Great pants after all...

Found out about pants' leg bands; in particular, a product by Deuter that is a bit wider than most other straps I've seen, so it holds the pant leg more securely. It also has a 3-M Scotch Lite reflective strip and secure velcro closure.
Gore seems to run on the small side (aside from the REALLY baggy legs of these), recommend order one size up & get the Deuter leg band (the one I got retails at $11.00, look for that one); your local bike shop will probably have to special order it from their catalog, as did my favorite shop; or go directly to the Deuter safe...good-to-go!

Thank you for the suggestion. DO you know what is funny about these pants ? that I got caugnt in my bycicle chain one day when I was riding in my Gore pants...(after six months of using them) I called Gore and they gave me one website where they repair Gore products. They sent me to Amazon to buy the repair kit, is available as ( McNett Gore-Tex Fabric Repair Kit ). I have not done the repair yet but I will sure let you know if this works or not. It has good reviews at least. Hope you don't get caught with your leg band that you are recommending. I will try to get one for sure.
