Functionality doesn't mean looking dorky.
We get it; you just want a simple, waterproof set of pants that don't make you look like a goon. With the Ride Madrona pant, your goon-status will be non-existent. The regular fit means you won't look like an extra from a '97 rap video, but they're not so slim that it looks like you picked them up in the women's aisle either. In fact, many would claim that the jeans-inspired fit strikes the perfect balance between the two.
Beyond aesthetics, the 10k/5k waterproof/breathable rating means that you'll stay dry from dumping snow to spring slush, and the mesh lined inner thigh vents let you blow off some steam when you start heating up. They feature Ride's ACT1 insulation, which means they have light insulation in the knees and backside, but they're still light enough to be comfortable on spring days. These are pants you'll be glad to wear, from the season's first chair to the last sun-soaked lap.

They look good and fit well. Skimped a little on the quality.
