Good Rain Overpants
Truly waterproof rain overpants unlike its very similar twin, the AXIS Overpants. No built-in protection and why there is only a button fastener on one side of the waist really beats me. Tends to be a bit long for me but that keeps rain from getting into your low-cut shoes when putting your feet down at a stop. No compartments or pockets although i wish there were.

First Rain Pants...
I grabbed these pants in preperation for a week long trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains and they did a great job riding through 2 downpours for multiple hours. I ordered a Large set as I boarder lined Medium/Large, and the Large are a bit baggy but not obscenely.

Simple and dry
I bought these pants after trying and returning a pair of over-pants. Most of the rain I encounter is in the form of sudden thunderstorms so I wanted a pair of pants that I could put on in a hurry without the extra bulk of a thick fabric. As with all rain pants they aren't very breathable but they will keep you dry. Good value for the price, they do what they are supposed to do and they come rolled up in their own bag for easy storage.

Good basic rain pants
Like I said, good basic rain pants. They are high waisted and have Velcro around the bottoms to snug up around your boots. I wear a 9 1/2 boot and have no problem getting my boots through without unzipping the sides. My only complaint is the amount of fabric out blowing in the breeze between the bottom hem Velcro and the thighs. I'll gladly put up with it though. I've been through many (Firstgear, Fly, Klim, etc...) pairs of rain pants and they all leaked. I've been through two rainstorms in these with no leakage at all. No torrential downpours but good dowsings. I ride everyday and in all weather from April through November in Maine so decent packable rain gear that works is such a treat. I've paired these with the Cyclone H2O jacket which I love.

Impressed with Revit Gear - Again!
I've had a Revit Nitro jacket for a few years and it has served me very well. Just bought the Sphinx pants and I am once again impressed with the quality and well thought out design.
All other rain pants I've had were too tight in the critical upper-leg/seat area making it difficult to get them on over boots. The Sphinx pants have long zips and lots of room so I can get them over my boots easily. The zips are full length so you could completely unzip the sides but with this design it's not necessary.
All the little details also make a difference. There's a wide hook and loop strip around the ankle which lets you tighten up around your boots. The zip pulls have bright colored cords attached which makes them easy to find and pull even with gloves on. There's a flap on each side of the waist with two press stud positions for tightening the waist if necessary - the waist is elasticated as well so there's a lot of flexibility here to achieve just the right fit.
And I was pleased to find a long rise, which means the waist sits comfortably above my jeans. In other over-pants I've used this is always the uncomfortable bit. With these coming all the way up and over my jeans, it avoids this problem and means you don't get any exposed areas around your lower back when you sit in the saddle.
I bought the medium size and although I'm quite thin and short there was clearly plenty of room and length in the legs.
I haven't used them in the rain yet so I can't comment on whether they are waterproof. But they are made from the same material and of the same design as my Revit jacket and that has proven to be 100% waterproof even in prolonged heavy rain (yes Sweden, I am talking about you!)
Overall a great choice.

Jeffery Q:They're not as loud as snow pants due to the material. it's thinner and a lot more soft. Besides, I'm not in them long enough to really notice any sound. As soon as I'm out of the rain, I take them off asap. As far as melting on hot pipes...I'm sure they will if they're touching long enough. Fortunately, I don't have that problem. On my bike, the exhaust is away from my leg...
phil m:There is no nomex or leather on the inside of the legs to protect from hot pipes so yep..gonna melt. I dont find that they make any noise and I use some velcro bands to cinch the excess on my lower legs. They work great and with the full zips are easy on and off.May 7, 2015
Doug H:The quick answer is yes and yes. They aren't quite as bad as snow pant. Think regular rain pants, no real difference. They are polyester of some sort and would definitely melt on pipes. I can't think of a waterproof material that wouldn't.Mar 25, 2015
joe h:The waistband label states the pants are 100% poly so I would guess they would melt when in contact with extremely hot pipes. Regarding sounding like snow pants? I've never heard snow pants.Mar 26, 2015
joe h:Ankle adjustments are made with velcros strips that run horizontally along the bottom of each leg. The wearer can simply fold any excess over their boots and secure with the velcro. Have not been in the rain yet but feel confident that I'll be dry when the inevitable happens. :)Jul 17, 2014
Greg W:I've used mine 3-4 times, velcro seems to have plenty of adjustment and has stayed 'stuck' 200-300 miles at a time. I use with Sidi Adv boot. Little baggie, and like all rain gear I've had, hot. But not complaining...Jul 17, 2014
A shopper asked:We just sent back 2 Nelson Rigg Rain Suits. The main reason was the 24" zippered gusset along the sides of the pants. The material was folded over (creased) and the zipper kept getting caught. I could see someone trying to zip these quickly while under and underpass and either ripping the material or breaking the zipper. Do these pants, with the full length zipper zip ok without catching any material inside? This is very, very important. Please send me a photo of the pants unzipped. thanks,Aug 10, 2014
