Scorpion Seattle WP Pants
Great when used for its purpose
I bought these for the winter season as they had the full thermal liner. Another philosophy of use was for rainy days. Overall, it is great for those two purposes.
It is starting to get warmer now during the summer and I have already found a replacement, as these pants just get too hot.
The knee armor doesnt feel like it is actually going to do anything, but it was a good thought. The hip padding really just adds bulk as well.
Overall, I think that if you use this product for its intended purpose and not as a general riding pant, then these are absolutely great!

So far these pants are great, love the removable liner for colder morning rides to work. I'm guessing they will be a bit warm for summer riding with jeans on, but hey they are overpants rock some shorts underneath instead. Fit and finish are excellent, highly recommend.

Not sure why but the waste feel like it is a little low. Also, It's a little long for me. I'm 5'5" and the bottom of the pants definetely extend past the possible hemmable sections. I roll it in and it stays put quite well. Also the knee pads sit around my shin but when I'm on the bike it closes around my knee. sort of.

When they say waterproof they mean waterproof!
I have only worn the pants once so far, but I got into some road grime. When I got home I decided to hose myself off before tracking it into my garage. Not a drop of water got through after a thorough drenching. I am a newbie rider but these pants are comfortable to wear, look good, fit and finish is excellent. I especially like the pocket designs and locations. Zippers are very high quality, I look forward to having these pants for many years to come.

Does not rain much where I am from but it gets both hot and cold. Have worn these with temps in the low 20's and been warm (no fairings) but take the liner out, up zip the side vents and worn in temps of 85-90. Great product so far. Thanks....

Great pants, mostly
As others have said, the pants are cut a bit lower than I'd like, especially in a pair of overpants. The back feels like they're constantly showing more than I want. Also, for guys with shorter legs like me, the knee armor doesn't quite as far up as I'd like in most positions, but luckily in the riding position, the armor sits perfectly. Other than that, they are comfortable, warm, and fit well over jeans. I have "athletic" legs, meaning large thighs so finding pants that fit comfortably and not extremely baggy is tough, but these fit the bill nicely, even with the liner in. The length is cut nicely, and the ability to hem is a plus! Overall a great pair, since nothing is perfect!

Well made, with one big issue.
At first I really, really hated these pants. I still kind of do, but I've learned to adapt somewhat. First, they look great. The #1 design goal with these pants appears to have been to make a good-looking pant/over pant. And they do look good...until you bend over and your -crack hangs out. When I wear these I feel like I'm in my buddy's low-waisted little hipster pants riding a vespa to the cafe. I'm used to riding pants that actually come up over your waist and don't expose your trmp-stamp to the cold wind and rain. Build-wise, they have a really solid, quality feel. The zippers are great, the thermal liner is nicely done, the dual travel zipper is really handy, the sealed, and the fold over pockets are waterproof and functional. Overall I think they're actually decent pants, but you have to be aware of how low the waist is cut.

Good waterproof pants
I bought these for their waterproofing and being an overpant. They work pretty well, I took out the liner as I wear blue jeans under and having 3 layers was rather uncomfortable when I had to move around off the bike.
The side zippers help, I can put my boots on first if I want.
I only have two minor complaints about it: the closer above the zipper, I wish it was something more than two snap buttons, and the knee armor sits below my knees rather than over them. That might not be a problem for most people, I'm 36" waist with a 31" inseam which tends to be shorter than most peoples.
Zippers work well, love the waterproof pockets. Worked very well in the rain I got caught in. Fits well over other pants, but also well enough I would consider wearing just them.
