Fieldsheer Mercury 2.0 Pants
Would purchase again
Great pants, lots of bang for the buck. These will keep you warm in nearly freezing temps with the thermal liner. Without the liner I can use these as overpants or wear alone. I've only experienced brief showers but stayed dry. Completely wind proof. Easy on/off. Can't wear these above 70 degrees. The only reason I rated comfort as average is because the knee pads are somewhat tight against my knees when on the bike.

Great features for the money
I'm very impressed with the quality and fit of the pants. I have yet to test the pants in the elements, but the features and quality of the pants for the money is amazing. Once again I'm very impressed with the timely shipping and quality of Revzilla products.

I haven't worn these yet, we have snow on the roads. They fit good and have all the features I was looking for at an untouchable price. The hip protection seems to be sliding around a lot, I tried them on and the pads sat in different spots on each side. Need to spend some time with these pants and I'm eager to do so. My first pair of dedicated riding pants.

Excellent winter overpants
I've been using these over my work slacks without the liner in temps down to 45 deg (30 min at 30-50 mph) without getting cold. I bought a large and the fit is good. I'm 5'8 185 and usually wear a 34 or 36. The padding at the hips is not too bulky. The knee pads are adjustable and fit where they are supposed to. The full length zipper is great and makes them very easy to put on without removing my boots. The liner also has full length one-way zippers but I haven't tried to put them on with the liner in. They were exactly what I was looking for and have performed as I expected.

Very impressed so far. Know more when the snow goes.
Used the sizing guide to select the size and bought XL even though I wear a 36 in jeans and don't own any other XL garment. The guide was correct & they fit great. The liner seamed very warm & comfortable. I have not ridden with them and wont be able to until the snow leaves the great white north.

First impression: Love them
I returned a pair of Icon Device Textile Pants because they felt too big, baggy, and there was no way to cinch up the pants at the ankles. For just a few $ more, these Mercury 2.0 pants are so much better!
I wear a 32 waist 30 inseam jean. I almost went with the "Medium Short" version on this pant due to the length problem I had with the Icon. I am glad I didn't, and went for the Medium Regular. First off, I don't plan on wearing these pants with the liner anytime soon, so I took it out. It comes out very easy. Just a zipper at the waist and 1 button snap at the cuff of each leg. These pants fit great, not baggy, no crotch sag, a tapered look and feel on the legs (even over jeans) and you can cinch up the cuffs with velcro closure. Some photos make the stitching look light gray or almost white. They are not, it is a very dark gray/almost black and subdued. The waist comes up just over 1" on the waist of my jeans (all the way around) to almost over my navel. Plenty of waist room when the waist tabs are fully loosed (1"+) over my jeans and belt, probably because the waist of the Mercury comes up higher and is not positioned over your inner pants waist. Standing, there is about a 1"+ bunch of material where the cuff of the pants meets the foot portion of my boots. Sitting on the KLR, the knee pads come up and almost "lock" in place over the knees where they are supposed to be. That 1" bunch of material extends out but still touches the base/foot of my boots perfectly. Even straddling the bike on a stop, the legs of the pants extend to the foot of my boots. The material on the seat of the pants is also textured slightly different to give you some stick on the seat. The zippers on the legs are big and beefy. Overall the shell looks and feels tough, quality appears excellent and I think they will hold up great.

Great fit but a bit short in the leg
"I was looking for a pair of cold weather pants - well, cold for Southern California. I ride 120 miles/day for my work commute and during the winter months, when it is dark in the mornings, the temperatures can dip into the low 40's. The Mercury 2.0 pants are warm, but also provide enough room if I need to wear a pair of thermal tights under these armored pants. The fit is great at the waist but I wish the pant leg was just a tad longer to fully cover my ankles while seated on my bike. Likely would not be a problem on a relaxed seated position (cruiser), but my bike (Bonneville) requires more knee flexion. Overall great bang for the buck. And Revzilla rocks - ordered these pants on a Saturday...arrived on Tuesday without any shipping upgrade (it was free shipping)...and the Review by Revzilla was spot on. Thanks."
