Fly Women's Butane Pants
They are great in cold weather. You can ride for hours and not get cold. They are easy to put on and take off.

They weren't playing around when they made these pants! They are heavy duty. When I first opened the box, it smelled like a tire store. That heavy rubber smell. The pants are a great material. Zip all the way up the thigh, with a velcro closure over the zipper. Velcro at the bottom to tighten around the ankle. Great velcro straps at the waist to sinch up.
I am 5'3" and a thick build. I'm a true women's 16 and the 15-16 fits me very well. It fits over my jeans with little effort. I can put the pants on and take them off with my boots on as well. I live in the south, so I removed the liner for now. It's been a low of 57 here in the mornings. I ride interstate, 45 mins at 70 mph so before the pants my legs were quite cold. I got caught in a rain storm yesterday and stayed completely dry.
It does feel like a snow pant like others have said, but they work very well in the cooler weather. Not sure if I could stand a summer in them though. If you are looking for a great over pant that functions well, these are for you. If you are looking to make a fashion statement, maybe not so much.
My only negative is that they are too long for me. I wish they had offered a "short" size. It's not so much the pants fault that i am vertically challenged.

good bang for the buck
Pros: good protection, fair price, good durability, good weather resistance.
Cons, could be more adjustable on waist, it cruelly lacks air flow. Fit is more of a ski pants (but who cares...)

Pros: Warm, durable, lots of pockets, great bang for the buck, large zipperways.
Unknowns for me: Cannot attest to the waterproofing ability yet. Cannot attest to the air flow in the heat as of yet.
Cons: Wish they had this in a smaller size. Thick (they look like snow pants on me, I get ragged on for it, but being safe is definitely worth it IMO).
Over all, probably most protection you can get at this price range. Great starter gear. =)

thease will keep you warm
I have never had riding pants so I wasn't sure what to expect, they are thicker than what I expected , and very easily slips over your jeans. I am sure they will work in most weather condition's that is ridable anyhow. I have not worn them enough to comment on overall quality but they seem well made. They remind me of snow pants a little bit perhaps has they age they will loose a bit of there puffiness overall I am pleased, however they are not form fitting so if your looking for fashion these are not a good choice but if your looking for functional I would rate these up there with more expensive pair I have looked at.

I got these for winter riding and with both layers, I can wear them over jeans or whatever pants I've got on and I am never cold even in the mountains after dark. I've worn them in 20 degree (F) weather and I'm comfortable and I also tend to be cold all the time anyway. The outer layer is waterproof and I've ridden in heavy rain for hours and didn't get wet. The outer layer alone works great for rain pants and they're easy to get on in a hurry. This is my second pair since I've lost weight and the old ones were absolutely huge on me. They do run 1 size large, but are very adjustable so I like that.

I bought these to bike in MN and I have been kept very warm. As you know, it gets pretty cold here in the am during my commute to work, but these pants are awesome. They are a bit bulky, but I would rather have that than freeze! :)
