Icon PDX Rain Bibs
Bought these for a cross country ride in mid May. Rode in rain for 9 hours the first day. These pants failed to keep me dry even in the first hour. Like another poster said...the crotch leaks....BADLY! It wasn't going from my coat down into the pants either, my entire belt upper fly/zipper area under the bibs were bond dry, my lower crotch and my butt and as the day progressed, further and further down my legs, were soaked! do not buy.

Icon PDX Rain Bibs
The legs seemed really, really long but when sitting on my bike the length was good. I found them well built and easy to get on and off. Also they seem a little bit small in the waist so I got the next size up, but not to big to be a sail. The price is right. Recommended.

Great waterproof pants
Had these for a couple of weeks now, and used them a couple of times in light rain. No leaks so far. They are frikkin LONG though. I have the large Patrol pants, and they come up pretty big, so I tried starting with the medium to wear over my AGV Leather pants in the summer, but while the medium was to long, they were also to narrow around the waist, so I went to the large, which now fits around my waist, but is ridiculously LONG. Fortunately they have an adjuster on the ankles so I can cinch them up tight and just have baggy ankles. As with the jacket, they are more yellow than the fluroscent yellow / lime of the patrol jacket, but still plenty bright enough to be seen. I am 5'7" tall, with a 29" inside leg measurement, with a 34" waist. it seems like these are made to fit someone about 6"6" tall weighing in at 175 :( After all that, they are still a great waterproof pant, and I would recommend them to anyone else provided your not to broad.

See me in orange.
The products arrived quickly and in new condition. I purchased both the jacket and the pants in orange. In a dark downpour, I may look goofy as a big bright orange guy on a bike, but if anyone thinks I look goofy, that means they saw me, and that was the whole point. I've yet to actually be in any rain, but the gear is well built and seems like they'll keep me dry. The bright orange is very visible, I just wish it had more headlight reflective material on it. There is not much airflow at all, which will make for hot riding even in the rain in southern Arizona. But the piont is to stay dry, and I'm not sure how much airflow you could actually engineer into a waterproof garment anyway. For thier price and visibility, I think they will do well.

This product is comfortable and provides good protection
It's slightly long for me which means it'll bunch-up on the bottom. It's a shame that it doesn't come in different length sizes as well as waist.
Other than that it's a good product. It's comfortable, provides good protection and is made of good quality materials.

Great Features, Good Value
Unfortunately/Fortunately? my review is can only be applied to the matching PDX jacket as i have yet to use the pants. I will say the construction seems solid and if it is even close to the jacket in performance its all good as they say. Taking a nice ride to the Adirondacks in a few days. Almost a guaranteed shower somewhere in that ride. will update if the opportunity presents itself.

This product is easy to put on with riding boots
As these pants have full length leg zippers, it is very easy to put them on with riding boots along the side of the road.
I could do without the suspenders as it meant that it was harder to put them on over my riding jacket. They were much easier to put on when I had the luxury of removing my riding jacket.
The pant leg stirrup that goes under the boot at the heel was also another nice feature.
So far in moderate rain, these pants have kept me dry.

Regret my purchase
I bought these during a trip from a brick and mortar store. My experience has been different from the other reviewer's experiences. They leak in the crotch, in a mid control riding position they are very tight in the knees, overly baggy around the calves and ankles, and one of two buttons over the zipper broke within the first five uses.
I seem sealed them and that seems to have helped seal up the crotch. Ultimately, I would not buy these again.Your mileage may vary though.Kudos to Revzilla if they keep this negative review up.
