    I wonder why theres noone waterproof/resistant pants in MX style inside the boots.
    I basicly found only one Kenny Enduro but the 38 size is soldout everywhere.
    Anyone know of pants like that?

    Wouldn't that funnel the water into your boots?

    What's your secret to know you won't be riding in heavy rain? My weather app shows no rain while I'm soaked.

    I guess it depends on how "waterproof/resistant" we are talking about. The Klim Dakar pants are DWR treated to resist water. I have a pair and they do repel splashes and light sprinkles, but I don't think they are going to stay dry in any measurable amount of real rain.

    I don't care if my boots are full of water as long as my juicy thighs don't get wet?

    I’ve been looking for waterproof in the zipper pants too. My klim Dakar’s do horrible in any type of rain. I even added some more waterproofing solution to the fabric and they still don’t do well. Currently considering a waterproof or better DWR treated BDU paint. My brother has worn that type of bdu pants for adv riding for years. And a quality BDU is decently abrasion resistant and DWR treated. Plus usually much cheaper. He wears some that are light and stretchy, they have plenty room for knee guards underneath and tuck into his Sidi Crossfires no problem.

    My understanding is the fabrics are all waterproof, but they don't tape the seams. To my thinking, that makes them about as waterproof as you'd need for splashes, mud, water crossings etc

    As a 75 year old former college FB (real FB) player my thighs are (or at least they were:lol2) sort of big and maybe not so sweet. Rain liners of good quality work well for anything short of a monsoon level rain, then you really need a coated outer layer-see commercial fisherman who use the outer rain stuff.
