I can't really really talk about durability or performance because I havent had the chance to wear them on the bike much. The sizing chart is spot on. I'm 5'9 about 150lb's with a 30 inch inseam so I bought the 48 and they fit real nice. Style wise they are what you see in the pics. They're pretty darn basic in appearance. Which isn't a bad thing. I guess they are "safe" in the style department. Nothing really stands out but the snap on the thigh. I was riding in jeans and I wanted something that wouldn't disintegrate once I hit the pavement. I also didn't want to wear leather pants because.... Lets face it. I just couldn't see myself in leather pants. All in all I feel like I made a good decision. I would suggest these pants to a friend.
