The Burton Hellbrook Pant is very similar to the Helllbrook Premium pant but the one difference is this uses material associated with a standard shell pant that is more thin.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Turn On’s: Size M pants that fit well around my thighs, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and especially my wife.
Turn Off’s: M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic and people who can’t park inside the lines.
Fit: Mid fit means somewhat tight fit. This use to be considered tight but now their are skin tight so we call this semi-tight. Not much room in here for layering and feels pretty tight around the pockets.
Construction: Well made and should last a long time. I’ve owned a ton of burton pants and none have ever failed on me.
Insulation/Warmth: Just a pant with some decent fabric so it’s not a warmth provider but not an ultra techy shell either.
Waterproofing: 15k Burton waterproofing does a pretty good job. It’s no Gore-Tex pant but it’s good waterproofing for the price point.
Breathability: Missing a bit of breathability for those that heat up quickly. If you run hot like me you could get a little sauna crotch going.
Overall: It’s a great pant and works very well for the kind of rider that doesn’t spend a lot of time on their butt yet also needs a little extra waterproofing from time to time.
