Showers Pass Roadie Pant

If you have you been looking  for a really good, breathable rain pant for the winter season, do I have a suggestion for you! The Showers Pass Roadie Pant just might be the answer. They are not cheap at $160, but well worth the money. This feature rich rain-pant uses the patented “Event” fabric which lets the sweat escape all the while keeping the rain out.  The thing that I noticed most on my commutes home – I don’t overheat! I especially like the snugger fit that most bulky rain-pants can’t match. The SP suspenders at $25 can easily be attached using Velcro strips at the waistband. The little “Gator” extension at the ankle deflect the water off of the top of cycling boots keeping your feet dry. I highly recommend the “SP Road Pant” and these beauties will give you many years of great service.
