        Overall

        Good, steezy pants.  Great for a second/third/extra pair when you wanna look good!

        Performance

        Pretty solid.  I was scared that 1) since it was oakley it would be poor quality and 2) the white would get gross.  Besides the ripping at the bottoms and cuts from my edges, there was no real damage, and besides a big ol' red railstain on my ass, there's not much staining either.  Just wash them and it comes out fine.

        Design

        They look sick (see fit)

        They feel great as well.  Oakley had a great idea when they came up with the pull tabs to tighten or loosen the waist; kind of like a cinch cord. 

        Value

        $120 new at the backcountry.com outlet!  Good deal!  I paid $60 for mine used on here, and that was probably a steal ;)

        Fit

        Perfect!  I'm 6'0 and a pretty wide build and I got XL.  They fit great, really baggy, espcially when you sag them and open the vents by the knees, letting air blow in and puff them up.  When you open the zippers at the ankles there is an extra layer of material so it looks like you have really wide, baggy pants around your boots.  Overall very steezy

        Durability

        Overall they didn't do too badly, as one might expect.  My edges cut up alot of the outer layer, but that was easy to sew and didn't go all the way through

        My one big qualm is that the little plastic waterproof pouch located in the left pocket wasn't great quality and ripped when I had change in it, spilling it into my pocket.  Good idea, poor execution.  Nothing a little masking tape can't fix...
