That 25% chance of precipitation turned to a definite 100% on my morning commute today. Luckily I finally bucked up and got some Shower Pass Storm Pants and a Shower Pass Waterproof Jacket. I arrived at work dry and with a smile on my face, I do not fear the rain anymore! The storm pants are very lightweight and fold up into a convenient pouch. With a $59.99 price tag, you can't go wrong!

I know it's still 80 deg out here in Milwaukee, but fall/winter does creep up pretty soon. We're stocking up on Chrome, Gore, and Swrve products. Check out all the variety in our clothing section.

Here are some some new items...
Gore Phantom Windstopper Jacket

Chrome Cobra Merino Hoodie

Showers Pass Portland Jacket

We have new apparel coming in soon so be sure to check them out in our New Products section. Swoop up some layers, you'll need them as you heckle your friends at those cross races (that is if you're not racing)! That cow bell is not going to ring itself.

For the Shower Pass pants, how does the sizing work? Is it best to order a size larger than what you normally wear for pants so you can put them over your clothes? I'd like to order some from you guys but am a bit apprehensive not knowing more about the sizing ;)

Got it, well I typically wear a size small. So I took a shot in the dark and got a small in the Storm Pants as well.

The general fit is a standard straight leg, basically enough room if you were wearing a pair of Dickies and even tights underneath.

The cuff doesn't taper too much from the leg area which is good if you do wear full length pants under them. However, the Storm pants have some velcro tabs to tighten up the fabric to prevent it getting stuck on your chainring.

The garter around the waist was a bit snug but I was wearing shorts with a belt. They weren't too tight where it affected my comfort. So to answer your question, if you wear a size medium, get a medium in the Storm Pants.

Hope this was helpful!
