Transit 2 Pants
- Product Review (submitted on August 26, 2010):
- I live in Hawaii and have had a pair of Transit Pants for about four months now. I do not have the jacket. The pants are performing wonderfully. The fit is perfect. They were comfortable right out of the box. I like the fact that they have reflective material on the back of the legs and belt loops (if you need them). They also have a zipper on the back for attachment to the jacket, but as I said, I don’t have one so cannot say how well they work together. The weather in Hawaii is of course favorable to year around riding. However, it does get wet. You could start off on a beautiful day only to have the wind blow rain down from the mountains on you. Jeans don’t cut it if you are a regular commuter. These pants have now gone through a number of rain showers and have worked perfectly – 100% waterproof for sure (and they look good). The downside is that, as leather, they can get hot. It is fine if you are blasting along at 60 mph, but can become a little uncomfortable if you are stuck in traffic. If you ride in a warm environment, I would not recommend that you wear jeans or other pants underneath. It will be too hot. In Hawaii, I wear a pair of pajama bottoms underneath right now, but a pair or Merino wool long underwear would probably be even better.
