It got the job done. On cold days I was colder, on wet days I was wetter, but I never complained. I didn't think these pants were badass, so I didn't expect them to be.
Would definitely only recommend these pants for casual riders. Since this is a review, I get a chance to bitch now, so it kinda did suck on days where you'd snowboard whistlers peak and, with windchill, it was something like -30 to -40 degrees Celsius. Or on days on the north shore of Vancouver where it would rain an ass load. Eventually, I got used to stashing an extra pair of undies and pants in the car for the after-party.
