Some days, we all wonder why we choose to commute. Dim, blustery fall nights when the raindrops feel more like ice are some of the worst times to pedal your way home, but having the right kit can make them feel at worst bearable, and and best downright enjoyable. Showers Pass created its Refuge Pant specifically for this purpose, cutting it in a regular fit that easily accommodates tights, shorts, or thermal knickers. The brand's 3-layer Elite fabric stands guard against raindrops and wind, with fully-taped seaming fully sealing off the pant. One of the main issues with rain pants is their remarkable ability to trap heat, but Showers Pass combated this by adding perforations to the reinforced seat, thigh vents, and ankle zips, the latter of which serves the dual purpose of adding airflow and making it easier to slip the pant on and off. Though the pants have a roomier fit than most commuter kit, Showers Pass added hook-and-loop cinch straps at the bottom to keep the legs away from your chain, and it make them compatible with suspenders if that's your style. Articulated knees won't inhibit your ability to pedal, and reflective accents enhance your visibility on dim, rainy days.
