like a windshirt? on 04/28/2010 08:20:32 MDT Print View

Are these basically like a "wind shirt" but in pants form?

I like mine quite a lot. They're fairly rain resistant as well, at least as far as passing storms go, but I probably wouldn't rely on them for sustained protection.

The zippered ankles have actually proved to be fairly useful for me, although some people might find them superfluous. What I am considering cutting off are the little velcro ankle tabs, which I never seem to bother fastening.

For those who may have these how is the fit? According to the Montane chart I would fall between medium and large.

BTW - the jacket looks to also be on sale.

I have an older pair. My size by their chart was medium. I had to get a large and it is form fitting. They are snug fitting since it's biking clothing.

I ordered my pair today as well. I would have been a Large, but they only had Med and XL left, so I went XL.

I used to have the Aero anorak in L, and it was a little snug, so I had no problem going with the XL today.

My FL "L" are 41" long and about 28" at the waist relaxed, 36" stretched.
They are a few years old, so not sure if that still is the same.

I wear a medium in most pants, though I tend to be on the skinny side. The medium F-lites are perfect. Trim, but enough room to layer a trim pair of softshell pants underneath.

David - I was leaning towards a size large (no longer available on BC). I usually wear 32 waist/32 length (regular pants). Thinking if and when layering - I might need a large plus there is velcro to make tighter around the lower leg if need be. Does my estimation sound accurate based on what you know about the Featherlites or am I still in the medium range ?

Lee, I reckon you could go either way, depending on how trim you want the F-lites to be. I also wear a 32/32 in most pants.
