Cycling pants? Hardly. No stretch in the crotch means getting a leg up on the saddle is a wrestling match. What's more, the fabric tightened when I did put my leg up over the saddle. Two months of occasional use, and I had put a hole in either leg at the upper inside corner of the cargo pocket because the non-stretch of the fabric was pulling tight there every time I put a leg up.
Two months of use, and the pants exploded with a 1-foot tear at that weak point. I rode home with my underwear blowing in the breeze.
These look awesome, and the fit is great. They were my new favorite pant... but the action of climbing on and off the bike tore holes in both legs right where the cargo pockets come to a corner. The gusseted crotch wasn't wide enough, so the pants pulled tight on my thighs whenever I put a leg over the saddle.
This stretched them tight and eventually tore the holes. Not cyclist approved. I'm in great shape so it wasn't me.
Oh well. Too bad I didn't buy them from Backcountry- I could have returned them!
