Alpinestars Express Drystar Overpants 3.9 5 12 12
Decent When I first put them on, they seemed to be wayyyy too long. However, with boots on they do not drag at all. Also, when you mount your bike they suddenly become very comfortable. The knee pads slide down to the shin when unmounted. I would not wear these for long after getting off my bike. They feel somewhat like light duty snowpants with the liner in. The outer textile seems very strong. The lack of an adjustable knee is my only complaint with these. I ordered a size medium; I am 5'10" 165 31x31. I would likely fit better in a small, but the medium fits perfectly fine due to the adjustable waist. Per another site, I believe the small and medium are actually the same inseam length at 33.5 or so. I purchased these for cool/cold weather use and they are very warm. I will probably never use them without the liner, which is fine because I would probably want the small if using them without the liner. September 29, 2015
Maybe a bit too oversized? Perspective: By most accounts, I fall under the "average" title. I'm 5ft 10in (178cm), weigh about 150 lbs (68 kgs), and am of average build (neither too flabby nor too athletic). If anything, I might seem "skinny" by north american standards. Sizing: The medium size for this product tends to run a little long in length and a little loose around the waist. With boots on the back of the pant drags ever so slightly as I walk. If the silly thing came with belt loops I'd just cinch them up a little more but in lieu of the sensible option they have ineffective elasticized adjustment bands that do little to keep things up. Protection: Haven't crash-tested the gear (yet?) but it all feels solid. As others have commented, the armour hits mid shin while walking but this corrects itself when perched on the bike. (just be sure to keep your knees bent when you hit the ground, yea?) Features: Waterproofing feels solid. I can't yet comment on the all-season comfort but they don't get sweaty in 80°F (26°C) weather over a pair of shorts. July 25, 2015
Sizing Is Very Interesting On These Overpants... The AlpineStars Drystar Overpants have impressed my with their quality and features. They can be comfortable and keep me warm and dry on those cold mornings. I do have a major gripe with these pants though. I'm 6' 3", weigh 250 lbs, and typically wear a size 40 pant. However when I originally ordered the Drystar Overpants I ordered the XXL because they were the exact length I needed and the website said they should fit my waist no problem, fitment should be a little big due to the product being an OVERPANT!!! So when my XXL's arrived my excitement quickly turned to disappointment when I realized the XXL Overpants wouldn't even come close to fitting my waist. The pants were small to the point that I couldn't even zip them up or button them up, and this was without even trying to wear them over anything! So I exchanged the XXL's I ordered for XXXL Drystars. I can wear the XXXL's as Overpants however it's a tight fit at the very top of the pant. Also the XXXL length is long to the point that I have to roll the pant legs up a little so that they don't drag on the ground. So if your tall like me and where a size 40 pant beware what your getting into. May 11, 2015
In my opinion.. 5 Stars easily. I'm about 5'10 at 190lbs and ordered the XL as I planned on wearing them as over pants as intended.They fit well over jeans or sweats and I never think about the comfort as they never intrude on my riding. I use them to commute to work and also as my weekend riding pants. I couldn't be more happy with the results so far. I live in New Jersey so we get all kinds of weather, I wear them when it's cold, and/or when it's raining and never had a problem with water intrusion or with the cold. It was even snowing on my ride home and they worked flawlessly. overall I rate them 5 stars for the quality at the relatively low price. Your fellow rider Jeff. November 13, 2014
Great Construction, Slightly off fit These pants are leaps and bounds better than my old Joe Rocket ones. My old ones had the zippers bind on the flaps and eventually it destroyed them, so I bought these. The zippers are higher quality, the design is better and they zipping is very smooth. I'm a tall slender build, so the fit is a bit off. The knee armor seems to be just below my knee while walking. Once I'm sitting on the bike, everything seems to be in the right place. These can get pretty hot on a 70+ degree day, but are acceptable while moving. June 2, 2014
The pants fit me perfectly, really like the length when sitting on the bike. Comfort is great, they dont bunch up in the crotch after a long day. Great pants, wish they had a little more protection around hips for off road spills. March 13, 2014
the protection worked When I bought these, I tried them on in a store. I am 5'10"-5'11" and on the thin side at 165 lbs, 32 waist, 32 inseam. I had to buy a small, and yes, that included putting them on over my jeans. It feels as though the knee protectors hang too low when you are in a standing position, but when you are on your bike, in a riding position, the knee protectors feel like they cover your knees better, although maybe still a tad low. Last August, I was on a ride in the country when a baby deer jumped out of the grass on a two-lane highway, colliding with my front tire. Target-fixation and locking the front brakes caused me to low-side, sliding down the asphalt 60-80 feet. Amazingly, the pants protected my knees and skin without any road rash whatsoever. Unfortunately, the road did wear through the outer layer of the pants, chewing some large holes in them. As the guy in the store told me: leathers can be worn after an accident, but these textile pants are only good for one crash. He was right, but I was very happy with the protection. March 10, 2014
Needs to be better for the price Purchased these pants to replace old Kushitani over pants that they no longer produce. Quality of the press studs holding the removal lining is not good, already one fastening has come away. I'm 75 kg @ 186 cm and find even wearing these as over pants the size suggestion was a little large making the pants slip down as the waste band elastic adjusters are next to useless. Having said that the pants are warm in the current winter temperatures in Tokyo, about 2 degrees C and are waterproof in a heavy downpour for a 40 minute ride. One final point The knee protectors are too low and very uncomfortable so I had to remove them. January 14, 2014

A shopper asked: Will it zip up to the P1 Drystar jacket? Will it match that jacket in texture and color shade? Thank you. Oct 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The P1 Drystar jacket is an older model and may not zip with current Alpinestars pant models due to a change in zipper toothing. Any pair of current Alpinestars Drystar pants with the waist connection zipper comes with the "upper half" of the zipper to sew into your jacket if it does not match.

The P1 Drystar had a 500 Denier Cordura Texland Air Guard fabric construction. Sadly, Alpinestars does not have a current pant model with the same construction as the P1. The Express Drystar pants are made with a PU coated 450 Denier fabric so it will not be an exact material match but should still be close to the same shade of black. Please keep in mind that different materials and garments are typically dyed in batches so it is entirely possible that two garments even from the same product line could have some variation in the color.
