I am a tall (6'6") cyclist and needed a rain or cold weather pant that was long enough to protect my legs during the entire pedal stroke while not binding on any part of the leg. These pants did the trick! The pants are loose enough to allow for undergarments during extremely cold weather yet cause no problems while riding. The velcro strap at the bottom of the leg allows the rider to tighten the leg even more to protect against problems with the chain. Thses pants were exactly what I was looking for and for a great price!!
I ordered the XL and I am 5' 11", 220 lbs. The waist is very snug and will likely be too tight over layers, and I wear a 36 waist in pants. The length is spot on, if not a little long. There is plenty of room in the seat, but not quite enough to look like MC Hammer pants.
I ordered these pants for my son, as he works outdoors on an apple farm trimming trees. Normally this time of year a Carhart type line coverall is needed but we have had such a mild winter he need something lightweight and durable as they use pole saws and large clippers. At first I thought they would be too small to fit over his "oversize" jeans and they do have a long waist which is not his style at all. He has used them several times on warm or rainy days to keep dry. They have held up well under those conditions. I especially like the reinforced shins as this seems to be the place nylon pants rip. They wash and dry well. I am pleased with the quality and the price I paid for them and would purchase another pair for my fisherman husband or for myself for outdoor activities.
