These are great for the muddy rainy days. I really like the amount of room for knee pads and they are long enough to cover most of my legs

I love how hard wearing,

I love how hard wearing, light and waterproof these shorts are. The quality is excellent. The fit however kind of ruins them for me. I fall between medium and large with hips at 40”and thigh at 25”but I am 5’8”tall and have a 30”inseam. I originally bought the medium but a test ride on the road immediately told me they were too small. I thought I could make the large work, they look like capris but I don’t care as long as I’m dry. The opening in the leg snags my pump and the damper on my shock. My knee pads also bind inside the legs of the shorts. Unfortunately I’m going to have to get rid of them. I wish they had wider and shorter options but to be fair I wouldn’t say I am average build.

When I first heard of

When I first heard of waterproof shorts I was skeptical. However, I bought a pair about 5 years ago for an off-road stage-race for which rain was forecast. Since then I would consider waterproof shorts an essential part of my cycling gear; I’ve even used them on road rides to prevent that gritty, soggy-nappy feeling. My old Vaude shorts were starting to delaminate and so I thought I’d treat myself to a pair of 7Mesh Revo shorts since I’m planning a few races which are likely to have inclement weather! After some helpful discussion with the 7Mesh team I decided to go for size Small – I am 1m80, about 72kg, with 31/32” waist and 32” inseam. The shorts are a perfect on-the-bike-fit they extend beyond the knee on the front, but a scalloped to prevent rubbing on the back of the knee, this helps reduce spray going up your leg they are very comfortable to pedal in. The build quality is second-to-none. So far I’ve only had one ride that warranted wearing them – sleety rain, wind, plenty of mud, quite horrible conditions really! But the shorts, with just a pair of road bib-shorts underneath were perfect. Legs stayed warm and dry; pedaling was comfortable; crutch is well cut and not baggy, so no problems with the shorts getting snagged on the saddle on steep section. So bottom line: great build, great cut, keep you dry, comfortable to pedal in; very impressed!

As i received the shorts

As i received the shorts i was a little skeptical about the length of the shorts. Standing in front of the mirror and thinking that these looks on me like the 3/4 pants of my grandfather, but as i sit on my bike they are awesome. The knees are covered, and thats great in the rain. Love the shorts and the overall comfort, not only dry and windproof, theres a little more i‘m Not finding the right words for.

Was that impressed with the revelation jacket I purchased the Revo shorts and glad I did!! Great fit (bit weird at first) but they do exactly what they say on the tin! Keep me dry and the harsh UK winter at bay! Highly recommended

These shorts are top notch...just

These shorts are top notch...just like all the other 7mesh items I have! Perfectly made - length, material, look, feel and practicality. They totally stop the wind while riding, both at your seat and just below your knee. I have not tested them yet in the rain but I know the Goretex fabric will do its job. Thanks (again) 7mesh!

I was skeptical about non-stretch

I was skeptical about non-stretch pants but after having them for a year they are my go to winter and shoulder season kit. I look forward to shredding muddy days in the saddle and having a dry butt and briefs on and not deal with swamp ass on the way the ride home. Hose them off and they are ready for the next day. They have been holding up well shrugging off a few minor tumbles.

Nicely made shorts with long

Nicely made shorts with long legs and a good construction, made with Gore-Tex Active. Haven´t had the chance to use them in rain yet. But given the raving reviews this shouldn´t be a problem at all. Other than that: They´re quite roomy and have long legs. They really lack pockets with zippers for phone, keys, etc and have no pit zips/ventilation at all. The closures for the width adjustment are made from plastic but look ok, there´s just one snap button on the waist band, but it´s backed by the zipper, so it should stay put.

As a MTB guide/coach, a

As a MTB guide/coach, a pair of waterproof short is a must and the Revo short is a great option to keep your butt dry all day long. At first, I found them rather long as they fit almost like a 3/4 pant on me (I'm a size small), however, that works well to keep your thighs covered through the pedal stroke. The back of the leg has a shorter cut so the fabric isn't too bulky behind the knee which works well with knee pads. They are goretex so the fabric is obviously stiffer (with no stretch) and there is extra fabric around the butt which creates a bit of a bulge when standing, however, that is not an issue while riding and I suspect it was designed like that to make sure the short was comfortable while sitting on the saddle. I would only use them in the rain or cold weather when you need protection from the elements otherwise the added stiffness and warmth of the goretex would be too much. I highly recommend the Revo short for riding in the rain.
