Our Two Cents
The Noru Boken Adventure Waterproof pant is designed for the adventure/touring rider that is looking for a waterproof pant that won’t break the bank.
The Boken has an integrated waterproof liner that sits between the external shell and the internal comfort liner (and removable thermal liner but more on that in a second). This means that the vents on the thighs bring air across the waterproof liner, but not directly to the body. The pants do come with a full length thermal liner as well. This liner zips in around the waist and has a snap on either side near the calf.
The pants have two loops at the rear to mate with the matching Noru Boken Adventure Waterproof Jacket and a short connection zipper for pairing with some other jacket options in the Noru line. The short connection zipper also mates to the optional Noru Adventure Bib & Brace (see related products below). This Bib & Brace zips on and then attaches through hoops at the front of the pants for secure suspenders. Below these connections is a large accordion stretch panel for comfort. More accordion paneling can be found above the knees. There are two hook and loop adjusters at the waist that allows you to cinch it down by about 2.5” per side. At the cuff, there is another hook and loop adjuster with a zippered gaiter behind the storm flap. Opening this up will allow the pants to fit over larger boots.
The pants have CE approved armor in the knees and there are pockets for optional hip armor if you wanted to upgrade (see related products below). There are reflect strips at the knees and on the storm flap near the cuff for nighttime visibility. Two zippered hand pockets give you some secure storage capability as well.
The Noru Boken Adventure Waterproof pants are a good option for warm to cold weather riding. If you’re looking for hot weather gear check out the Noru Ganjo line which has almost the same features in a mesh shell without the waterproofing. Good entry level adventure/touring gear is hard to find, and at this price point, Noru is tough to beat in terms of features. :: Mike, 08/11/2022
