The SAND Pants offer a double PWR/shell seat and PWR/wax coating on the inside of the legs, for a better grip on the bike. The legs are also versatile thin enough to wear inside the boot, but wide enough to wear over it. Watercatchers prevent water from creeping up into the leg, and a detachable thermal lining and removable 3-layer membrane round out the total comfort of the SAND trousers.

I bought these specifically to put over medical scrub pants for my commute to work on cold mornings, and they are PERFECT for that task. The three liners make them extremely warm (warm enough that now I want the Sand jacket) the padding is nice and while the pads do shift when you walk around, they slide right into place when you get on the bike.
The sizing is a little tough. I am fairly tall, and wear a 32x34 jean, which by the sizing chart is a medium. I bought a large as I was planning on wearing the pants over scrubs or skinny jeans, and when I got them, they were too short. I exchanged for a large long, and truthfully, they could even be a little longer! they ride up to about 4 inches above my ankle when I'm on the bike, which is fine when I'm wearing boots, but I wear sneakers when I'm commuting to work and end up with wind-blasted ankles.
Besides that, these are warm, waterproof comfortable pants, and I'd definitely recommend them.

At this lower price range, I wasn't expecting much, but this was my first textile jacket and it's great. The fit is spot on (6'1" 180 lbs, Large) The jacket moves tons of air at speed, and from my limited experience, the protection is great.
The thing that really blew me away is the look - I got the grey with red stripes on the upper arms and while I initally wanted black (but decided on the lighter color due to the heat factor) - and now I can't believe I wanted a dark jacket. It looks great and I get tons of compliments.
It's definitely a summer jacket, you really have to layer if you want to wear it on cool mornings in the spring/fall, but again, for this price, I couldn't be happier.
