I wish I had waited for the upgraded 2013 pants. The build quality of my original Dubinky pants is great, but hip armor and knee pockets would be a welcome addition. Furthermore, the cuffs are a little too tight (even at the loosest end of adjustment)around my SG10 boots, causing the pants to pull down, resulting in a case of plumbers crack. For those with Smaller boots and or calves this is probably a non issue. Maybe I'll have a rubberized waist band sewn in to them... Hint. Other than that, great pants that are made in the USA. Good to see Cox has listened to rider feedback and revised them.
