Cannondale Rainpants

Does anyone wear the "Cannondale Metro Pants"? Are they good, mediocre. or bad?

Thank you very much for your input (I wore out my REI rainpants and learned the wet way).

No experience with these pants, if they are anything like the C'Dale shorts and jerseys they should be well made and designed rain pants. I have switched to their shorts and jerseys exclusively (save my 50+ ls jersey) as they are comfortable and show no signs of wear or flaws in the construction.
