Your commute just got better.
The Showers Pass Transit Pants are built to fend off any weather and get you through your commute happy and dry. Made of breathable yet waterproof Artex three-layer fabric with a cycling-specific fit, these pants provide some of the best wet-weather protection available. Showers Pass adds fully taped seams to fend off even the tiniest of water droplets and reflective elements to increase visibility in low-light conditions. These pants also pack easily into their own stuff sack for transport in case it starts to rain later in the day.

I purchased the showers pass transit pants about two years ago now.
I not only commute daily but im also a courier cyclist.
I have put these pants through hell and back,
Everthing from -8° cycling in white outs to torrential rain .
Ive logged at least 12,000 miles on these pants and only in the last month or so have they started to truly degrade.
A rip at the seam in the crotch.
The protective barrier on the fabric is entirely gone.
And they have shrunk and shrivelled from all of the salt on the road.
All in all for $118 these pants served me well and i am not upset at all about loosing them after two years.
(Ps. When i got these pants i could hold a cup full of water up to my leg with them on and my leg would remain dry and the cup would remain full, amazing)
The lack of even a single pocket is a design flaw. Pretty cheesy to not have a pocket on a garment this expensive. Considering sending it back.
Nice packable shell pants
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bought these as an outer layer for this winter/spring. Tried them out the other day with a pair of cycling shorts under them with temps in the low 50's. They helped keep me warm and got me out on the bike when I otherwise wouldn't have. They seem to be top quality and looking at the way they are made I have no doubt that they are water proof. They come with a stuff sack and will stay in my pack through the spring though I have no real intention of riding in the rain. I am 6'0" and 180 lbs with a 33" waist and 34" inseam- the large pants fit me just fine.
Great for during the fall & even Winter
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
These pant's keep my legs from getting sweaty, keeps them dry during rain, Excellent wind protection, & keeps my legs warm in the low 40's with just cycling shorts on underneath.
Haven't tried in winter yet.
I already owned Showers Pass Storm Pants. These kept my legs warm in -26 degree weather with high winds.
I'm sure these will do the same job.
