REV'IT! Acid H2O Rain Pants
Good rain pants for the price
These pants are a good fit for my emergancy rain gear set. Good price for a well fitting pant. I especially like the adjustable boot leg opening. They can easily be slipped over your boot for a quick change.

No dry pants...
As the others rain pants that I tried, this one don't keep your balls dry...
After 1 hour in heavy rain, my pants (jeans) was wet (butt and ankles).
Could work for a small ride, and light rain, but not tought enought for a storm.

Basic uh-oh rain gear
I walked into the Phila showroom asking for "emergency stuff sack rain gear." This is it. Rode from Phila to NYC through New Jersey "backcountry." On the way back it was scattered thundershowers with a 45 minute deluge in rural Pennsylvania. The gear kept me dry, plain and simple. There was no flapping. It is hot when standing around. The material is pretty thin, but that is all that is needed for keeping the water out. It really does keep the water out. For comparison, I didn't have glove covers, and they were soaked. Rest of me was comfy and dry. A good addition to a basic get out of trouble kit.
I agree with other posters that a waist drawcord would be helpful. The elastic was a little loose. Also agree that entry into the leg with a boot requires some effort. There is a hook and loop gusset at the ankle, but even open it was a bit of a struggle. Maybe taped zippers would be better. I am typically 3xl in RevIt sizing, but I think 2xl would probably work for me.
My recommendation is neutral, but there is no button for that . These are not as nice as the complementing jacket.

Rain Pants - Tough to get boots through leg opening
Overall - a good rain pant for real rain - not drizzle drizzle. These babies DO keep you dry in a downpour! Comfortable (once on) and manage to look pretty good. For rain overpants, pretty good means you don't look like the Michelin Man. I'm 6'1" 220 with a 32 inseam and 37 waist and the XL fits comfortably.
Only bone to pick is they're tough to get on. Getting a size 46 boot through those leg holes is tricky. I worked out my technique in the driveway in dry weather so I'd be ready to go when rain requires quick response. Would be nice if they put in a leg zipper so us old guys could get these on without risking injury.
A good product. Can't speak to durability. We'll see how they hold up over the years.

Waterproof, but questionable durability
I wore these pants in a 2 hour rain storm. They kept me dry as as claimed, but we're very difficult to put on on the side of the road. I bought these as an emergency pair of rain pants, but they're so difficult to put on over jeans and work boots that they almost have to be put on before you ride. Care has to be taken because boot treads will rip the waterproof coating. There's no leg zippers so most boots will have to come off to put them on. Also when putting these pants on in the rain, if the lining gets wet it sticks to your clothing making it very difficult to put them on. Theres also no drawstring on the elastic waist so they slip down when riding. This isn't a problem if you have the Nitric 3/4 rain jacket, but your plumbers crack will show with many straight cut rain jackets. I think if Rev'it added leg zippers and a drawstring waist, the paints would be pretty decent. I have since sold mine after my first use in the rain.
