Great pants, comfortable, durable and good protection
I've had the same pair of Joe Rocket over pants for over ten years. They were excellent at the time - warm, with a windproof liner, comfortable, with adequate protective padding. However, they were starting to wear out, and the zippers started to become ornery. Halfway home on a recent long distance road trip, one of the zippers failed while my son was wearing the pants, and we had to effect a roadside repair using nylon wire ties:

It was time for new pants. I had been wearing (and loving) my Olympia Airglide 3 Mesh Pants in warmer weather for two years, so I decided to look at Olympia's offerings in a colder weather pant. I didn't have to look far: after trying out several different pants, I decided to go with Olympia's Ranger 3 Over Pants.

I normally wear a size 34 in pants, and I tend to like my overpants to run a bit large, so I ordered mine in a size 36. When I received them, I was surprised - the upper waist and hips fit perfectly, but when sitting on my motorcycle, my knees were squeezed uncomfortably - and that's with the inner liner removed. With the liner installed, the knees were very tight, enough that I knew I would not be able to ride like this for more than a few minutes. After talking with the very friendly people at Olympia (I actually received an email from the owner of the company!) I decided to exchange them for a size 38.

The size 38 was obviously too large around the waist, but the knees, while still snug, were fine. Fortunately, the pants come with a velcro-fastened belt which when snugged up, keeps my waist tight enough that the pants are comfortably held in place. I have very long legs, and the cuffs were just the right length for me. The legs of the pants can be easily altered by any tailor to fit a shorter leg, up to about 6 inches shorter.

Features of these pants as published by the manufacturer:

Outer shell constructed of coated 500 and 2000 denier Cordura fabric
Waterproof/breathable membrane adds double waterproof protection
Removable Thermolite insulated liner pant
Full side leg zippers
Storm placket front fly detail
Removable and adjustable height CE Motion Flex armor at knees
Cool mesh airflow lining
Removable EVA compression foam at hips
Custom Fit detailing at waist and bottom hem
3M Scotchlite reflective piping side leg detail
Relaxed tailored fit
6 storage pockets
8" connecting zipper for jackets

I have now had these pants for a month and a half, having ridden approximately 2,000 miles through weather ranging from 40F (4C) to 85F (29C), bright sunshine and pouring rain. While they are billed as water resistant, I wouldn't use them in an absolute downpour. For that, I wore my Olympia Horizon Rain Gear on top of these, which kept me completely dry. That said, I did get caught in a few passing showers after I had removed my rain gear, and the pants shrugged it off - water beaded and ran off the pants. I would feel fine wearing them in light rain, but would want rain gear for heavier weather. Below 45F (7C) you definitely want the thermal liner installed, and you really don't want to wear these above about 80F (27C)- for that, I go with my mesh gear.

The pants are constructed of a thick and strong Cordura, with much thicker and abrasion-resistant Cordura on the knees. There is highly reflective Scotchlite piping down the side of each leg. Two waterproof (lined) thigh-mounted pockets and waterproof (lined) hip pockets are on the front of the pants.

The seat area also has thick, abrasion-resistant Cordura, and two more reflective strips cross each ankle. Don't discount these reflective strips - at night time, when in headlights, these strips glow extremely brightly! The seat also has two more waterproof (lined) pockets.

Looking at the seat closely, you can see the heavy duty Cordura. The pockets are fastened shut with a single snap.

The legs are lined with a very soft mesh which allows your legs to breathe. Note the zipper does not come all the way down, to allow tailoring of the leg length should you require it. There is a snap to hold the liner in place when it is installed. Once the zipper is shut, a weatherproof double flap covers the zipper. The zipper itself is a quality heavy-duty zipper - I don't think I'll be needing any roadside wire tie repairs with these pants. The zippers run the entire length of the pant leg.

The cuff has a velcro adjustment to allow it to be snugged over your boots. This prevents wind from blowing up your leg.

The knee armor uses Olympia's standard, unique adjustment pocket, which allow for adjustment of almost 6 inches up and down for height, to match the position of your knee. The inside of the pocket is lined with strips of velcro, you simply fasten the lower strip at the point you want the bottom of the armor to rest, insert the armor, then fasten the remaining velcro above it. It's ingenious, and works very well. Remember to adjust this armor for the position required when you are sitting on your bike, not when you are standing!

The knee armor is a quality piece of CE level 1 armor. It moves and flexes easily, so it bends with your knee. It is of a shape and size such that it could be replaced with aftermarket level 2 armor should you wish - but honestly, this is a really decent piece of armor.

The same can't be said for the hip protector, however. Just like my Olympia Airglide 3 pants, the hip pad is just that - a foam pad, and offers no impact protection whatsoever. I added a SAS-Tec Level 2 adaptive armor which I purchased. I insert both of them into the pouch on each side of the pants - the foam closest to my skin, and the SAS-Tec armor on the outside.

The thigh pocket on each leg is quite large, lined with a waterproof membrane, and sealed with a zipper and two snaps on the fold-over flap. These substantial pockets will keep anything dry that is put inside of them, and they are easy to access while riding, even while wearing gloves. The hip pockets are also lined with the same membrane, however the pockets are near impossible to access while sitting on the bike.

The fly of the pants is fastened with both a zipper and velcro, and sealed in behind with a gusset to prevent any intrusion of water. The waist is fastened shut with two snaps, as well as the belt that is included. The thermal liner pants are completely windproof and fasten into the pants both at the top and bottom. They also have zippers running the entire length of the pant leg. The inside of the thermal liner pants are quilted, and they have a warm, thermal lining. These pants are quite warm on their own, and when inserted into the over pants, are more than capable of handling temperatures down below freezing. The top of the thermal liner pants also have pockets, a zipper and gusset.

Wearing the pants along with the matching Olympia Ranger 3 jacket and Alpinestars Valparaiso Drystar Gloves, I am ready for moderate to cold weather riding. The reflective piping on the pants glows quite brightly in the dark when illuminated by headlights (or in this case, a camera flash). The reflective strips across the back similarly glow very brightly.

Pros:
- Very warm in cold weather
- Completely windproof
- Water resistant
- Zippers can be worked with gloves on
- Easy to get on and off, even when already wearing boots
- Big pockets allow for lots of easily-accessed storage
- Comfortable
- Very good knee armor
- Good adjustments to fit individuals
- Strong, reinforced abrasion-resistant Cordura fabric

Cons:
- Useless hip padding (but easily replaced or augmented)
- Narrow knee sizing
- Thermal lining pants bulky to carry when not installed
- "whiff whiff whiff" noise wherever you walk

Overall I'm quite happy with these pants as a replacement for my old, worn out over pants. As I mentioned, I've got about 2,000 miles on these pants in varying weather conditions, and these pants have shrugged off anything I could throw at them. Recommended.

Performed as advertised. Good value.
I got home last night from a 1300 mile trip riding a standard with no wind protection. The temperature ranged from 37f to 86f and it rained two different days. I wore these with an AST2 jacket. I ordered one size larger to use this exclusively as an overpant. I did not use the liner but wore my regular pants under. My legs never felt cold but I might have been more comfortable with the supplied liner pant at 37f. I stayed totally dry in the pouring rain. There is no provision for air flow so I did get a little warm at 86f. I should have worn shorts under that day. They still look new! Great product.

Perfect for the chilly/cold/wet riding utilitarian
I've only had these pants for two weeks but I've gotten plenty of cold (25F), chilly (40F) and wet riding conditions to test these pants out appropriately. In short, they do well in all of these conditions.

With jeans on underneath I find that even at 25F I do not need the thermal layer for my 9-mile, 15 minute commute, although at highway speeds for upwards of 20 minutes would require the thermals.

I wear a 29-30 jeans size. After trying on these in size 30, it was a simple deduction that I ABSOLUTELY needed the 32. So the fit is small, but if you intend to have any flexibility with even thin pressed pants on underneath these pants WITHOUT the thermal liner in, then get the next size up.

I tested the side-leg waterproof pockets in a rainstorm with my phone as cargo - not a drop inside the pocket. The pockets are ergonomically placed for easy access.

The padding in the pants seems to be on the skimpy side, but that's fine considering my previous winter getup was running tights underneath jeans so this is a vast improvement. The positioning of the armor/padding is perfect for my 5'9", 140 lb frame - no modifications necessary. The pants fit well over riding boots but if you have really voluminous boots these pants may not fully velcro at the bottom which is fine since the booth is still covering that area.

The style is ho-hum, but that's no matter since this is the only pair of pants that I've researched at this pricepoint with thermal liners, full leg zips, waterproofed outers and generally favorable reviews.

The only reason I did not give these pants all 5-stars is because I have no baseline to compare with. I rated airflow a 4 because I bought these NOT to have airflow and they seem to do a great job with preventing airflow except my bum gets slightly chilly sometimes, but it's still warmer than the tights/jeans combo!

Great Pants
I have owned a pair of Ranger 2 pants for over 2 years and they still are in fantastic condition except for burn marks from my dirt bike exhaust pipe. I figured it was time to buy another pair for an upcoming road trip on my GS. I ordered the Ranger 3 pants and they arrived yesterday. I usually wear a 34-35 size waist so I ordered a size 36. The fit was perfect. I am 190 lbs and 5' 11" and with my riding boots on I do not have to hem them at all. If these pants last as well as my older ranger pants and I no doubt they will, than I will be very happy. I have ridden in pouring rain storms and stayed dry. The Olympia Ranger pants with the Oly AST Jacket is a combo that can not be beat for features, quality and value.

Great for cool weather riding
These overpants are substantial and extremely warm, even without the thermal liner in place. I wear them over jeans in temps ranging from 40F to 60F. When I get off the bike I start sweating and can't wait to take them off. While riding, nothing gets into them: air, coldness, water. It all stays out. Great for cold and poor weather, but definitely not a summer pant.

They fit pretty baggy in the legs and a tighter in the waist and seat. They are very long and the EZ-hem label is sort of a joke. There no way to hem these without some major surgery. For now, I just fold up the bottom 2 inches and they look great. With the reinforced knees and pockets they do have a tactical swat team look and the Cordura makes a zipping noise when walking. People notice you and move aside to let you through. So I guess that's a perk.

A few minor cons: There are no through pockets, so you have to remember to move your wallet, phone, etc. to the overpants pockets. It would also be nice to have some adjustability in the waist. I find the waist a bit tight, but I know the next size up would be too big. And finally, the interior mesh seems like it will get shredded over time from my boots going in and out.

Definitely Worth a look
2 weeks before a 2 week road trip to Austin for MotoGP, my AeroStitch Darin pants broke a side zipper and could not be repaired in time for the trip. I was forced to look for a replacement and I searched RevZilla to see what they had available. I have a Olympia summer jacket that I really like and when the Ranger 3 over pants came up in the search, I decided to give them a try. I normally wear a 38 pair of jeans and decided to order these in a 40 because I wanted to make sure they were comfortable over my jeans or shorts.

The pants are very durable, well built and come with a pair of insulated liner pants that are very warm. My initial impression was that they were really long and I could have gotten away with ordering a size 38. I wore them on 3 days of the trip and found them to be very comfortable, they offered great wind protection and I have no doubt they would have performed great in the event of a "Get-off". On the last day of the trip riding out of San Antonio, I drove into a thunderstorm that lasted 2 hours. It was a torrential downpour, I had my Darin Jacket and the Ranger 3 over pants on. The pants kept me completely dry, not a single leak.

I recommend these highly with the caveat that these are cool weather pants. I wouldn't wear them in hot weather. They will be way to warm (even without the liners). Great build quality and great protection. These will be my "Cold weather" pants going forward.

Very Nice Pants
I bought these to be worn as a Winter overpant with the expectation that I could get 3-season wear over-all out of them. The heavy duty nature of these pants and the lack of venting makes them a bit unsuitable for Summer months, but depending on your heat tolerance level it might be possible. I wear a 38 waist jean and am 6'3, 255 with long legs (35"), so I was concerned that the leg would not be long enough, a common problem for long-legged riders such as myself. The agent who assisted me told me that he thought it would be OK because of the easy-hem system. I ordered a size 40.

The pants fit perfectly, given they are being worn as overpants. I can wear them with the liner in, or over jeans with the liner out. Not both. With the liner in I wear a base layer. The waist was a bit big, but a belt fixes that. I love the liner. It is really warm, and I have ridden in 30 degree temps with no issues. You can pop the liner in and out at will, and you can wear it as a destination pant, as they have a decent cut and style to them. The shell is very well made. The 2000 material in the impact areas is nice to have and does not infringe on comfort or wearability. I did have to mess around with the knee pockets in order to position the armor correctly, but I eventually found the right spot. The leg did in fact turn out to be long enough for me, but I am not a huge fan of the hem system. I would have preferred it if they were just a tall pant, as the cuff kind of has an unfinished look to it. Besides, if you really look at the cuff I do not see how these could be hemmed at all, let alone easilly. But that is a minor gripe, the leg was long enough so I'll take it!

They have survived their first Winter very well. They are durable, and all of the zippers and stitching are dong great. I have been in fairly heavy rain on multiple occasions with them and they have not leaked a drop. As mentioned, they are very comfortable on which is great when you are on the bike all day. I was able to wear them right up to the Summer, so I am getting 3 seasons out of them. Sans the gripe with the cuff, these pants look good, perform well and are a great value for the price point.

Good but could use improvements
These seem like good pants. Well made and seem sturdy. I haven`t been wearing them long, but a couple gripes: could use waterproof zippers. Parts of my pants got damp after several hours in the rain. I`m guessing the water leaked through the velcro and the non-waterproof zippers. Also, the velcro can be pretty annoying.

On a sport touring bike like my old Concours, the knee armor rides up and is no longer directly over your knee because of the bend of your legs. This can get uncofomfortable if you`re riding for a long time.

Good pants for less than 60 deg and rain
I was under the impression they were a match for AST 2 jacket but they are a cold weather only pants and the worst part they have no vents. For a winter and rain pants they are good. I rode in 34 deg and pouring down rain for hours in comfort. If they had vents like AST 2 I would have gave them a perfect score.

Great pant, but too long for short folks
Great construction and protection. My only gripe is that it is too long for short people with 36" waists. Yes you can get it altered but it doesn't have the full 6 inches as mentioned in the video. When you consider the Velcro strip at the bottom (that needs to be reattached) you are only left with about 3 inches. Also the alteration shop lady freaked when she looked at the tough cordura...this ain't a bad thing.

Paul F on Jan 21, 2014
They appear to have great protection at seat and knees, adjustable height knee padding, can be worn at least 3 seasons and look more tailored that other over pants.

Had a larger pair - love them but lost weight. Purchasing a pair I can keep on without suspenders! Great pants.

Great over pants.. original purchased from a referral from friend, second purchase was a replacement from accident.. went down at 70+ pant held up great got up walked away minimal damage to me do to great gear.....

I chose these pants in order to stay warm in 20-40 degrees F. I saw numerous reviews talking about how they were both waterproof and warm, probably the warmest in Olympia's line up. To top it off it had full zips on the outside of the pant legs in the outside AND the liner to put on over my boots and other clothing. I could care less how it vents in warm weather since (to be honest) I won't be wearing more than jeans if it gets that warm outside.

I have always been very happy with Olympia products. It's always top quality.

I need an "all weather" gear where I live. I already bought an Olympia jacket that has been superb.
LUIS ANGEL B on Oct 31, 2013
Olympia provides great features and quality. There is alot of value here. I needed an impervious outer pant for cold/wet weather. Already put these to the test and they work great.

I ride to work in dress pants, shirt & tie and decided that these pants would be a good addition to lengthen the riding season in the cool mornings. Hopefully, these will be better than the mesh wind pants I wear now for the 40 degree mornings that are coming.

Previous experience with Ranger Over Pants. Excellent fit (for me), riding comfort, protection (including weather) and product features.

Can the removable hip padding be replaced with CE rated armor?
A S on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but not all CE rated armor will fit. Also, using the CE rated armor for the hips might make the pants fit too tight around the waist if they're a little snug already. I bought the pants first, then added hip armor after I tried them on. That also allowed me to measure the pockets for the hip padding so that I could find armor that would fit.
How's the fit on this as overpants? Do I need to order a size up than my normal waist size? For comparison, I use size 34 Rev'it Airwave as summer overpants for my normal size 33 pants, would a size 34 work here? And is this affected by whether the thermal liner is used or not?
koruthaiolos on Dec 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Hi John,
My Wife bought me these pants and I love them. I wear a 32 waist normally and the 32 rangers work out just great. I am 6'1" and weight 170 lbs. They are a snug fit but I would rather have them snug then flapping in the breeze. I have used them both with and without the liners. I have also used them in rain, hail and snow. They are truly cold weather pants. Even without the liners, you will be very warm above about 60 degrees. I used them on a 7,000 mile cross country ride and was very comfortable under about 60 degrees. Too hot above that. The liners will easily take you below freezing. No vents make for great weather proofing, but can get pretty sweaty when it warms up. A good idea to bring a second pair of pants for rides that include a variety of temps. I live in the mountains and can go from freezing in the am to 70s in the pm. Good luck and keep the rubber on the road and the shiny side up...
Regarding the adjustable knee armor... What is the range of adjustability in inches? Thanks.
Paul M on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Adjustability is about 4 or 5 inches - up and down. I found the side to side a bit loose - sometimes feel that if needed the knee pads might not be where you need them - between your knee and the road.
Can the hip inserts be replaced with any kind of CE rated armor?
A shopper on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends, the existing pads are about a quarter in thick that slide into mesh pockets sewn into the garment. If you wanted to replace them with pads similar to the kind Joe Rocket uses, the answer is yes. If you wanted to use pads like Aerostitch use's, No they wouldn't fit into the mesh pockets.

That being said, I really like these pants. They are warm, water proof and would serve you well in a get-off. The Pads are in my mind, "good enough".
Are the side leg zippers two way?
A shopper on Nov 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, they are not, but they don't really have to be because they are full length so getting in and out of them is a breeze. Remember, these pants are going to protect you from rain and cold, and a 2 way zipper set would compromise that ability. So if you are looking to vent, these pants are not going to be for you. The Ranger 3 is for Winter use. I have a pair and they are fantastic. They are my go-to pant when the weather starts to turn.

Hope this helps.
I read that the exterior Cordura fabric is "coated" which I normally associate with urethane which is very waterproof and not breathable. The description goes on to describe a "water proof breathable membrane" which I can describe as Goretex like but you can't. So which is it? Is the over pant coated in the waterproof breathable membrane or the simple urethane coating which is waterproof but not breathable ?
A shopper on Mar 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: There is no exterior coating on the outer Cordura fabric. The waterproof membrane (not sure of brand name) is a separate layer between the outer fabric and the inner mesh lining. There is a separate removable liner pant which is also water resistant and I use them only for really cold weather. The Ranger 3 pants do not breath well except for minor wicking due to the mesh lining. These are NOT hot weather pants but are very comfortable, durable and well designed/constructed and completely waterproof in my experience.
Sizing is a bit small for an overpant. If you want to use them as overpants I would go one size bigger. *disclaimer* I have thick cyclists legs and a 48 year old gut..:-)
If you are looking for HOT weather pants I would go with the Airglide pants.
I have the Olympia dakar duel sport jacket.
will the renegade 3 pants zip to the jacket ?????
Russell S on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would expect it to, but I could not say for sure.
Does this pant have a 2-way zipper on the side?
Stephen F on Apr 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it is fixed on top, opens at the bottom.
Does the zipper on these men's pants go the same direction in the mensAST2 and the women's AST2 jackets? Or does Olympia do a women's one way and a men's the other directions?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I just checked (my wife and I both have AST jackets), and the zippers are the same and zip in the same direction.
I'm interested in getting these pants for my husband. he owns the AST jacket. he wears a 31-32 waist in jeans. He is wanting to wear the Ranger 3 as an over pant. He might wear them alone if the liner is installed. My question is what size would you recommend to get him? He doesn't like loose feeling clothing but prefers well fit.

thanks
Ginger B on Dec 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Ginger, the 32 should work, especially if he wants to wear them with the liner in. The thermal liner is pretty substantial, so most guys go a size up to wear these pants as an overpant. But if he is a 31-32 and not a solid 32, the 32 should work. Now, with the liner out, these will loosen up quite a bit. But these are designed to be overpants.

The other thing I should mention is the leg. They have a fairly long leg, but again they were designed that way so that you can easily have them hemmed. I have long legs, so I found that these pants were perfect for me and no hemming was required. A pretty rare thing for me!

Over-all I love these pants. They are well made, very comfortable, completely waterproof and durable. They are also a great compliment to the AST jacket. Not really a pant you want to wear in the Summer because there isn't much in the way of venting. These are Fall/Winter pants for sure.

Happy holidays!
