I bought my pants for a bike tour (900 kilometers). Here is my summary of the assessment:
- Pockets but did not interfere unless they are used on the sides which are very convenient
- Padding is indeed thick, but very inflexible because it is not broken - looks really shit if you take just does not sit on the saddle but stationary or operating ;-)
- The pants have indeed passed, but the drive wheel it will start riding up. From other pants I know it so that adhesive strips are placed in so nem silicone-like material. Not in these pants. After 10 kilometers, the pants fit pretty to flood.
