I bought these over the winter, but couldn't really give a review because I hadn't ridden with them yet. Today I did. I find them to be very comfortable and warm. I especially like the storm gator on the bottom of each leg which keeps cold air from rushing upwards. The bottom velcro strap keeps the bottom snug against my boot which is nice when walking as I bought these a size larger than normal and it keeps them from dragging on the ground. I don't like overpants to be tight when riding otherwise I'm constantly fidgeting trying to get comfortable.
One thing I knew I'd be giving up with these is the ability to easily put them on over boots. It's just not going to happen. Perhaps with the liner out, but even then you have to contort a lot to do it. I'm okay with it because I didn't buy them to be pulling them on and off a lot. My old pair of overpants will work for quick trips to work and back.
Overall I'm quite pleased with them and will be using them on a trip to Colorado later in the spring. That's when I'll find out how well the leg vents work.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ordered this because I wanted a light-weight cover for the bike while traveling. There have been a couple of times where the parking areas were covered with trees and the bike ended up with sap and other junk on it. This is easy to put on and even with my windshield and top case the cover goes all the way down to my tires (I ordered a size large). The little connectors aren't much, but will do the job. This will be nice to travel with as it doesn't take up a lot of space and weight. I'd say it's a very good product for the price considering how I plan to use it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
