Best thing about it: The quilted lining and Goretex membrane have never failed and riding in the cold, wet winter weather I’ve always remained warm and dry.
The pockets on the thighs are huge swallowing my purse, phone and earplugs with ease.
Teaming them with the Alpinestars Stella RK5 jacket makes a perfect combination for winter riding.
Worst thing about it: The sizing’s a little strange, the next size down I couldn’t breathe in so mine are just a little bit too roomy and when not attached to the jacket have a tendency to be a little indiscreet.
