Jesse S.wrote a review of Gore Bike Wear One Gore Windstopper Pant - Men's on January 24, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These pants have made winter cycling a much more enjoyable affair up in the northeast. This is my second winter with these pants and they have exceeded my expectations in most categories. They are super warm and definitely stop the cold wind. I generally wear them over my bib shorts down to 20 degrees. Lower than 20 requires some tights as a base layer, but these also breathe well up to 45 degrees so they are an excellent winter tool.
These are pants and not tights, so they do fit a little baggy. I am 5’9 175lb with a more muscular build and a medium fits snug around the quads but normal at the waste with enough space to go over my 45NRTH boots at the ankles.
They are definitely NOT waterproof from rain, but they are waterproof enough for snowy conditions. I have been caught out in 35 degree rain when it was suppose to snow and these were the weak link in terms of waterproofing. They are somewhat resistant for a few minutes, but will become saturated. That being said, the durability is fantastic and I’ve even done some winter races in these regardless of how “un-aero” the fit is. With probably 2000 miles in them they have some slight discoloration from saddle rub, but the seams are still strong. I highly recommend.
