Strengths:    They fit fairly well. Ankle zips are nice.

Weaknesses:    A little too short and they don't breathe well. Might be
better snowboarding pants than riding clothes.


Bottom Line:   
Roach needs to wake up. I waited 3 months for this order. I still don't have my shorts- they sent the wrong size- the wrong color jacket, and didn't tell me part of my order was not only going to not be available for another 2 months, but hadn't actually been made in the preceeding 6 months.
Simply absurd.

In the dozen times I've talked to them, I was never given
a straight answer where my stuff was, or why it was taking so long.

Sure, the clothing is nice, but there are other companies out there making clothing that actually cares enough about their customers not to jerk them around, lie to them, and treat them like gullible morons.

In conclusion, I want to think Ingrid and her employees at Roach for wasting so much of my time I didn't think twice about taking the time to write this review. For those able
to buy in a store and never actually deal with Roach at all,
maybe it's a fine deal. God forbid you actually have to contact Roach....

Strengths:    Comfortable, Wash well and easy access for when you go to the little boys room!

Weaknesses:    Could be more water proof and has a limited size range.

Bottom Line:   
I ride everything from all day XC rides to short sharp DH runs, and these pants can do everything. There as tough as any MX pant I've tried yet there comfortable enough for a full day in the saddle. These pants unlike a lot of DH pants have a velcro strap on the bottom of the legs so you can decrease the circumfrence of the lower legs to make sure they dont catch in a triple chainset. The velcro and buckle closure system on the front means that a custom fit is easily attained and access to your 'bits' is quick. The only real drawback with these pants is that they only come in one size so they will only fit people with a waist between 32" and 34". But if these pants fit you can't buy better. Oh and by the way if you ever rip these pants Roach will replace them free of charge - Bargain!

One handed Lance Armstrong in Capri pants...

I was headed for work and was stopped on a corner getting ready to merge into the main boulevard. Its about 5:30 am, still dark and from the corner of my eye, I see a bicycle at full cruising speed on the sidewalk headed straight for me. I look intently and I start to see the rider more clearly, and ... Read More »
