Rev'it ZIP Pants?

Anyone use these? I found one review of the old style pants that said they were hot... I'm sure there's more to them than that! ;)

I have a pair of Factor pants that I absolutely love... but I need some overpants for commuting... Therefore they need to have armor in them... Preferably I want to not look like a snowman. I also don't need mesh, but some sort of venting system might be cool... (har har literallly)

I love the quality of the rev'it gear and think these might be the way to go! Give me some more info intrepid ADVers!

I was wondering the same thing. Can't figure out how long the zippers are and how much trouble they are to get in and out of for commuting. Someone must own these.

Have them, love them...

I am not built for Rev'it gear (thick thighs), but use the Fit as a summer weight pant.

Skinny folks should love them as covers, thick guys like me have a comfotable, duarable pant that does not make you look like a French tire character logo.

If you can find them on sale buy them!

Don't suppose you have any pictures? How far up does the zipper run?

Thanks for the info.

The picture on the site shows that the zipper only goes up to the reflective part, so a little bit above the knee.

That is, unless they managed to make some invisible zippers.

Hi Keiji,

As Underkill mentioned the zipper runs just above the knee. You can see a picture of me on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/revzill...7615027113076/

One thing to keep in mind, these are a waterproof pant, there is no venting. If ventilation and hot weather is more of a concern then waterproofing I would probably steer you somewhere else (like the Mistral Pants, although they are not made to be specifically worn as an overpant, you can do so by ordering one size larger) The Mistrals also have a waterproof liner which can be removed.

I wear the Zip Pants when doing a short hop in bad weather and I just want something to throw over my jeans.

Thanks for the detail. Wish the zippers went up a little higher, but I'll have to try on a pair to see how they'll work for commuting.

Sorry UnderKill for completely hijacking your thread.

Never actually got around to buying them! I have a freaking $70 credit at Beachmoto burning a hole in my pocket... Was waiting for more reviews actually...

Does anyone have any further feedback on the Zip Pant? Considering these, but the "Polyester 600D" shell isn't exactly giving me warm fuzzies about spending the money on them vs. just biting the bullet and going with the Darien Light's (+$60 alteration fee) to get a 30" inseam that actually fits. Like the fact these Rev'its some in short, but not so hot on the poly vs. a Cordura shell.

Any opinions on the quality of the materials on these pants?
