Held Aqua Over Pants - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Very solid Held Aqua Over Pants
High quality, easy to put on, thanks to the long zips. So far totally wind and water proof but pretty heavy, as they are made of two layers. In hot weather it can be an issue. There is an inside pocket-bag into which you can fold and squeeze them in. Not a simple task but then you have fairly small (size of two, three fists) packet to stow. Very good for the price, even if they lack of any reflective surfaces.
This is my second pair of these the first ones lasted about 3 years which is good as they probably covered about 20,000 miles. Length is great I'm 6 foot 3 the internal pocket thing is useless and can get in the way when putting them on. I would definitely recommend them.
Lined overtousers make such a difference to get on and off, and when there's a high leg zip life is even better. Good long legs too so they stay tucked over my boot tops. These look to be really well made; but then, Held gear always is. In comparrison to other brands of waterproof overtrousers these are good value. One thing to watch is the size. I have a 32" waist but went for an L. I'm glad I did. And M would have been too small.
Very easy to get on, zip at the bottom of the legs which make it easy to get on over boots. Roomy without being baggy. As people have mentioned, they are quite long, but to me that's perfect as it means they don't ride up to the top of your boots. Have proven waterproof in the one rain storm I have been through so far, which is the most important thing! Will be interested in seeing how long they last, in my experience I have never had a pair last more than 3 years before they start leaking, hoping these break the mould and last a bit longer.
Just the job
Just what I wanted after getting a soggy experience caught in the rain. Fit over my normal riding trousers with ease so I am protected from falls but equally from the wet. Kept me dry as a bone next time it rained. Good quality trousers from a reliable bike gear manufacturer with the added bonus of Sportsbikeshop service.
Very well made and heavy duty
I've bought a pair way too big in the waist and legs ( does anyone have legs this long?!!)- But this is what I wanted. I have a mobility scooter and plan to get out and about whatever the weather! These will keep me warm and dry!!
Much thicker than other over pants I have tried. I'm only 6ft but found other brands waterproofs were nowhere near long enough however these are perfect. The internal pocket/carry pouch where you are supposed to stuff the pants into is just a really bad design so I don't bother.
Best value waterproofs
This is my third pair in the last 6 years, or so, of very heavy use. Others I wore out/damaged. Best value there is - totally waterproof - good wind resistance - easy to put on and, most important, long enough not to lift above your foot/ankle when you sit on bike - rare!!
Practical pants that do what it says on the tin
Good pair of waterproof pants that cut wind chill and keep the rain out. The knee length zips provide good access for boots and make the pants easy to get on and off. The only issue is that the sizing is 'just right'. I'd probably buy the next size up in hindsight.
