Waterproof, durable, fits perfectly.
Great, comfortable and durable riding pants.
They work on the dirt or street in wet weather. The fitment guide is true to form as well.
Well made and feels pretty bullet proof, sizing is sort on 38” waist in trousers and the 38” Rak pants fit over them fine and are plenty long enough (34” leg) which is a real plus for me. Love the full length side zips too, on and off is a doddle.
I rode in a pair of Aerostich AD1 pants for years before switching the the Rak pant. What I like about the Rak pants:
- Much better / bigger fly gusset (major complaint with the AD1).
- Roomier. Easier to get my leg over the bike.
- Packs smaller.
- Colors other than black.
What I liked better about the AD1:
- Better Velcro closure design at the bottom of the legs.
The Rak pant just doesn’t get as tight to the leg as the AD1 because it doesn’t have as much Velcro area and when you do it folds over the zipper which bows the bottom of the pant leg out. Gives the snow pants look which is less than awesome, but I can live with that since the other features beat out my former pants. Nobody wants a wet crotch.
Hey Ryan, We're glad you are enjoying your Rak Pants! Our main goal with these was to prevent a soggy butt, and in doing so solved the wet crotch problem!
