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.

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.

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.

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.

Good product for the money, but...
Wanted some waterproof textiles to help stay dry during downpours. The removable insulation is good and keep you toasty warm. The built-in in hip pockets and knee guards are some of the main motivations for getting it. Aside from those, it zips up nicely with a Alphinestar textile waterproof jacket I have. Ordered a XL since i am 6' but the knee guards rides a little low when standing up. Not sure how the knee guard is going to stay in place during a spill. Would be nice to have a adjustable velco or drawstring right on to of the knee guard from dropping or going out of place while airborne.

Kivaan E: I wanted pants that offered some crash protection and waterproofing without having to remove my work uniform but with a removable thermal liner for use in the long, hot summers here on Australia.Feb 24, 2014

A shopper asked:Hi, i want to use this overpants with my jeans underneath. Do i need to pick a bigger size for this pants to fit me like an overpants? or i just pick my actual size? Thank you very much for your time.May 11, 2012
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
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.Oct 16, 2012
A shopper asked:I am unable to decide between these three pants. will wear as a overpant mainly in winter for going to work. Need something warm because we tend to get cold here during winter.Dec 21, 2012
