Good basic rain pant

Reviewed by Pedal Pusher from NYC on Saturday, January 7, 2012
I got these for bike commuting in wet weather, and these have worked really well for that--definitely keeps the rain/grime off my lower body. They are nothing fancy--just your basic rain pant. But they fit well, both on their own as well as over regular pants, and look decent on (not too baggy). They seem well-constructed and sturdy so far. They are also very light and pretty breathable, and fold up very small, which makes them emminently packable. Easy to store in my commuter bag for changeable weather. They have 2 adjustable snaps at the cuffs, though I wish there were a couple more snaps to get them really fitted on the bottom. The only con is that these are a little long on me and a little wide at the bottom (I'm 5'4", 125lbs, got size S). Not a problem for walking in them with regular shoes/boots on but more of an issue when wearing them on my bike with clipless pedals, where extra fabric is not a plus. Keeping them on the tightest ankle adjustment helps but being able to make them a wee bit narrower would be ideal. Aside from that, these low-cost rain pants are better than I expected and I think these are a really good deal.
