I waited for a year for these to finally come back in stock and I have not been disappointed. I went for a size small as per the sized guide (5'11", 170lbs, 32 waist) and they fit like a glove. Not a lot of room to wear much more than bibshorts or the 7Mesh Glidepath pants underneath. Size up if you want to wear heavyweight pants underneath but then you would be sacrificing the outstanding fit and articulation of the Thunders. They feel weird off the bike but once you get pedaling they make sense and you can forget you are wearing Gore-Tex pants. I haven't overheated nor felt overly restricted with these pants. I haven't trimmed any of the bottom neoprene gaiter as I like them long to give max coverage for the ankle overboots. I've been commuting and biking for 25 years and these are the finest waterproof riding pants I've ever tried. To nitpick I would say a little bigger outside accessible zip pocket would be nice to hold a few bigger things like phone AND keys but otherwise 10/10.

I’ve been cycling consistently since

I’ve been cycling consistently since 1986 including competitive road, long-distance touring, commuting, and recent gravel riding. It’s provided an opportunity to put the evolution of fabrics and emerging technologies through the rigors and challenges of fit, function, and longevity. These are the best I’ve worn, ever. Fit is subjective but these are ideal for me, and are most comfortable. Function—especially during shoulder season rides, I’m often faced with putting gear on, off, on, off, with the frequent changes in temperature and precipitation across several hours on a long ride. I’ve put these on at the start of a ride and they remain comfortable across a decent range of conditions. I’ve only had them a year, but so far indicate they’re good for the long game. The stitching and build are robust, and they’re constructed like Fort Knox.

Bomber review. Recently completed the

Bomber review. Recently completed the Colorado Trail race where at times we were bombarded by near-freezing rain and wind. The 7mesh rain pants... painfully expensive. Absolute beasts of protection. Light, reinforced / extra durable in the crotch and cut perfectly to avoid rubbing them into bike/chain or otherwise. Saw a lot of people using non-cycling specific pants and even pants cut into shorts because the cuffs would get stuck in their chains. Crazy! If you're in need of some bullet-proof rain pants, 7mesh is crafting some gear that actually can help you do crazier things. I like that a lot

I bought these to back

I bought these to back up my Revo waterproof shorts for really foul conditions. To be honest, Ive worn the shorts more often than the full pants even in really cold conditions the shorts are great and give plenty of freedom of movement and I generally find I keep warm enough provided I keep moving. But for those really horrible days the pants are great. I did find it hard to fit idp7 Sam Hill knee pads under them as the below-the-knee part of the trousers are quite snug. Expensive but worth it in my view for those really horrible wet/cold days!

These pants will keep you

These pants will keep you dry. My first ride was in whistler in the pouring rain and I thought I would be drenched by the end of the ride. To my surprise 3 hours later I was bone dry. These pants will endure all the mud, water, snow, and riding you can throw at them and out the other side unscathed. A truly outstanding pair of waterproof pants.

Had many waterproof shorts over

Had many waterproof shorts over the years and finally bit the bullet on the thunder pants. Doesn’t matter how wet it is out there they keep you dry. A zip on the front would be a welcome addition as would a little more room for knee pads as I’ve had to buy some that are slightly less bulky to fit underneath.

Kept me warm and dry

Kept me warm and dry in recent downpours. Lightweight, fit is great, breath very well. The quality so far (a month) is good. The long leg zippers make on and off easy and quick, including over hiking boots. Have used them for road and mountain biking and hiking. The unique cuff is a great idea. Matched with 7Mesh jacket, can get out all weather. Worth the $$$.

The waist construction is sublime

The waist construction is sublime and the on-bike fit is next level. It's a bit annoying (for blokes) going for a pee as they're is no zipper. I 6ft 2" and medium fits perfect. I haven't cut the neoprene cuffs as i left i wanted the length they offered. Gore-tex pro is bomb proof used them in horrible, sandy offraod conditions and they remain dry inside. My one bug bare with 7mesh is they could make the product imagery so much better on site by actually showing the product features properly. The product looks a little bit underwhelming onsite but actually the product in hand is amazing with so much thought gone into construction and fit.
