Customer Reviews for Alpinestars Andes Drystar Textile Pants - Black
Draughty and clammy
Ordered Andes V2 for a trip I was going on, it turned out they weren't going to be in stock two days before I was due to depart so I opted for these. First impressions were good, they seemed good quality and looked nice. I ordered the XL due to other reviews stating to go a size up, they are big still for me and I'm 6ft 2 with a 36" waist. The waist adjustment is slight and these fall down if worn without the zip done to the jacket(havent tried the braces yet) when on the tightest setting. At the lower part of the leg there is only a velcro strap, whilst this seems strong you dont get a good fit around the boot and whilst riding the leg flaps and you get a draught right up your legs! I'm considering getting more velcro stitched on. Without the lining in they are very clammy on warmer days, the XL fits nicely over a pair of Jeans however. The ventilation is ok, the front vents/pockets dont do much as they are positioned in such a way that doesnt allow wind to flow in as much as over. Overall they are fine but I did expect more from AlpinestsrsRead more
Great quality perfect for a first pair of riding pants. I gave them 4 stars because 1) the velcro ankle fastening doesn't (in my mind) close tight enough around my ankle 2) leg length is too short for me - bought L and I'm 6'3" - but that's not really the fault of the trouncersRead more
Good fit, removable braces, full removable liner, can't fault these pants& delivered in good time too, thanks to Sportsbikeshop, spot on !Read more
Great kit for little money.
Use these everyday in all weathers, always kept my dirt and warm, only one negative they could do with a zip on the bottom of the leg rather than a Velcro strap.Read more
Trip to Scotland in the wet!
Thank goodness these trousers arrived next day thanks to sportbikeshop! I had the Alpine jacket and these trousers were a perfect match that zipped together. On that bank holiday weekend I was in a very wet Scotland and the trousers were faultless - dry and warm. Comfortable for all day riding, nice and light. Would have liked a better fitting round the boot as only a velcro fastener, but it worked. Removable liner when warmer and expect them to be a good all year wear. Recommend both Alpinestar and sport bike shop!! Thank youRead more
Good but not quite Carling
These Andes Drystar textile trousers from Alpinestars are on the lower end of the price range and for the money they are very good choice for quality. The textile fabric is thinner that some more expensive trousers in the range but that is understandable. Where they fall short is on the fitting of the CE knee protection. The leg sizes get longer the larger the waist. I went for a 36" (XL) and I am normally a 32" leg but the XL trousers were 33". There is no adjustment in the armour so even when on the bike they didn't cover my knees. Another point is the thermal liner doesn't zip in at the bottom of the trousers so if you are wearing them over your boots you can feel the wind going up your leg.Read more
Used these to wear in riding to France Very warm and comfortable on the bike Good on price and should be able to use for many years to comeRead more
I bought another pair of these trousers only because I have lost weight. The originals remain in great condition and these are the same quality a number of years after I bought the original pair. I find these trousers have good, acuurate sizing, are warm in winter with the liner and definitely keep you dry in in the rain.Read more
Warm and waterproof
I was after a pair of waterproof textiles which would zip to my alpinestars jacket for winter commuting, and so far these haven't disappointed. They have so far been warm in sub zero temperatures (although my commute is only 15 miles), and have survived a couple of downpours without leaking. My only criticism would be that they could do with an extra length of velcro to close the side of the ankle, which is designed to fit over boots. Usual first class service from SBS.Read more
Really good value trousers, and as with all Alpinestars kit the fit is good. Warm in winter but lack of vents prevents them getting 5 stars from me; I reckon it'd be too warm for summer even with the 'layers' removed.Read more
