Garbage...I have 2 pairs...the older pair held up longer. I have a pair from 2 years ago, higher end model, rode them for one season, threads all went everywhere. The worst hole is in the crotch and it's fucking freezing.

I live and ride in CO and my DC pants are perfect for nearly every day I ride. I've got no issues of them breaking down and shredding either... I have both DC pants and a DC Servo jacket and love em both. Got them both off whiskey militia I think, maybe brociety but basically the same thing.

I haven't had them for long(just this season so far), but I use the 5k Banshee pants and they keep me perfectly dry. However, it's a little cold with just the pants on. I wear biking tights underneath and that helps a lot with warmth.

Of course, now that I made my satisfaction with the pants public, they tear. For some reason, there is a flap with a downward opening on the seat of the Banshee, and it tore out yesterday on a slope. Admittedly, it was a fast fall and on ice, but I think the damage should have been much less noticeable. It isn't severe though, so I'm sewing it up now and I will continue to wear them in the future.
