Wearing these pants in a major downpour has its advantages. Namely, the adjustable leg length. I was able to completely seal off the top of my high-top boots with this extra fabric (approx 4” (10 cm)), cinching it up tight with the three lower Velcro fasteners. The 2.5-layer fabric kept me bone dry without overheating, and no droplets at all found their way into my boots. As the extra length is snapped up inside the pants, you may catch your toes/ shoes inside while pulling them on.
The multiple logos and reflective chevrons give these pants a sporty, almost “moto-cross” look to them. Subtler reflective detailing would appeal to the more style-oriented rider. However, most throw that out the window when the rain pants must go on anyways. Function rules in nasty conditions.
These pants are superior performers. They are packable, keep you dry, and still allow for breathability on longer rides. The adjustable leg length is a real winner here and kept my entire lower body dry in some seriously stormy conditions. I would appreciate a less sporty design for the reflective details and five logos may be a bit much on a pair of pants. However, if your main goal is to both keep dry and be seen, these are a fine choice for stormy weather commuting.
