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: Decent fit for my body type and I like most Sig Fit pants.
Construction: Well made for it’s price point.
Insulation/Warmth: It’s hard to find Men’s pants with insulation in them. Usually you are just lucky to find fleece liners in some or all of the pant. So when you see a pant with 40g insulation at this price it’s not bad.
Waterproofing: 10k 2 Layer insulation isn’t anything to write home about these days but it does keep some water out and as long as you keep them maintained and re-waterproof here and there then you have a pretty warm functional mountain pant for the price.
Breathability: 5k Breathability isn’t very much these days so it’s not going to regulate your moisture.
Overall: If you don’t ride a lot of days a year or ride in a dry climate then this will work well.
