These Detour 8505 Riding pants are made of a durable water resistant polynylon with stretch material in the groin and the backs of the knees, and heavy duty ballistic nylon in the knees, hips, and seat. They have a huge size range, including regular sizes XS thru 4X, and short and tall sizes m thru 3X. There is a fitment chart on the listing to help you to determine your size.

The fly closure features an all metal zipper with a waterproof gusset and a hook and loop cover flap with dual snaps at the top.

Safety comes in the form of removable CE rated armor in the knees, built in padding in the hips and lower back, removable foam padding in the hips, and reflective panels and piping that start above the outside of the knees and extend down to the bottom of the cuffs of the legs.

Storage is ample with two hand warmer pockets with waterproof zippers and hook and loop cover flaps.

Adjustability equals comfort, and these 8505's are definitely adjustable. They feature dual hook and loop straps at the waist with stretchy panels, accordion style stretch panels at the knees and rear end, and more hook and loop adjusters at the cuffs.

The leg closures feature ¾ length waterproof zippers that are tucked away beneath these hook and loop cover flaps. Open the legs up, and you can see the removable quilted liner with flex panels in the knees, and the fixed waterproof liner that guarantees you stay dry for the whole ride.

would these pants be good in warm/hot weather?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2015
Best Answer:You are definetly going to sweat in the hotter months even without the thermal layer in there. There isn't any ventilation so it gets pretty hot in there. I would try to leave the zipper on the legs open sometimes but it didn't do too much. Nice pants though for the price and for fall/ winter/ spring riding.

I am 5'11" about 175lbs medium built. Was considering medium. Will wear with liner inside most of the time. Is medium a good size?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer:I am 5' 8" and about 165 lbs. I got the large and they fit me perfectly in the waist when the waist adjustments are as tight as they can go, so I can adjust them bigger as I get fatter :). The length is a little long for me (I am short) but it isn't a problem they just bunch up a little above my ankles. I really like these pants. They are well made, comfortable and easy to get on and off. We drove the bike to Utah in October and rode in High 30's and low 40's and they kept me warm. I am sure I could ride in much colder weather with them, I just haven't yet. I highly recommend these pants. I would suggest a large for you, just my opinion. After I ordered them I thought I should have ordered a medium and just new I would have to send the large back and get a medium, but when they arrived the large was perfect. I have never worn them without the insulated liner as I bought them for cold weather riding. I hope this helps.
