Showers Pass Club Convertible Pant Shorts

3/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $134.95


Product Description

Can't decide between pants and knickers for your commute Maybe it's cold in the morning, but much more tolerable in the afternoon. Thanks to Showers Pass, you can have it both ways with their Convertible Club Pant. These convertible pants have zip-off legs at the 3/4 point, so you can make a change mid-ride if that light sprinkle turns into a heavy downpour.

Strengths:    Convertible
Really high visibility
Knee area agility
General wear durability
Looks good


Weaknesses:    1. Crotch area is bound to tear if you try to move more freely. Had to do a repair and put a patch there. Size larger would probably worked better, though I fitted in 'LG' by all criterias.

2. Other thing is you have to either buy Showers Pass Suspenders or find narrow belt, otherwise pants won't sit properly.


Bottom Line:   
After getting crotch torn apart, was looking for 3/4 convertible alternatives, and the only direct one I've found was RaceFace Ambush Convertible Pants.

Chosen to give to local repair shop, which worked out well.

P.S. Do not expect it to be fully waterproof. As well as alternatives it's water/wind resistant film inside and DWR coating outside. So be warned when washing them or using wildly: reapply DWR coating to restore pants usefulness under rain.

I'm using it with a merino bottom baselayer, adjusting it to 3/4 as needed. So far worked good in all seasons including winter trips, you just need to ride actively to heat up yourself. But if it's raining and your DWR coating is absent, expect thighs to be wet.

Overall, I'm satisfied, but won't buy a second pair, instead will try alternatives
