These are the best rain paints out there. I rode in the Trans Am bike race this year and encountered incredible thunder storms in Missouri and Kentucky and these pants worked great. they breath really good which has always been a problem with most other brands. The one thing I really like about them is that you can take them off without having to remove your shoes. Highly recommend.
I live in the Cascade foothills south east of Portland and we get a lot of rain.
These are fantastic rain pants. They breath very good and keep me dry for hours and they pack up pretty small.
They air dry extremely fast.
I'm 5'9 180lbs and the large fits me good, a little baggy might have been able to fit a medium but I like the extra room for pedaling hard.
I highly recommend these.
In prep for winter riding in Seattle, I tried all kinds of wet weather tights (showers pass, castelli, 4ucycling, arc'teryx). These gore bike wear pants are the winner for riding in medium amd heavy rain. 34 pants are a non starter (castelli tempesta), showers pass skyline are a weirdly snug and short fit.
I'm 5'10 175lbs with muscular thighs. I bought medium c3 gore pants. This fit was just right as an over layer that isn't too flappy.
Ive used these a number of times in moderate rain with good results. They kept me dry and breath reasonably well, as well as any rain gear Ive used. I purchased them to use on a bikepacking tourthey are light and pack fairly small, they fit in a jersey pocket easily. They cut the wind 100%. The fit is cycling friendlynot too baggie, but not race tight fit either. If you ride or commute in rain, these are a great option.
Love the ankle zippers as I was able to pull these on and off over my riding shoes.
I am 6 foot and 170-175size large fits well.
