Women's Overpant Women's Overpant

The Overpant


Sometimes an easy extra leg layer is necessary. Cyclocross warm-ups. Mid-winter layering. Cold weekday commutes. With a full-length side zip, our new softshell Overpant couldn’t be easier to deploy. We incorporated a windproof and water-resistant softshell front panel using the same versatile eVent 3-layer construction as our Softshell Jacket. Paired with a Primaloft performance yarn backer, the Overpant is an exceptionally breathable option with a 10k waterproof membrane to ward off all but the most torrential downpours.

For the less exposed rear panel, the Overpant deploys the same comfortable and compressive Thermoroubaix Power fabric found in our Thermal Bib Tight. Put everything together and the Overpant is aimed at a better riding experience with a focus on wearability and comfort. This is a piece that can work as a stand-alone against cool conditions or layered for winter warmth.
