Got them out this morning 33 degrees with a good wind blowing... Perfect weather to test these bad boys out... Right off the bat these are extremely comfortable ( I got 1 size larger for baggier feel) and the fit was great with a pair of Gore Thermo+ Bibs. I was out on a nippy breezy day and they are 100% windproof and very water resistant... I drop into a creek and water repelled without issue. and the wet part dried extremely quick... Needless to say they are worth the money! So much I got me the 3/4 pants as well. I really recommend getting these for winter mountain bike riding...

Well? I finally received them and I couldn't wait to try them on... I have pretty thick muscular legs, so I opted for the XL, I may have gotten away with a Large as they seem roomier than that ALP-X 2.0 pants. but the fit is extremely comfortable and they are not falling off me... I figured if they feel a bit loose, I can get them taken in. The feel is soft extremely comfy and really can't beat 2 in one with the zip-offs... it is a rainy day today and was able to test them right away... they are NOT waterproof but extremely water resistant. I personally really like the attention to detail on the velcro and even velcro on the button... I had returned a pair of Enduras because the button wouldn't stay clipped.
Overall I am already a fan of Gore Bike Wear and I know that I'll have these pants for many years to come... Bring it on Winter!!!!

Lastly,
I would like to thank Clay D. who what the chat rep who helped me get this in time for the weekend. His service and patience was SUPERB!!! needless to say reps like him is what makes real cyclist the place for me to shop online for my bike needs.

I just received my ALP-X 2.0 SO pants. My initial thoughts are that they look very well made, extremely soft and good looking for the trails in cold weather. They fit to the body but extremely comfortable at the same time. I will update my review once I put them to the test on sub 30 degree weather. (Soon!)
******************UPDATE*******************************
The pants are true to their statement, but as an athletic person with thick legs, I felt I needed more room. they are form fitting which is exactly what the ad says. Unfortunately I didn't get to put them trhough the test as I returned them and I am now waiting for the FUSION SO one size larger in order to feel more loose while also wearing the bibs underneath... I will post on the Fusion SO pants once received.

1st of all they do run 1 size too small, so be sure to buy a size bigger; I had to return the 1st pair due to size.... Once I got the right size, I realized how great 3/4 pants are for trail riding... I definitely like that I can take off the lining and use them while hitting the tavern for a victory beer... :)

On a less promising not the front clip button doesn't seem to stay locked in and does unbutton from time to time...
This has not hinder the shorts although I wish it would stay buttoned.
