Here’s my full review of the comfy, stylish Showers Pass Rogue Cycling Pants. I have been looking for some more stylish cycling clothes for quite some time. Full lycra/spandex is just not appropriate to meet for lunch or run errands. It hasn’t been easy to find pants that look good but are also functional. I want something quite styling – but on the other hand, I did not want to look like a Pearl Jam refugee in mountain bike attire either. This hasn’t been easy. However, I am really happy with the Showers Pass Rogue Cycling Pants. These pants are designed for men, but work well for women – check out this video review!
I first discovered these pants on Shower’s Pass website. I looked there because I really liked the Shower’s Pass cycling jacket I purchased earlier this year. I started by looking at the women’s pants.
Sadly, in the women’s line I found the same tapered, tight fitting, unflattering pants carried by almost everyone. However, I did check out the men’s selections and found the Showers Pass men’s Rogue Cycling Pants.

The Rogue cycling pants look like a pair of Dockers but have a lot of more give in the fabric and repel water. I’m not sure why Showers Pass only offers these in the men’s section, but luckily these pants fit my body well. (Note that the pics way above are NOT me. Joe wanted to take a pic of me wearing my Rogue Cycing Pants, but oddly, I did NOT want a photo of my butt on our blog!)
So here’s a hint – either search “Rogue CYCLING Pants“, or just use this handy link! (Again, note that the pirate lady is NOT me either.)
I gave my Rogue Cycling Pants a try yesterday and they worked! According to Joe, the Showers Pass company only rates Rogue Cycling Pants as 1 Star for Waterproof. Apparently this means: “1 STAR garments will at least be treated with a Durable Water Repellant (DWR) ﬁnish and/or have a tight weave and design that will provide some water repellency. Great for short rides in light/intermittent precipitation.”
However, my Rogue Cycling Pants kept me dry during a particularly wet ride, so I think that the Showers Pass description does not do them justice.
I like the reflective detail on the hem, which is a nice little safety feature. Here’s the back of my legs, showing the reflective detail:
The pants also have little studs for cinching the hem, to protect them from your bike chain. Here are the pants first uncinched, then cinched:
Here are the “technical specs” of my Showers Pass Rogue Cycling Pants
- Stretch fabric and gusseted crotch for pedaling ease
- Water resistant fabric for drizzly commutes
- Roll up reflective pant leg
- Hidden zippered pocket secures essentials
- Unique hidden hem cinch keeps pant legs away from greasy bike parts
- Utility loop to hang a lock or keys
Bottom Line on my Showers Pass Rogue Cycling Pants
For me the bottom line is that my Rogue Cycling Pants keep me dry and they look good! I could wear these anywhere. And they are comfortable. I highly recommend them for people who want style, function and comfort in their cycling gear.
