2008 Model No Longer Available
Gore Bike Wear ALP-X GT Pant - Men's - 2008 BCS
Don't let a little precip prevent you from getting out -- pull on the GORE Bike Wear Men's Alp X Bike Pants and get bomber protection from rain, sleet, and hail. GORE Bike Wear made these pants using its Gore-Tex Paclite material, which is super lightweight, packable, breathable, and guaranteed to keep you dry.
The slim-fit Alp X Pants are pre-shaped to a biker's posture and have reinforcement in the seat to resist wear. A high-cut back helps stop puddles from splashing your under layer, and the elasticized waist with a drawcord lets you get a comfy fit regardless of your base layers' thickness. Adjustable leg cuffs mean these pants go on over your shoes and ensure you don't get these pants caught in your chain. Take off the Alp X Pant and stuff into its own back pocket to carry should the weather improve.

I'm a female that has kinda a boy's body frame (no hips). They don't have any pants in my size for women left. Could I get away with the men's small? I am 5'9 130lbs...

At 5'11" and 215 lbs, I decided to try these rain pants for cycling and maybe
cross-country skiing. Normally, an XL works fine. These were advertised as XXL,
so I figured they should be a generous fit. Absolutely wrong. They were tighter
than any other brand's XL, and more like a L. On the other hand, they were a
couple of inches too long. I think they would have been great for someone 6'4"
and 190 lbs. Quality of construction seemed excellent, but my body shape just
doesn't conform to the NFL wide receiver mold.
