Alpinestars Express Drystar Overpants 4 5 9 9
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
Satisfied Overall (no pun intended) I bought these as I was looking for a windproof full-zip overpant that was a bit more trim fitting than some of the American branded products. As far as that goes, I'm pretty satisfied. I'm 6'1", 190 lbs. and my jean size is usually 36W 32L. After first trying the XL's I ended up with a large. They're a bit long when standing and the knee pads fall below the knee, but in a riding position everything is right where it's supposed to be. I normally wear them without the thermal liner over office attire when commuting to work but on colder mornings #40-50#, they're not quite as windproof as I had hoped. When wearing them over shorts with the thermal liner installed, they're pretty toasty. Only other complaint is that the waist adjuster is a somewhat flimsy piece of elastic that really doesn't do much adjusting. On other pants I've had, the adjuster acted more like a belt. Fortunately they already fit pretty well so for me, it's not a big deal. October 28, 2013
Good product for the price. It's a little on the small side. The quality is first rate and the price is not bad. A good waterproof overpants. May 13, 2013
Not Waterproof I bought these to replace my old pants (another brand). I commute everyday rain or shine about 10 miles each way in city traffic. Even in a medium rain, water seeps through the butt where I'm sitting. The seams are sealed, so the only possibility seems to be that the coating is not enough to resist the pressure when sitting and therefore water is forced through the pores. Not acceptable at all, especially considering the price. The cut of these pants is a bit tight in the hips and the legs are super long. I'm 5'11 and 185lbs and the large is OK but would be tight with the insulated liner in place. If they were waterproof, the rest would be acceptable, but i'm very dissapointed in these pants.

Rodrigo C: Yes it does have knee armor. Also I believe Anthony does not mention that it has a zipper running from the bottom of the pants to a bit below the hip on both legs, this makes putting on and off the pants a piece of cake. Oct 28, 2013

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.
