About 3 or 4 years ago I ordered a pair of these pants. Due to a weight gain and subsequent weight loss and a slight alteration to the pants, I am wearing them this year. Although they are pricey, they are the best pants I've found in my 13 years of riding, and believe me, I've tried a bunch.

See www.tigerangel.com, click on "Products," click on "All Weather," and click on "Element Pants."

These are custom made to your measurements. Don't be vain when you're doing the measurements--don't suck in your gut! The fabric breathes very well and the pants are cool in hot summer weather.

I paid $300 for mine. I see that the price has gone up to $360.
