Darien Pants

Product Review (submitted on July 27, 2012):
I bought my Darien pants in 2001 and have worn them for more than 80,000 miles in every weather imaginable. I had a low side crash in 2002 and scuffed the lower right leg - the Darien's didn't care until 2011 when they just started leaking. I brought them in to the store, and the only thing better than the pants was the customer service. I had a cup of coffee while one of the employees sewed on a patch complete with the Gore-tex(TM or circle R? Don't want you in trademark jail). No charge for the service! The technician warned that the membrane were starting to outlive the service life, and showed me the interior discoloration. Sure enough - now in 2012, after another 5,000 miles, the pants have started to seep when riding in the wet. Thanks, Darien, for 10 years of service. I'll be riding to Duluth to buy another pair soon.
