Easy to put on, waterproof, as breathable as can be expected (the side mesh zips are very nice). I wish there was some built in belt or a way to make them tighter around the waist. Leg zips are fantastic, are are the reflective accentsvelcro around the ankles. I will bike 12 miles to work every day that there isn't icesnow on the road, and these are great to have. They are a bit bulky if you have to pack them, but I expect that's the price to pay for waterproof breatheable. I've only ridden them for 2 (very wet) months, so I can't speak to their long term effectiveness.
I use these once a week when its actually wet enough to merit in Seattle, and in the snow, BC skiing every weekend. Love the side vents, the reflective bits, the velcro straps.
Suspenders are a must tho, spent more on those. And the zippers get caught on the inside fabric often. Could use a couple more pockets too. The one is not quite enough.
