Winter Riding Pants.

I have 2 pairs of winter cycling tights that I bought on line.  They were posted as an Men’s XL but would probably fit someone who takes a Small or Medium.
The measurements are:  Waist 32-34, Leg length 40, Inseam 31
They have never been worn and still have the tags on them.  They have a riding chamois in the gusset. I am asking for $60 for each one or $100.00 for both. 
Located in the Victoria area.

I used this in my condo bike lockup for extra security for both my bikes.

This looks like fun.!
