purchased off of one of those SAC sites. this review is for the asphalt color.

they were great when i was riding but i've sinced stopped riding and have picked up running. i wear them during the cold morning or wet runs. theyre pretty stretchy and don't look too bad. the only other running pants i could find are the spandex types... no thanks.

what you're paying for is the weight. it's light, as in it doesnt weigh much. i could see this as an advantage if youre using this on night runs or if you're packing for a camping trip and weight is critical. but it's not waterproof nor is the light output the greatest at this pricepoint. even at SAC prices, there are better options out there if you are not a weight weeny.i was using this as a headlamp while biking. but had to remove it from my helmet every time it rained. i ended up replacing it with a Tikka 2 Plus. the tikka has more features and is waterproof.BTW. the description says that it has 3 brightness settings. mine only has 2; bright and brighter. are they counting OFF as a brightness setting? or does the updated version have 3 settings?

-- update --

ok, there is indeed a 3rd setting as pointed out by a helpful user. but my 3 star rating still stands.

this is an awesome jacket that is totally waterproof. i've only had it for a few days and i cant wait to use it more often. it's totally breathable so no more sweaty build up after working out at the gym.

the only complaint is that the main zipper is a little difficult to zip up. but it's not impossible.

originally i ordered a small thinking that it would fit well on my 5'4", 135lb, frame. I wear a 38" chest size, but it was a little too snug around the chest and shoulders. it's no where near the 41" thats specified on the size chart. it's not impossible to wear while riding though. it felt nice when hunched over the handlebars, but i wanted something that i could feel comfortable in while layering so I decided to size up to a medium. that did the trick. the medium is an excellent fit for me. the arm length difference between the S and M is negligible, but the little extra girth in the chest/shoulder area made a world of difference in comfort. so size up!

I've owned these for little over 2 months, using them pretty much everyday as commuter gloves, and they're already showing wear at the fingertips. The synthetic suede has already rubbed off at the very tip of the fingertips. The silicone grips at the index and middle fingertips have already rubbed off.

I don't expect these gloves to last another couple months.Other than that, they look and feel awesome, but could be made better for the price.

-- update 03/27/2010 --

the synthetic suede (Chamude) has completely rubbed off my right index finger and thumb. both rear derailleur trigger shifter fingers have been rubbed bare to the cloth. Sombrio should have chosen better material. the synthetic cloth is terrible as a daily commuter glove, but i can see these gloves lasting longer if youre a weekend warrior using these gloves on the occassional sunday single track.

ive had these gloves for 2 weeks now and i love them. so far i've worn them casually, while running, and while biking in the rain. the weather proofing has withstood a light drizzle in los angeles, and 40 degree weather in norcal. they are also thin enough to be unobtrusive while bicycling in the rain.

these glove do run a little larger than usual for Dakine gloves. In other words, they probably run true to size.
