Whether you're mountain biking through the rain-soaked Scottish Highlands or bike touring along the drizzly Pacific Northwest, the Gore Bike Wear Men's ALP-X 2.0 GT AS Long Pants provide the fully wind- and water-proof protection needed to fend off nasty weather, while breathing extraordinarily well to keep you from feeling cold and clammy. Its Gore-Tex Active Shell is designed for high-octane activities, optimized for moisture management and maximum breathability. However, it eagerly repels wind-driven rain and wind when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

This wet-weather pant includes a back-zip stow pocket for conveniently stashing 'em when you're traveling. The adjustable hook-and-loop hems work nicely with your favorite cycling shoes, while the elastic waist provides a customizable fit with its adjustable drawcord. Additionally, the reinforced seat prevents premature blowouts from rigorous riding.

Snug is something of the understatement

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small

So, these pants have all the basics, and some of the bells and whistles. But--as others have said--they are snug in the waist. Too way too snug. I'm not overly-stout, for an American (as compared to the Euro bod in the Castello/Assos model kinda way), but the 'waist-to-length' ratio seems undeniably off...the waist is super snug, while the leg is super long. Stranger fits have happened, but this one seems more than normal

Not the overpants I was looking for

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
  • Fit:Runs small

The sizing runs small. I am 6'4" tall with 36" waist. I ordered XXL to use as overpants for commuting, but I could barely get them on over lycra. I returned and ordered PATH instead. PATH has more relaxed fit and a little give, so is much more suitable for my needs. I still needed XXL though.

re: Pants leg straps....

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Thanks, Zak, for the tip:

I found a great product from Deuter...a really nice cuff that's a little wider than most, but not so much as to be anyoing; has a nice reflecting strip and secure velcro. Surpirsed B.C. doesn't carry this item! Had to special order from a local bike shop instead. Bottom-line: Great answer for a otherwise great pair of bike pants; reccomend the Deuter pants-leg straps, too!

"BINGO"!!! That's exactly the one!

On the 'package' label are the numbers:

Art NO: 32852

Col: 7000 black

PLU# 4 046051 029146

You'll see what a difference between these, and the more common bands sold everywhere else; and you'll be glad you invested a few $ more!

Hope this helped!

Unanswered Question

I'm 6' tall with a 29" waist but a 34.5" inseam. My biggest problem with pants is getting a long enough leg without getting a huge waist. This problem is compounded with cycling pants because when I pedal, the pants lose another inch in leg length if they don't account for proper articulation. Can anyone tell me if Gore run true to length, or short/long?

I am 5'8" with a 32" waist and 32" inseam....

I am 5'8" with a 32" waist and 32" inseam. Normally take M or L in pants. Wondering if I should go with L or even upsize to XL for these pants. Any advice?

Best Answer

Great question but in order to answer it I have to ask one of my own.

These are a snug fitting pant so if you are looking for something to just throw over your bibshorts in the rain go with the medium. If you are looking for a bit more flexibility with layering go with the Large.

I am 5'11 175 pounds and the large fits me great.

And for the sake of transparency I am the Gore Rep

Will they fit over the POC VPD 2.0 knee...

Will they fit over the POC VPD 2.0 knee pads?

They are very loose-fitting, I would say they probably will be fine. There is no stretch in the material, but plenty of room; only fitted in the seat and waist. Extremely baggy from knees down. Also, you will want a pants leg protector to keep the bottom pants leg out of the chain. Deuter makes a awesome band. You may want to size up, as the waist/seat doesn't give, and these run a bit small (other than the knees/down area).

Hope this helps a bit.

I would suggest to contact B.C. for more measurements/advice.

Do you make or sell Gore tex bicycling...

Do you make or sell Gore tex bicycling pant for men that are 5'6". I will continue to look somewhere else because not all men 6' and over. I hate having to always have them shortened.

Also, just maybe the women's XXL (or even the XL, but they tend to run smallish, and you want to be able to pull these over your bike tights come fall/winter) may just be the ticket. The women's length is 31". You can go directly to (or for the larger XXL for the women's pant. And, don't forget to get a pant leg strap/protector to keep pants leg out of the way. Deuter makes a awesome band ($11.00), wider than most (but not too wide as to be annoying), a nice wide reflective strip around the whole thing, and nice Velcro adjustment. I ordered through my one of my local bike shops (or go to the source). By the way, the men's and the women's pants look the, no worries! And while your 'at it', try Gore's ALP-X (GT) 2.0 Jacket for complete protection; it's so light, you can easily pack it and have it on hand,(as I do now, after being caught in one-too-many surprise rain storms!)... "JUST IN CASE"!

Hope this can still be a help.

How do they fit ? I'm looking for something...

How do they fit ?

I'm looking for something to wear over my jeans for rainy comutes.

are they loose enough or shall go up one size ? Thanks.

Best Answer

There is no "give" in these...they are just a 'shell' of rain-proof material. They run small, so make sure you order up (as Gore, like most bike clothes, runs small) to make sure they'll fit over your other pants, especially bulky jeans. I will tell you they are a bit "baggy", especially from the knees down, and as I found out for myself, and now recommend to others: get yourself a pants-leg band or strap...and I highly recommend the one Deuter makes ($11.00) as I stated in my other reviews.

And remember, they are only a shell, you will still need a good insulating baselayer/thermo tights come fall/winter to wear underneath these.

And again, if you can't find the size you think you need, go directly to Gore!

Hope this Helps!

Hey guys, I got these (woman's) pants but...

Hey guys, I got these (woman's) pants but was concerned about how baggy they are on the lower leg...that they may get caught up in the chain...does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the bottom pant leg clear (without rolling them up of course!)? Also, seemed that the velcro didn't stick very well. Thanks for any helpful ideas.

You could always get a rubber band and wrap that around the cuff of the pants, that's what I used to do when I didn't feel like rolling my pants up.

Another option would be to get a cheap velcro strap like the one featured at the link below.
