Suey and I bought these pants a couple years back.  Sue really hasn't been riding with me much at all.  Maybe a dozen times with these pants.  Yesterday I took a ride with my youngest daughter Reilly.

It appears that the mesh was sown to the seam incorrectly and well that does not inspire confidence.  What would you do?  Burn them? Take them back with out reciept?  Buy a better pair and cut your losses?

*some* of their stuff is fine. Some is most definitely not.

FWIW, the BiLT Tornado jacket has been great for me, but holy crap, I don't even begin to feel like I could trust any of their pants; they're made of plastic tissue paper, it seems. (the men's waterproof stuff I was checking out)

I seem to recall the Sedici line had a lifetime warranty and the Bilt line had a 1yr warranty. Take it back. They have computers and can lookup your purchase history.

Agreed - take it back.  The worst they could say is no - then just leave them there anyway.   ;D

But if they replace them, just sell on eBay as new and use the $$ towards something better.

I've had a pair of those for about a decade. They take a beating.
