What the blurb doesn't mention:
- popper buttons on the inside of the leg hem
Reflective bead on the inside of the leg cuff visible when you roll the leg up out of the chain way
zipped rear pockets, and a zipped front valuables pocket
slight padded triangle inside
Rubber gripper strip inside the belt line to grip to shirts
I picked up a pair of the grey ones for work at the weekend and have so far worn them for today. Short term review is that they seem to work really well. The gripper belt line does help stop the trousers giving you builders crack and stops your shirt from popping out when riding as well, the poppers on the hems do a really good job of keeping the trouser leg out of my chain (though I'm not sure why if you can use them you would then roll the trouser leg up and get use from the reflective strip. I blame hipsters.) Other than not feeling the seam when riding I cant see much benefit from the padded triangle, fit is good, colour is decent - the grey is darker in real life than you can see on the website - though it would be better if they did black or navy as well, and the price at the moment (£32) is so much less than you would pay from cycling brands its ridiculous.
I've not had chance to test the water resistant claims made, but I'm sure the UK weather will oblige soon enough.
