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
Good buy 4 year's without pants yesterday was the first time I stayed warm at night. Very comfortable and alot of value for the price, thanks joe and rev! February 26, 2015
Solid pants Great ventilation options, as well as a nice removable liner. Pockets just fit my wallet and phone, which is a really handy thing. All the zippers make for easy access to your boots and whatever else you might have on under them. November 10, 2014
A Great Value.These are my second pair. Ist lasted 7 years. Good fit, I lost 30 pounds and needed to update. The zip-off panel is great for added air flow. The removable water resistant and wind proof liner is great for cooler morning riding. EZ to add and remove. Pockets will hold your wallet. Heat resistant leg panels keep the pants looking good. Reversible leg zippers allow ez access with boots on. Liner has ez access zippers as well. Zipper on back of pants allows the jacket and pant to be zipped together. Adjustable inner knee pockets put the knee armor where you want it. I ride Sport bikes and Sport touring. These pants will go the distance. A great value. Customer service is AWESOME! My agent took his time with me. Knowledgeable and patient. I will buy again! August 11, 2014
Great features, extremely cheap zippers! The good: They flow a ton of air with the removable center strip open. The bad: The pockets are shaped weired and very small, it's hard to get your hands in the pockets. The main problem is the extremely cheap zippers that are used on the removable air flow strip and the zippers on the legs. My kids Walmart back pack has heavier duty zippers than these pants. After only one ride up a dusty dirt road and the zippers get jammed with dirt and won't function. I expect the zippers to be broken by the end of the ridding season. My prevoius pants were joe rocket ballistic pants which I had for more than 10 years no problems what so ever. The zippers on those pants were heavy duty, they could be completely covered in mud and still function. I'm highly disappointed in their alter ego pants. Joe rockets quality has gone down hill. I would look for a different pair of pants, like ones that use YKKY zippers. August 3, 2014
As promised I had taken my measurements per the web site and had to exchange them for an larger size. This way a very easy process and the turn around time was very quick... These are just a few reasons why I keep coming back... June 16, 2014
Nice pants for any rider Pros: they're comfy, fit well over jeans or shorts on hot days. They feel durable. Mesh vent under removable cover lets in a good amount of air, haven't ridden in 80s but feels good in 70s. Armor fits nicely. Haven't used waterproof liner but definitely makes the pants warm. Cons: needs some more vents. Don't look very good, bulky, etc. Button on inside liner tore off the first time I removed it. Will sew it back on, but kind of annoying. Overall good pants for most seasons, we'll see when it gets in the 90s. June 9, 2014

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
