686 Gore-Tex Utopia 2022 - 2019 Review by The Good Ride

686 Utopia Gore-Tex Pant Video And Written Review

The 686 Utopia Gore-Tex pants are made for those riders who see a lot of stormy days or live in a wetter climate. They have nice insulation in the seat going down to mid-thigh and have a merino wool liner around the waist. These seem like a very thought through and well-constructed pant, with things like the boa hole in the gator, and RFID blocking inner pocket so your credit cards don’t get messed up with your ticket scan, and large kick panels in the legs. The waist seemed to be a bit bigger than normal, so you could cinch it down, or size down. But other than that the Utopia pants have a nice tailored but relaxed fit with room for layering as well.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  No one is perfect and we do make money from the “Where To Buy” links below, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.

A big thanks to Gravity Sports at Mt Bachelor for giving us access to this.
