Richa Ladies Rainpants - Black
Customer Product Reviews
I usually take a size small but went up a size as other people had recommended, the medium fits perfectly although they are slightly long on me ( I'm only 5ft tall) but when I'm on the bike they cover down over the top of my boots. Also keeps me dry which is the most important thing.
Bought these to replace an old well used pair of Richa waterproof over trousers that had sprung a leak (they were years old and lasted well)! This was the third pair I tried and they fit perfectly (sent back 2 others to a different supplier as they were massive). I am only 5ft tall and the others made me look like a clown! Good quality and fit well over my jeans/boots. A bit long when walking to my bike but this is an advantage on the bike as trousers sit nicely on top of my boots so no wet ankles!
Smart functional trousers
Misses is well pleased with these, I put her in the garden and hosed her down and she was still dry, well her legs were. Ok only messing, she is a size 10-12 so got her a Medium (12) and they fit her perfectly, Velcro straps on bottoms to go over boots and they are double layered to keep the rain out, there are non pockets to speak of, although the drawstring waist allows easy access to the trousers you have underneath if you need to get to stuff and the Richa logo down the side is reflective, all good and exactly what she needed to save her legs and bum getting wet, would buy again in fact I purchased the male version of the same make, great service from SBS.
Good quality and reliable
This was a repurchase as I managed to tear a hole in my previous trousers (totally my fault and not the product!). After trying out different waterproof trousers from different brands and not liking how they fit etc. I reverted back to these. They are a really good quality pair of trousers - they never let water in and fit really well (I'm Size 6-8 and 5 foot 2, so finding trousers that fit is a nightmare!) Only problem is they don't fit over boots - you have to put the trousers on before your boots - but that's a minor inconvenience in my eyes! Great service from SBS as usual!
I haven't tested these in the rain yet but they feel good quality.. The sizes are a little off, I purchased the Medium because the other reviews said go one size bigger and they were still snug around the hips. I wear a size 10 Route One ladies bike jeans and the Medium size only just fits over them. I also bought the hip protectors for the jeans but there's no way the waterproofs will go on if I put those on too.. Very nice trousers on the whole though just need the sizes sorting out. I'm assuming if you had the small you'd be wearing those with nothing underneath!!
Ordered the small ones as I am a size 6 and they actually fit for once. Not used as yet but they look good on and not like I'm wearing a Black Bin Bag! Very pleased with this purchase and they will roll up and fit in my jacket pocket so handy to take when weather looks a bit dodgy.
I wear Frank Thomas size 12 leathers and I decided to play safe and buy the large size based on previous reviews. They fitted very easily over the top so think I made the right choice. They are very lightweight and fold up really small. I bought them to have for our roadtrip across Europe last week. Luckily for us the weather was pretty kind and we only had a couple of fleeting showers so although I used my new jacket I didn't feel the need to use the trousers. They don't look anything like the flappy bin bags that I have seen other people wearing, so I would definitely recommend!!
