MT’s former Editor Groff hates putting wet weather gear on so much that if he’s within a couple of hundred kilometres of his home when it starts raining, he doesn’t bother. It’s easier to put waterproof pants on with your boots removed but standing on one leg trying not to get your socks wet or covered in burs makes most riders feel as ridiculous as they look.
Thirty-Second Waterproof Pants were designed in Australia and are made from 12oz wax cotton with YKK zips.
The heavy-duty zips run from the top to the bottom of each leg, meaning you can step into the pants quickly and easily. A wide storm flap then covers the zips to provide a full weather seal. An additional ankle strap provides a wind seal at the boot end and prevents flapping.
The pants are available in five sizes ranging from small to 2XL and the waist is elasticised for the best comfort while sitting on the bike.
