Does exactly what it says
4 day wet trip over Memorial Day weekend was met with snow, rain, high winds and hail as we passed through Colorado. These pants worked perfectly keeping me dry and warm in temps ranging from 23 to 68 degrees. Highly recommend them to anyone riding through such conditions!

PROS: Quality Material, Comfortable, Great Fit

CONS: A bit heavy

BEST USES: Travel, Cold weather, Wet Conditions

"Pleasantly surprised"
I was pleasantly surprised to find that these pants were as comfortable and warm as i have experienced , considering the price. I have owned expensive , well made apparel from other manufactures and i will confess , they are no better than these.I will continue to purchase Bilt products as long as they continue to produce such quality!

PROS: Quality Material, Comfortable, Great Fit, Very Warm

These are extremely high quality riding pants! I love them! Windproof and waterproof which makes them good to wear during cold and rainy weather rides!

Well built
The first pair I received were too big. I wear a size 38 and these were a little to big. I've ordered a size 36. I plan to wear them mostly without the liner in. I am very happy with the quality. I'll write a follow up review after a few wear's. The product description does not indicate that the seat is also covered with the same material as the knees. I got these on sale for half price...Bonus!

PROS: Quality Material, Attractive Design

Pay for what you get.
I was in the market for purchasing a pair of "Decent" riding pants to take me up to Alaska... here's my story.

I purchased these pants being assured by the store attendant that they were high quality, however, they did not have this item in stock so I ordered online.

I look like a clown in these pants, but in indoors climate I could immediately detect the thermal properties of the lining, great!

However: The very first time I wore these pants outdoors (it was raining) and within 10 minutes I was soaked.

Despite getting these pants on a super discounted deal, they're not worth the money I paid. Sorry Cycle Gear, these Bilt pants are awful.

My suggestion, buy the liners, and wear waterproofs over.

PROS: Comfortable

CONS: Unflatttering, Non-waterproof, Poor Quality

Can these be worn over jeans?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes! These can be worn over jeans. You might remove the liner to make more room for your jeans. These are wonderful pants by the way, very sturdy.
