REV'IT! Horizon Pants Companion to the Horizon jacket, the Horizon trousers offer 100 waterproofing. Their outer shell is basically allergic to water, repelling its pickup (assuming that you occasionally clean the shell). REV'IT! considers the REVIT Horizon trousers to be the number one choice for daily commuters and serious touring enthusiasts. Without the removable thermoliner in place, it's the most durably waterproof, abrasion-resistant, and multi-functional over-pants you will find. The fit is casual enough to wear over jeans. Airflow comes directly through the side pockets, which also give you straight access to your jeans pockets - in case you need some change for the toll.

I purchased these pants for riding from late fall straight through winter to early spring. I also wanted a pant that would shed water on the outside (i.e. NOT by using a liner which allows pants to get cold and waterlogged on the outside). This pant fits the bill. It is very high quality, water and wind proof on the outside. The trade off is no venting. Anything over 75 deg F and you'll be sweating. So a great dedicated 1-2 season pant, but for a 4 season pant you'll need to look elsewhere. Also, if you are purchasing these mail order know that they fit very very small. Thankfully I purchased these at the Philadelphia store so I could try the different sizes on. I am 6 ft tall, 200 lbs with a 32" inseam. Normally I wear an L or XL in "US sized" riding pants. In this "Euro sized" REVIT! pant, the 3XL fit me best either as an over pant, or as regular pant with the thermal liner. And yes I said 3XL, this is not a typo! 2XL was too small and pulled tight in the thigh area once I sat on the bike with my knees bent in riding position (adventure bike position, not sport bike). Length on the 3XL was just about right for my inseam if not a little short. Sizing quirks aside, don't overlook this pant. It's a great choice if you are looking for a dedicated cold and wet weather pant.
Yes, I recommend this product.
