I've been a long-distance bicycle tourist for over 40 years, and have built my "gear stash" over that time. These pants mark the finish of my gear pursuit. I looked at them for years, was oh-so-interested in buying them, but simply could not justify the price. My rain jacket is an Arc Teryx Pac Lite (puprchased on-line and on sale), and it has functioned so wonderfully well, I was hoping a cycling-specific PacLite rain pant would complete the set.
Well, the came on sale and I (6'1", 185lb) picked-up a large. Oh, am I glad I did! I've worn them in full rainstorms, at 40f with a big wind and only shorts underneath, and put them on taken them off without removing my size 13 cycling shoes.
Simply the best. I hope I live to ride through many a rainy day with this wonderful gear.
