I left office late the other day. Even though it was warm in the morning and during the day the evening chill was already in full effect. Normally this sort of weather won’t feel cold, the Rev’it Ultimate pants are fairly warm even without both liners. However my legs felt cold, something wasn’t right.
The front part of each of the pant leg features an air vent. They are 10″ (26 cm) long vents across the top of each thigh. Unfortunately that day I forgot to zip them back up before I’d started moving.
While stopped at a light I tried to zip them back up. Unsuccessfully. The light went green and I had to roll on. I tried to zip them up a couple of times on each of the subsequent stop light stops. Unsuccessfully. Then as I was riding on a freeway I decided to give it a last try. And, oh miracle, it zipped up just fine. Apparently the zipper is meant to be operated when you legs are bent as opposed to when you are almost in a standing position.
I am not sure if this feature is there by design or just coincidental. Which ever the case might be it adds up to all the other nice things the Rev’it Ultimate pants have to offer.
