Tour Master Flex Pants
Great until it rains
I like these pants, they're fairly easy to get off and on over my street pants, they're comfortable enough, and they keep me warm in cool weather even without the inner liner. However, after a five minute ride in the rain, I ended up with a wet crotch. At work. Disappointing. The rest of my pants were dry, and fortunately I was wearing dark jeans. I ride a naked bike, so maybe if you've got a faired bike you'll be ok.

very functional! Cold weather and wet.
These pants have allowed me to ride in the cold winter months comfortably warm.

Great for Dual Sport Riding!
I got these a couple weeks ago and have used them about 5 or so times. I had to take out the thermal / waterproof liners, as they were way too hot for riding in the mid 50's. The liners should be plenty warm for cold winter riding. With all the liners in, they would not really work well as overpants for me, so keep that in mind when sizing (perhaps go a size up), but with the two inner liners out, they work great as overpants.
The protection also seems great. The knee pads sat way too low when I first got them, but after 10 minutes of figuring how to adjust them, I was able to get them to a correct height. I still wish they could go a little higher though. Cant even feel the hip armor when riding, but its good quality, reasonably thick EVA foam, which would provide good cushion in the event of a fall.
Comfort is also great, they allow for plenty of movement, and don't impede me whatsoever getting onto my very tall DR650.
All in all, these seem like great, durable pants that will be suitable for all year riding given the many liner and vent configurations that can be done with these pants.

Good Recreational Pants for the money
These pants are good for the money. They were a bit smaller than expected with the thermal liner in them. If you plan on using them in colder areas I would order a size larger. They do have nice features with the air vent system and pockets make them nice for the investment.

Not for looks/ baggy
I really wanted these pants to work out to match my two Flex jackets but these pants are way to baggy in my opinion they were designed to be over pants. The quality was excellent and the pants are versatile but like a multi function tool it does multiple jobs okay but no job perfect. Spend a little extra and buy two pants the to do the job right.

More than I expected
After 40+ years of riding motorcycles, these are my first protective motorcycle pants. I tried on three others before deciding to buy these. I expected two liners, waterproof and thermal, but I was very surprised to see how easy it was to zip off the outer shell to expose the mesh. Perfect for Houston. Once I figured out how to adjust the knee pads I'm good to go.
The pants are very comfortable. The zipper/snap combination i the front works well. The only complaint I have is that, while the length is good enough, I really wish they came in a TALL size with two extra inches on the legs. I am 6'6" with a 36" inseam.
I haven't worn them in the rain or cold yet but I can already tell they will be better that my old blue jeans/rain pant combo.
I'm really glad I bought them. I added an adventure bike to my garage and wanted the off road protection but I wore them on my Harley this past weekend and really appreciated the air flow and comfort.

Great Versatile Pants... But there's a catch
These are primarily my "go to" pants for riding and I commute 25 miles daily. They are comfortable and with the ability to switch out liners and remove panels I can essentially change my pants throughout even the most unexpected of weather days.
They are waterproof if you have the liner in but the pockets which are on the outside shell layer are not and anything in them will get soaked. I wish these were offered in some other colors than just black, but that's just a minor thing. I love the fact that I can start a ride early on a cool morning with just the shell and panels and by mid day zip the panels off the make the pants 90% mesh to allow amazing air flow throughout a sweltering hot/humid day.
Everything about these pants are great... well almost.
The seam on one of the Velcro adjustment waist strap broke. So I was a little upset about them breaking, not even having the pants for more than a few months. Needless, to say I borrowed a sewing machine and got some black thread and sewed it back on... good as new #maybe even better than new#.
But I wouldn't let the simple break in material hamper me buying another pair when these go out. Definitely, still on my list of great pants.

I am short and fat.
This was my only issue I should have gone a size up in size because the pants are a bit tight. I got a jacket to match same size and it was a perfect fit with my riding jacket and vest underneath!
