No excuses: time to ride in the rain!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Got these in order to no longer have an excuse not to commute in bad weather, and as luck would have it, we had a few downpours here in NYC after my purchase!

I wasn't really sure what size to get, as the measurements suggest that the only difference between an M and a L is the waist (same inseam). I erred on the bigger side, and in retrospect could probably wear a medium, but it's not a major issue.

Regardless, they held up perfectly in the few heavy rains we've had. The only thing I'd change with these pants is that I wish the "loop" part of the Velcro ankle straps were longer, in order to make them more secure when cinched up tight.

Great rain and wind gear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I've only worn them four times up here in western NY. Always in wind, twice in snow storms and yesterday in 40's and rain. In short, I love them! Totally comfortable in all the nasty conditions I ride in. Yesterday on a 40 mile ride, it started to rain and I smiled! Great piece of equipment. Worth every penny.
PS- get the suspenders

Bomb Proof

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is what you wear when it's nastier than nasty, but you've still got to ride. You will not find a more waterproof, windproof, nastyproof pant than this one.

There seems to be no amount of rain or wind that will penetrate this sturdy 3 layer construction. Good luck getting wet in these, you're staying warm and dry for the long haul. Along with the absolute shear brute, weather-stopping function, a lineup of functionality awaits. Reflective materials, zippers for easy in-and-outs and hook and loop straps for keeping the pants out of your drive train all over practical on bike function. There's also plenty of ventilation and fabric breath-ability, when your body temperature builds up an inner storm. These pants reminded not of cycling specific gear, but more of backcountry skiing gear from a brand like Arc'teryx. Function, function, function matched with quality construction and a sleek looking design. They're that good!
