RS Taichi Matrix Overpants - RSY547

I wear these every single day, over my jeans. The Matrix Overpants will keep you warm during the off season. I can attest to the waterproof-ness of these pants, in a year of use in Portland, I've not been wet once.

Sizing is spot on in the waist and the diameter of the legs, though the length is slightly long. The knee protection stays right where it should and doesn't flop around.

These also provide an ankle to mid-calf velcro adjustment so you can either, tighten them over your boots in the rain, or tighten them to your leg and tuck them in your boot.

A: The answer is...not exactly. They are called “overpants” and supposedly sized more like “overpants”. But because the other Taichi pants have pretty narrow hips and slimmer fit, that just makes the Matrix fit more like regular relaxed fit pants than true overpants. And to me, it’s not really an “overpant” unless is has very large opening access zippers so you don’t have to stuff your jeans down inside. Without having big access zippers, I hesitate to recommend using the Matrix as true overpants like what you would want if you were trying to commute daily with them or something. Now, many people do choose to wear them over shorts or over sweats or something. But I would recommend them more as a cool weather, waterproof option for just a straight up riding pant as opposed to a true “overpant”.
