They are soft and comfortable from the first wearing. Warm but not too hot. The only minor, very minor complaint is that they fit high in the waist which may be because I am relatively short at 5'4''. The length is easily customized, pockets are in a good place.
I have never purchased chaps before but these are very nice and priced right. Only thing is they run a little small. I bought a large and they fit pretty good and I think the xl would have too big! I am little on the curvy side. SO I am going to have to get a little smaller which is ok! Ready to ride!
