Aerostich Ultralight Rain Pants

Aerostich Ultralight Rain Pants

Product Review (submitted on June 14, 2011):
I've had the same pair of these emergency rain pants for 2 years now. Most of the time they stayed stowed in my solo bag, being used 5-6 times a year. They used to perform great. This evening a 1/2 hour ride in moderate rain revealed the dreaded crotch leak. A closer inspection shows that the seam tape in the crotch has started to peel up. (The description says "seam sealed, but they are not. They are seam taped. There is a difference).
Ultimately, I figure that 2 years is a good shelf life, and I will probably purchase another pair. I wouldn't don them if I was leaving the house and it was already raining heavily. But I would, and do, keep them on the bike at all times and they have kept my jeans dry up until now.
