When I get new products in to review, more times than not, I find myself saying I want whatever it may be (helmets, pads, bikes, etc.). However, I’ve never sacked up and actually spent my own money on whatever it was, usually because there’s always more products coming down the review pipeline so why bother. That changed though with the Haskells, after weeks of wearing them, I realized I needed another pair, so I slapped down the debit card and ordered them up from the Kitsbow website.
Sure, they might not be the best option to wear when riding in southern California because they run a little warm and we rarely have any tree or cloud coverage. However, if you ride anywhere where it’s cool, or have plenty of cloud or tree coverage, then heat is something you won’t have to worry about. The Haskell’s are a riding pant that can go straight from the trail to the office, a “party,” hell even a wedding and no one is the wiser. Not to mention, these are some of the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn, rivaling only sweatpants. Even then, I prefer to wear the Haskells. My only regret is that I wish I would of bought a 3rd pair to finish out the collection.
The comfortable, tailored-fit riding pants do come at a cost— $185 to be exact. They might not be the most expensive riding pants on the market, they certainly aren’t the cheapest either. So, should you find yourself unhappy with the Haskells, they can be returned to Kitsbow thanks in part to their Lifecycle Guarantee. They’ll even cover shipping should you do so within 30 days.
