Also, pockets would be very nice. It really should be a staple in bicycling apparel now. Clothing without pockets is just a bad marketing choice in my opinion. Cyclists need options, many of them, depending on what ride faces them that day. If you were going to spend your hard earned $$ on 1 pair of pants, you need as many features as it can offer.
I'm 6'4" and 200lbs. I don't wear a size medium in anything...expect these pants.
I normally wear a size 33 waist and 36 inseam in pants. I tried the M, L, and XL in these pants. You only get 0.5 inches more length on the inseam for going up a size, but the waist get HUGE quickly. The XL was way too big. The L was big, but I could make it work. The M was a good size, but the 1 inch shorter inseam was noticeable from the XL.
I plan to use these pants when I would also being using my overshoes. The overshoes I use come up high enough to close the gap. If I rode without overshoes there would be a big gap between the bottom of the pants and the start of the shoes that would just be covered by my socks. I wish they made a tall size.
I use these overshoes: Endura Road OverShoes - Men's
The whole WxB line seems very weather proof. They have an inner layer membrane that seems likely to keep most rain/water outside. However, like other reviewers a pocket or two would be kind of nice and with that membrane mentioned their breathability seems questionable. I think if you're using an inner tight for some moisture wicking you should be good, but on a warmer day it might run on the hotter side. I rode the other day in light rain and upper 40's with these and was comfortable (had a pair of shorts on underneath since I don't have a separate padded liner at this time and was a little warm in certain 'areas').
There is a reinforced crotch and inner-legs, which is nice/ needed.
The zipper at the bottom saved me last Friday because I biked to work in the rain, changed. And went out with some friends for a happy hour. It was still raining and I just popped these boys back on and rode home with my khakis under them. They stayed dry, and I stayed happy.
I wipe them down with a wet washcloth or rinse in mild hand soap then hang dry, so far that's worked fine for these.
Also sizing (waist in inches):
Small: 29-31 inch Medium:31.5-34.5 Large:34.5-37.5 XL:37.5-41.5
Had to get these off the website.
I wear a 34 waist and the large is fairly roomy. if you're at the upper end I suggest ordering a size up.
During summer rains, this pant did not breathe as expected. My legs were as wet from perspiration as they would have been from the rain.
Bottom line: not as breathable as advertised, quite capable of ripping, but they nonetheless remain my standby for cold or rainy commutes.
