Roda DS ride yesterday...riding my Tiger 800XC in Florida.
As already mention, great quality, well sewn & nicely thought out.
Here's my input...
The "Cinch' straps around the ancle area are facing the wrong way, they face forward when closed & get pulled open. The Velcro on the calf section does a great job keeping the pant leg closed & I will cut the strap off.
I believe most will find these pants too short, they ride real high when seated. Fine while you are standing, howeve come up high on teh boot when sitting & having no elasticity in the knee area limits easy movement of the knee. Left home at about the temp being high 50's, they kept me warm, as the day got up to 70 I opened the vents & they worked well....just keep moving.
Pockets are great & nice to have the small zipper pocket. They washed well today & ready to go.
Shipping was ultra fast & customer service is a great!!!
With some refinements , thses will be a great alternative to Klim & others.
Thanks
