Joe Rocket Alter Ego 2.0 Pants 4.2 5 51 51
All around good overpants These pants are very comfortable! The knee armor aligns perfectly, and the removable strip that exposes the mesh is a huge plus for warmer weather. The weatherproof liner is very finicky, and the zippers constantly get caught, but most people won't be taking it in and out all the time. The side zippers can also be fairly bothersome sometimes. Overall, I would recommend an upgrade to the zippers by the manufacturer, but don't let it deter you from these pants. They are a little "storm trooper" as far as the style goes, but that's to be expected. November 16, 2015
Great safety gear for those who need something to put over their clothes/jeans/pants The Joe Rocket Alter Ego 2.0 pants arrived to me actually a day earlier than estimated and were packaged in the manufacturer's original packaging. The pants fit great over my clothing although they are a bit long...but I AM short and this happens with me all the time so the pants fit as expected. I am 5'6" and weigh 145lbs. I purchased the Small size (there is no "short" option for the small size, but again I am used to this at my height. I live in Arizona and the first time I rode with the pants on over my jeans it was super warm (the temp was in the mid 90s), but the next time I wore the pants on over my jeans I unzipped the flaps and had the mesh completely exposed (and it was in the mid 80s that day) and I was MUCH more comfortable! I know safety gear is not strictly and solely about comfort though, but rather safety, so I will take the warmth for the sake of protection any day. The lower legs are made specifically not to melt or transmit heat and I must say I never noticed my legs touching the exhaust or see any evidence of melting so far. These pants are great! November 1, 2015
For the money, this is a good product My biggest problem with this gear is that I am 6'4" with a 36" inseam and when I ride, the kneepads sit 4-5" above my knee at the lowest setting inside of the pant. The inseam is fine but the knee padding and fabric needs to sit lower. Aside from that, I love the long zippers on the side and the pockets are easy to use, even with gloves. Only other thing I would suggest is a way to hook it to the Alter Ego 3.0 jacket. October 20, 2015
moto pants Very good in all regards EXCEPT, as reported by others, the side zipper gets stuck a lot. A real defect in the fabrication/design. The zipper itself is good but some of the material gets caught. This will keep you from getting in quickly. Not a problem getting them off. If you have any gut at all, consider suspenders. Good quality. Great dollar value. Fast shipping. NOT waterproof but with the inner rain liner they should be fine. I used with pull-over rain pants. September 14, 2015
Tight Waist Nice features, love the zippered legs, roomy pockets, removable mesh cover, Velcro at the boot with plenty of adjustment. It fits a bit tight at the waist compared to the length ( I got a tall). Length was great for 6'4" but your better be slim like 34/35 at most. There is lots of room for adjustment at the waist with dual Velcro straps but still tight. Construction has lots of unfinished threads hanging off it. I have cut at least 5 hanging threads but otherwise feels durable. Armor is well placed, very solid. I would buy this again if I slim down a size or two and the mesh stands the test of time. August 31, 2015
Great for riding to work I use these to go over my work clothes. Easy to take off and on over your normal clothes. Got a little hot in them even with the FreeAir mesh panel and waterproof liner removed. May 18, 2015
Waterproof liner is bothersome I was looking for waterproof pants but this is the only one I found with a waterproof liner. They are way too hot to wear on a rainy, non-cold day. I sweated drenched with sweat after wearing them. Outer shell needs to be waterproof! Liner should be for cold weather protection. April 13, 2015
Protective but hot and long Even with the waterproof liner removed, it gets toasty inside these pants. Also make sure to order one size up from what you need if you'll be using them as overpants. The weird part was that I'm 6'2" and the Medium length was way too long for me, even in boots I was walking on the back of the pant legs. It's odd to be 6'+ and have to order Short on anything, but that's my next step. March 1, 2015

JerseyDevil: From Joe Rocket website:
The Alter Ego 2.0 pants are over-pants, pre-sized to be worn over your street clothing.
I ordered them in my "natural" pant size and have no problem wearing them over dress pants.

Justin C: Riding pant.
I have worn with shorts underneath with no issues. Denim pants will likely not be comfortable

RevZilla: The Joe Rocket Alter Ego 2.0 Pants are meant to be a stand alone riding pant, however, they can be worn as an overpant if you were to size up. We also have a great selection of pants specifically designed and sized to be worn as Overpants.

RevZilla: Sadly, these do not have the 8" connection zipper. Currently, the only Joe Rocket men's textile pants that include the zipper are the Phoenix 3.0 and Ballistic 7.0. Mar 15, 2013

Jay B asked: How do these fit in the waist and hips compared to the Ballistic 7.0 pants? I bought an XL in the Ballistic 7.0, and they are huge in the waist (I measure a 36" natural waist). I was thinking of ordering a Large in the Alter Ego, but if they don't fit the same as the Ballistic and are less roomy, I may need to get another XL. Nov 18, 2013

Corey C: Jay I wear a 38-40 in jeans and got the 2xl based on zilla's recommendations. They are a bit big on me but with the rain liner in and on cold rides with thermal layer on too they fit good. Being a little big they can always be taken in with the velcro straps at the waist so I'd follow the size chart (I seem to recall I even ordered the XL in these since I never wear 2XL in anything and realized they where too small and sent them back).

They're a good riding pant that I can use all year round. I've warn them in 36 degree weather spitting sleet to 90 degree + days. Hope this helps.

Louis Renaud c/o J. B: the alter ego is smaller on the waist than the ballistic I think. I needed suspenders with the Balistic but not with the alter ego. I have a large size and short on the legs. Now I mesure 30 in the inseams and I have a 36 waist.
Depending where you live you have to think about warm clothing inside the pants. For me they are perfect for normal riding even in the cooler fall but would be to tight for more cloths inside then for colder weather.
They are great in the hot weather on account of the removable strip. I rode Mexico with shorts and the pants and never was i to hot. Good luck

jeff b: Jay,

I still have the Alter Ego pants (XL short) but I no longer wear them. The reason? They are HUGE in the waist. I like a comfortable (roomy) fit, but this is ridiculous in my opinion. The quality is very good, however, so if you're looking for this sort of fit you'll love them. By the way, my waist is 35-36.Good luck!

francis m: I am 36 in the waist and my friend loan me his L before I purchased my XL. The waist was fine and the length was good. My reason for getting the XL was because the knee pads pressed on my kneecaps an caused me discomfort in the L. I found I had the same problem with the XL and after removing the knee pads the discomfort went away. Nov 18, 2013

Michael A: I ordered the XL in the Alter Ego and they fit me fine. My waist is 38 and hips are 42. My XL pants are still roomy, but I doubt that I could wear the Large. If you have a 36 inch waist you are probably going to want the Large size not XL. Nov 18, 2013

Aaron P asked: I have a pair of the original Alter Ego pants, and the small-diameter coil-type zippers along the outside of each leg has snagged, broken, and is no longer usable. I also have a pair of the Joe Rocket Phoenix pants, which have no liner (they are designed for summer riding), but they have a larger molded-type zipper on the outside of the legs. Does the new Alter Ego pant have this same larger molded zipper that might hold up better to repeated use? I'm trying to decide if it's worth finding a seamstress to replace both leg zippers in my original pants, or if I should just buy a new pair of the new model. Feb 10, 2015

loren k: Coil type. I have these and while they are otherwise very well made, are comfortable, perform excellently, and look good, I would say their weak link is still the coil type zipper on the legs. Beefier than I remember on my original Alter Ego pants, but they still snag on the inner flap every time. Have not had one fail, but if your original pants are still in good shape and offer you confidence in their protection ability, I'd say it might be worth having better zippers installed in your old ones.

Steve W: Hi Aaron, the zipper is quite small and sometimes does snag the inner liner. To combat this I sewed down the flap on the inner liner. From a design aspect the flap should be folded to the inside of the pant leg

Overall though they are a great system and well worth the money

A shopper asked: How would be altered ego pants here to the ballistic pants? Specifically in terms of waterproof protection and cold weather riding? I have a pair of ballistic series pants purchased new in 2000 with the removable liner that I have a waterproof shell and wondering how these compare to those. Nov 22, 2014

Michael S: I bought the alter ego jacket and loved it. Then I found out that they had pants that match so I bought these pants. These look and feel great and they match the jacket perfectly. They have the pads (armor) right where you need it. But one size larger due to you will be wearing pants and maybe maybe long johns. There is no doubt that they will keep you warm. Mine are water proof but I would not ride in bad down pours anyway. I hope this helps. Nov 23, 2014

Alden P: I can't speak to the comparison as these are my only riding pants, but they have been excellent under both conditions. I rode 13,000+ miles this summer riding cross-country and experienced a wide range of conditions. Wearing just some blue jeans underneath and some good socks, my legs were comfortable riding in 34 degree temperatures while it was sleeting on a bike with nearly zero wind protection. Nov 24, 2014

Stephen o: I Have the altered egos and there great . In light rain you don't really even need the liner. I wear them all winter but I do still need thermals and pants / long sleeves zippers get stuck on pants a bit much for my liking but at the price you cant beat them Nov 24, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the waterproof liner in the Joe Rocket Alter Ego pants insulated? May 29, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jeffrey H: The liner is not insulated but it makes the pants quite warm. In fact too warm for my daily riding which is usually 40 degrees or warmer. After using them a couple times, I took them out and have never put them back in. Without the liner in light rain I'm still dry. I've only gotten wet in downpours. May 29, 2015
Reply to Jeffrey Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
John A: The waterproof liner isn't insulated but it's basically a plastic pant liner. I often wear it when the temp get down in the 30s. It traps in any body heat and seals out any wind. Hope that helps. May 29, 2015
