Our Review - Inov-8 Racepant:
The original Inov-8 Racepant proved hugely popular and the slight tweaks to the new version should prove to make a great pair of waterproof trousers even better. Inov-8 have increased the waterproof level to 13,000 HH while retaining the fully taped and breathability has risen to 20,000 B-1 ensuring you wanted get wet from sweating inside as it moves out through the material.
Comfort has also increased with even more stretch to the fabric (a feature that was really appreciated by our customers in the original version) which means full range of unrestricted movement. The inside of the trousers has also been redesigned to be softer against the skin and the materials have generally seen improved durability.
The Racepant features knee length zips for easy on/off even over shoes making them ideal for quick changes when needed in changeable weather. All in all the Racepant are a great training and racing trouser which meet the requirements of mandatory kit but are equally at home on fast and light hiking trips.
