As excellent as the Talos Gore-Tex jacket that matches it
I loved the matching Talos Gore-Tex jacket so much that I quickly ordered these pants to match. (Rather than repeat all my comments about build quality, it's probably easier to just read that review.)
Pros (again, see the jacket review): extremely comfortable, excellent build quality, excellent features, excellent adjustability, very good knee and shin armor placement, apparently very waterproof (though I've not gone riding in an absolute downpour), simple-to-use liners, excellent pockets, great styling. The fit is in line with my summer Dianese New Drake Air pants, so no surprises there.
- Not as much available ventilation as I'd like. I know, they're not summer pants like my New Drake Airs, but given their versatility I'd love if there'd been one more set of zippered vents. A pretty minor complaint.
- The liners have two attachment loops/snaps down at the bottom, but there are no indicators of front/back or left/right on the liner bottom itself, so it's pretty easy to put the leg liner in with a twist. After a couple dark and groggy mornings of putting one leg in wrong, I put a single fabric-safe paint dot on one attachment loop and one on the corresponding snap strap. If they'd made one set of the straps and snap loops with different-colored fabric that wouldn't be necessary.
- The hip armor is a tiny thin bit of foam inside the pants that you can't get to. Almost no pants in this class seem to offer real hip armor (or access), but it's no excuse.
- No tailbone padding or armor at all. Again, I know it's not a common thing, but still.
I don't use the suspenders, so can't speak to those, and I've not (yet) crashed in them so can't speak to their protection. I like the pants a tiny bit more than the matching jacket, and that's saying something because I *really* like the jacket. Good value for the money.

Very nice styling
As you would guess for Dianese: these pants look really good. They are a heavier, bulky pant for cold weather as they state. Even though they are bulky they fit snug. So if you have to wear something like a snow pant: they fit tighter and don't appear to be too bulky. I have only had the chance to wear them with temperatures down to 45 degrees and no sun. The were very warm and I only wear motorcycle undershorts with them. I would imagine if i was going to be riding in temperatures in the 30's; that i would wear long johns under them.

excellent protection, true to size.
I'm 6'2", 185 lbs. I bought both the jacket and pants in size 52. They fit well although I wore ankle-high boots, and the pants rode up exposing a little bit of leg to the wind. No biggie, with full-size boots I'm sure they will be fine. I rode for 2 hours in 33 degree (F) with no windscreen in perfect comfort. I didn't need any extra covering for my neck. Jacket cut placed the neck opening squarely under the wind shadow of my helmet. Great gear, if a bit pricey, and if I were a heavier guy...over 220 say, I might find it snug.
