special blend annex waterproof?

Anyone is wearing those? im kinda disapointed about its waterproofness (is that how you say that word?). After a few falls, my butt is all wet. its rated 10k/10k. is it normal? i bought them at the seasons' start and didnt wash them yet.

I wear the Annex as my primary set of pants and even after hard falls and butt slides they're still fine. There are times when i find ice frozen on the pants itself, but the insides never feel wet. the only time i'll feel wet is when snow gets inside the vents and melt inside, but that dries off quickly.

i think they're great pants compared to my DCs...

Full disclosure: I wear hip pads inside them so that may be why they feel dry. never wore them without hip pads off.

I wear them and have no problems...although the snow conditions I ride is far from wet. But all pants get wet if they're exposed to enough moisture.

goretex

go goretex, and you basically have to go swimming before your pants get wet. got some pants for sale if you want to check the classifieds or PM.
