The Shower Pass Club Visible Rain Pants are made from waterproof, yet breathable, Artex fabric with seam-taped construction and generous amounts of 3M Scotchlite reflective material. Features long zippers at the ankles for easy on and off over shoes and Velcro straps to cinch up your pant-leg to avoid a greasy chain. These pants also have exterior pockets for easy access to keys, phone, or other small items. Available in sizes S-XXL.

You’ll definitely be seen on the roads, and be dry when you get to where you’re going, with the Club Visible Rain Pants. I stayed completely dry and comfortable, even on very wet days, without overheating. While my commute is fairly short, given the performance I experienced, these should be able to keep you dry on longer journeys too.
While the visibility factor is a main selling point (they are called Club Visible after all), something a little more subtle would make me more likely to wear these in anything other than a serious downpour.
These pants made me feel invincible to the weather, but I also felt like a member of a construction crew on the road wearing such an intensely visible color. Definitely not for the “Cycle Chic” crowd.
