More like tight overpants.
I was looking for a decent pair of moto pants that could pass as office acceptable. I've yet to try these at the office, 'cause they look good, and they have a heavy dockers type feel to the fabric, and from the knees up they could probably pass. However, they have zippers from about mid calf down, and i'm not sure why. They're boot cut, and way too tight to wear as overpants...so you won't be pulling them on over anything. When I'm walking around they sound like snowboard pants, and on the inside they're kind of meshy and lined like snowpants. Actually...no, my snow pants have fleece. I'm not really sure whats going on with these pants....
For all the weirdness, they're pretty comfortable. Fit's kinda tight, I usually wear 34's, I ordered these in a 36 and they feel fitted. A little tailored in the upper legs, kinda shallow in the crotch, I'm 6'3", and I feel like I'm showing a little crack in the seated position. I don't have armor in them, but it feels like it'll sit in the right spot with some D30.
In short, they ride okay, little air flow, don't look bad except for the weird overboot ankle zippers, and sound like snow pants. I'll keep 'em, don't know if I can get away with em at the office, and worst case scenario, they'll serve me well at big bear this winter.

better than denim jeans, but not better than true motorcycle pants
These pants fit a niche between wearing denim jeans and true motorcycle pants. My jean size is 33 x 34 and I purchased a 34 pant. The legs were the right length, but the knee placement was a little high. The Urban DNS pant is contoured in the seat and knees. Very comfortable for riding. The water resistant liner will be stickier than jeans when the weather is hot and humid. The outer cloth fabric is nice, but hand wash only. No pads. Great for commuting or urban riding. Look nice without looking silly. What's silly? Wearing a leather track suit at the theater. The Urban DNS pants wouldn't be out of place in a nice restaurant.

These pants were slimmer then I thought they were going to be. So they are pretty stylish. But not really meant as an overpant unless you buy larger. Since its not high end waterproof the breathing and venting of sweat is not so great if your going in and out of buildings if your commuting and wearing these all day. Have worn these in 50 degree rain and was warm and dry. Pockets don't seal other then the back pockets so front pockets do get damp. Its also a bit snug in the crotch and thighs. And I don't have muscular legs so it could be an issue to others. The pants do flare out slightly after the knees for boots and room for knee inserts. The material also feels like its made from a tougher material then snowboarding pants and reinforced in places for motorcycle riding.

A shopper asked:Is there any kind of abrasion resistance built into these pants? Such as the kevlar lining in some riding jeans, etc? Or are they just cotton twill with a waterproof lining and pockets for knee armor? Thanks!May 21, 2014
I would not wear these pants in 20F temperature weather on a motorcycle. The pants are not lined and they are not internally gathered at the bottom. The only way to wear these pants in 20F weather would be over a pair of thermal long underwear. A windscreen or fairing while riding a snowmobile might be sufficient.
I live in Minnesota and understand cold weather. Whatever your cold weather plans, ask a local for advice. They can provide tips on staying warm for a particular activity. Don't forget your fingers, toes, and head.Nov 18, 2013
Stefan R:These pants aren't insulated so they aren't intended for super cold weather. That said, they do have a mesh lining and they are fairly wind resistant. I've worn them in 30-40 degree weather with heavy thermals and was perfectly comfortable for my 30-mile commute.Nov 17, 2013
NSX J:I wouldn't do it. These pants are quite thin. They are waterproof which means they are more windproof than regular pants - but they are not insulated at all. You would need some serious thermal layers under these pants.Nov 18, 2013
