Dylan Wytherwrote a review of Element Howland Pant - Men's on July 21, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The fabric is very smooth and comfortable, although do to the nature of the material any sort of dust, animal hair, or fleece fuzzies will stick. The colour is very deep (I bought the black pair) and a year later is the same as when I got them.
These are true skater-style straight legged pants, and therefore are quite narrow. They aren't skin tight standing up, but when sitting down there will likely be no room in the thighs. If one is used to the style it shouldn't be bothersome.
