Totally would recommend these pants. I use these everytime I commute to and from work. If you plan to wear over your work clothes get one size above your normal pair. Im 5'9" with a pant size of 32 and I ordered the large and they are just a tad to large, but these pants have belt loops so its no big deal.
Easy to get in and out with full side zippers, you don't even have to take your shoes off to get them on or off.
I thought I wouldn't like the two cargo pockets, but they really aren't in the way and they are fairly good size to hold whatever you need.
The only slight issue that I have had with these is on my cruiser bike with forward controls, on an extremely windy day the wind tends to get under the back side of my left leg and it opens the zipper. Other than that they work great keeping all the road debris off your nice clean work clothes.
Plus they had adjustable knee pads that are also removable if you don't want them in, just an added safety feature.
Havent had to ride in any climatic weather yet, but from the quality of material I feel that they wont be waterproof, but if you get caught in a slight drizzle/rain they should be able to keep you somewhat dry.
