Haven't worn them on the hill yet, so this review is all about looks and fit. These are probably the coolest looking pants I own, or have seen anywhere... for much more coin. The construction is top-notch. The grey color has a nice texture to it. I'm 6' 200 lbs., muscular build; the large fits nicely. If you have thinner legs, a medium will probably set you straight. Length is fine, comparable to other pants I have.
