Ride Harbor 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The Ride Harbor Pant has something that we at The Good Ride are pretty fond of and that is Cocona. Cocona, from what I understand is the integration of a coconut based fiber that is integrated with the material so it performs differently than a laminate but it’s also not quite an insert.
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.
Size Tried: Medium
Weight: 195 lbs,
Upper Thigh 24.5”
Middle Thigh 22”
Turn On’s: Size M pants that fit well around my thighs, Riding with Friends, Open Roads, new gear and especially my wife.
Turn Off’s: M Pants that I can’t get up over my thighs, traffic, and people who can’t park inside the lines.
Fit: I like this fit and found it to have a little room to layer up underneath but at the same time it doesn’t feel baggy for me.
Construction: It’s very hard to do an apples to apples outerwear test so I’m not 100% on this but all I know is I have used a few Cocona jackets and I’m thoroughly impressed with their durability, waterproofing, and breathability. Also, it’s a 3.5 layer so some areas of the pant have 4 layers that get the most weather and most have 3.
Insulation/Warmth: No real warmth here. It’s just an outer shell.
Waterproofing/Breathability: 20k waterproofing/ 15K Breathability is pretty impressive with 3.5 layers and this is just a little behind many Gore-Tex Pants when it comes to waterproofing and breathability. It can easily handle wet snow and isn’t bad if you come across the occasional rainy day.
Overall: When you think of ride you think of snowboarding hard goods and they aren’t as well known for making outerwear but all in all you have a pretty good pant here.
