The shell in high impact areas is good cordura material. Airflow is great. I have 36" waist and 36" inseam and the large talls fit well. The area where this pant needs alot of help is the protection, It sux frankly. 2nd go round cause the first pair I tested...yup, went down in them. The new pair I put the knee armor from the pants in the hip protector slot and its a perfect fit, excellent for hips. Through the hip protection that came with the pants in the trash, spongy memory foam type stuff, worthless. Then I upgraded the knee armor with some Sas-tec which has much better coverage and "cups" the knee.
When I went down the stock knee armor slid off my knee allowing the side of my knee to loose some skin (understatement). Now with upgraded armor that "cups" my knee they are a decent pair of summer pants.
