REV'IT! Glacier Pants
Very nice base layer
I bought these as a thermal layer for some expected cold riding in the Sierras. Was going from 60 degree mountain areas with shade, all the way down to 90 degree temps in death valley by evening. I had vented pants on, so i thought I'd be changing these as I reached warmer, lower elevations, but they breathe very well. All this while keeping my legs pretty warm too.
Overall, I'd say these are a perfect mid weight pant that covers a wide range of temps. Not a hot summer, nor a sub zero pant, but good for 40-85 degrees. Could obviously use in much lower temps if you pants are warm and block the wind.
Fit and finish was excellent; and very comfortable for riding.

These things fit perfectly and are extremely comfortable
I just moved to Colorado and needed a nice warm base layer. After trying several different base layers that just didn't fit or weren't warm enough I found these. They are awesome and a good price to boot.

Very comfortable , have worn them in 34 degree weather with long cotton underware and light pants with no chaps for wind break and was just right. I would need to use my leathers if temp droped any lower but was great down to 34. Very well made and would recommend these. I live in northern Arizona where temps during the day can be 65 and before I get home in the low 30's, no overheating or sweating or feel like I need to get them off when I stop and am in the warm sun. I am 6' 3 and weare a 38 waist pant and the xl is just right.

Pretty good base layer
I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm not blown away like I've been by all my other Rev'It purchases but I'm definitely not regretting it.
The cost is a bit higher than I think the pants are worth. There aren't really any features that set it apart from, say, a North Face style expedition/compression base layer which can be found on sale for a bit less.
They've done their job and kept my legs from going numb as low as 25 (F) at both slower and highway speeds. I think the sweet spot for these is right around 40 (F) where you can't feel the cold at all. At 25 (F), I definitely felt the chill but nothing nearly as bad as it was before wearing a base layer.
I'd recommend these for anyone who just doesn't feel like going to a store nearby to find something cheaper.

Great Base Layer
I have worn these through sub 40 cold mornings and nights both Interstate and Backroads over this past week. Fit great and kept my legs from freezing under my joe rocket kevlar jeans. I thought they would be warmer, as my thighs got cold but not numb. I have only had them a week so cannot comment on durability. Ordered them via the phone, and revzilla was great in delivery and I do think there were worth the higher price Revit has.

This is a solid product. It fits well, keeps you warm without the bulk. I did not drate durability because I have not owned it long enough but it feels well made so I expect it will last.
