Richa Rain Vent Trousers - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Rich Rain Vent Trousers, excellent
Very good quality, I like the large zips on the leg bottoms this allows you to quickly and easily put the trousers on without the need to remove your boots. Generous size. As always rapid delivery from SPORTSBIKESHOP.
Great value compact overtrousers
Great value trousers that come in a really small bag - helpful for packing light! Also very easy to fold up or get on in a rush! We bought these for my wife - we tried a number of different types of over-trousers, these were the best fit overall but had to go up a size to get something comfortable for sitting on the bike for long periods of time. Kept her dry (and provided wind protection). Only downside is that there are no velcro flaps at the cuffs, which is great for getting them on quickly with your boots on, but meant they flapped in the wind - requiring a couple of hair bands to sort!
Good fit not too baggy
I gave a 4 star rating as my review is based on fit mainly as not worn in the rain yet. I tried on several pairs of waterproof trousers and have a pair of the Rev it H20 ones. This pair are a much better fit than any of the others as they are much more tapered even in my size L(I'm 6ft 1 and 34 waist). They have zips at the bottom so are easy to put put on over jeans and boots. Even my H20 ones are extremely baggy and flap about annoyingly. These are much more tapered and I don't see any problems with them being waterproof. They pack down very small in supplied bag and will fit under passenger seat on Street Triple 17. So far so good! I would add that although I'm a size Large for the trousers I had to step down to Medium for the matching jacket as the Large was far too big and baggy.
Great lightweight trousers
Purchased these for a 1500 mile Scotland trip as you never know what the weather will do. I don't like wearing waterproof liners in textiles in the Summer so purchased these. The large leg zips makes them really easy to put on / take off which can be done in under a minute. Super lightweight and breathable you forget you've even got them on.
Very easy to slip on and off
I am a pretty big guy - 6'1" and near on 20 Stone, and I wanted something that packed away small. I chose these Trousers and matching Jacket. I am normally 3XL but went for 5XL. The advice of going for your normal size is probably right, but I tried 4XL which fitted fine and slightly loose, but I wanted to be able to put these on easy when caught out in the rain so went up yet another size. They do flap in the wind a bit but they are very easy to slip on and off and fold down incredibly small, back into their own little bags. I have just got back from a very wet week touring Germany and Austria and they were 100% waterproof. Highly recommended over clothes.
