I purchased these pants on the recommendation of several people who had nothing but good things to say about Bauer products. I have had nothing but problems with these pants since I received them. The leg zippers broke the very first time I used them. Since the zippers were broken, my skates tore holes in the back of the legs every time I put the pants on. The velcro covering the zippers would snag my socks, and the material on the inner thighs has become shredded. Very poor quality from such a highly esteemed company!
