Below is the size chart we developed for this pant. The waist size is listed as a range. The upper end of the range is measured with the front Velcro closure opened up. You will be able to snug the pant down in size about 3”.
These pants are designed as an overpant, but they are not sized as an overpant so you need to measure while wearing the clothes you intend to wear under the pants and choose the size accordingly. The inseam on these pants is about 32” across the size range which is a little shorter than normal when you get into the larger sizes. The rise of the pants makes up for some of this shortage, but when you’re in the saddle the rise won’t be able to make up the room.

Our Two Cents
The Noru Raiu Waterproof Overpant is a new style for Fall 2021.
This overpant has full length zips on the side for easy entry even when you’ve got your boots on. The hip armor pocket is over the very top of the zipper, but the pocket connects with hook and loop so it is easily removed. Armor is included in the knees, but the hip armor pocket is empty so if you wanted to upgrade we would suggest either the SAS-Tech or D3O armor listed below.
The waterproofing is baked into the shell on this one so there is no venting. The full length zip is two-way but the waterproof flap will probably prevent any real air circulation through there. There is a removable thermal liner that has a circumference zip at the waist as well. One call out here, normally with two way zippers on the outside riders are hoping to reach into their pockets on the under garments they are wearing but here you will run into 2 things, the pocket for the hip armor and the thermal liner. Both are removable but just keep it in mind if you wanted to have access that it doesn’t go through with everything installed. There is reflective material on the knee and cuff as well. The waist has a hook and loop adjustment that will allow about 3” of tightening so these should be an easy fit.
These pants should work well for cool to cold weather since there is no venting options. But if you’re looking for an overpant for a cool weather ride these are a fantastic option, and at this price they’re hard to beat! :: Mike, 11-1-21
