Waterproof overpant

I have a big trip coming up.

I ride mostly in armored jeans on my 990 so what I need is a pair of WATERPROOF overpants. Nothing fancy but a couple pockets would be nice.
Must be waterproof and breathable.

Recommendations?

Suggestion

Since your headed to "The great white north" as soon as you get out of Az you will need something a tad bit warmer, I would suggest Firstgear h2 overpant, not only extremely waterproof but also warm (not to great for here in AZ) but where your going you'll want a little warmth also.

These pants have full length side zippers, storm proof velcro closure, pockets and most of all they are reasonably priced I think I got mine at Go Az, sold them several months ago to a guy way up North. Thats the cool thing is you can get them for your trip then sell when you get back and not loss much on the purchase. Up side is you are warm,DRY & protected for the trip North.

Have fun, ride safe, take lots'o pictures wish I was goin' wit ya' & you suck by the way

Aerostich AD1 or Dariens. They both have full leg zippers, which was a big plus for me. The Dariens didn't fit me well; the waistline sat too high for my liking. The AD1s fit a bit lower like regular jeans do. I love my AD1s so far. Though, I've only got like a thousand miles on them, maybe less. Earlier in the week, I was out in light to moderate rain for about three hours without any leaking. So far so good.

I've got the stich Darien outfit. Works great. Easy on/off, waterproof(NO leaks), has it own pocket pants yet allows access to your inner jeans pockets too. Mine are black and use them in winter with the gray Darien jacket and summer with a leather jacket. I also use the wide(2") stich suspenders rather than a belt. More comfortable for me. I've had them for 10 years and unless I start crashing a lot I don't see the need to replace them any time soon. Not fashion gear but good gear.

Olympia Ranger 2. I got one size larger than normal and wear them over my jeans. Works great!
