidget with these, tug up on them here/there; then I could pedal for a bit. then they'd shift a bit and they would bind again. They are warm. But they are not very breathable at all. Clammy/wet on inside from sweat. I'm actually pretty shocked at how bad these are. These are my first pair of long MTB pants. Perhaps their main customers are DH riders that don't have to pedal at all. But for more general riding in cold/wet weather I would suggest looking elsewhere.
