Best pants... ever!
I know it is very subjective... depending on fit and need... but I just received a pair of BMW Cover Pants. WOW! Nice quality, water proof, easy on over anything you would want to wear underneath... zippers up and down in a snap!
They are bar none... the best pants for those who are looking for waterproof, mid/low-temp coverage...
I own a pair of all weather BMW Comfort Shell Pants, Ralley Pants, FT, etc... but just soooo impressed with the Cover Pants and wanted to share my experiences.
Best ever? I don't know about that, but they are very nice pants with that typical BMW quality. I have a pair and regret that I have to sell them. I just bought a nearly new pair used and they don't fit.
For me I love my Santiago pants. I know the seperate liners is a pain sometimes but I love that they wear like jeans, They are very cool even on the RT. If I think it might rain I just put the liners in at the start of the day. I've only been caught out once or twice.

I do love my Comfortshell jacket and pants... perfect in theoretical design... but would probably grab the Cover Pants for 99% of everyday riding due to versatility. Since armor is only as good if you use it, I think that usability factor took me over the top on these pants.
Well I hear your Comfortshell pants are "the bomb," as the kids say. I have buddy who raves about them and gloated when we got cold and wet and he ws warm and dry (this ws befoe I got the Cover Pants.
