How long is the inseam of the XL size of these pants?
Pant size typically refers to the waist measurement. Inseam for most manufacturers are 30" for short, 32" for regular, and 34" for long.
Unless specified, you're safe in assuming a 32" inseam.
Light & Waterproof (ish)
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Good pants. Super-light and fantastically windproof. I have worn these cycling in windy sub-zero (celcius) temperatures and just above zero with light but constant drizzle - they were fine. Anything heavier than a drizzle though and they start to leak at the knees.
Another downside is that the fabric is so light I sometimes fear I will tear them on branches or furniture, it hasn't actually happened though.

I don't see a word about breathability here. If a rain garment isn't breathable, you can't ride in it--you'll be wetter than if you wore nothing. Anybody know if these things breathe?
Try the Pearl iZUMi Select WXB Barrier Pant. It breathes.
