Our Two Cents
New for 2021 is the NORU Taifu Pant. This is a solid textile pant with an integrated waterproof liner and a removable thermal liner. This pant will work great in mild to colder weather and wet weather. The pants include removable knee armor and hip armor is optional (see the links below to order).
For those that need an affordable pant to wear in the spring, fall and winter, this pant will do the trick. This is a solid textile pant made out of durable and abrasion resistant materials. These are made to be worn over light clothing or underwear. And although they aren’t set up as an overpant (with long side leg zips), you can probably wear them over your pants on the way to work, etc, but you might have to take off your boots to get them off.
The pants have an integrated waterproof liner installed between the outer shell and the inside mesh lining. The liner is fixed (not removable) and the pant doesn’t have venting so consider these for mild to cold weather use. In the summer, they’ll be cookers. For cold weather, they ought to do well to. They come with a medium-thickness removable liner that is quilted and lightly insulated.
Molded rubber knee armor units are included. The armor isn’t a brand name, but it is just like “standard” armor we’ve seen in many brands over the last several years. It feels good to me and I’m sure it is functional. NORU gives you pockets for the installation of hip armor too. Just take the link below to order.
Some basic features to note: The pants have stretch material over the knees and below the waist in back to make them fit better when you are in the saddle. There are nighttime reflective strips over the knees in front and around the leg end in back. There is a zipper at the leg end to help you get your foot through the pants. You get two front zippered hand pockets in front and the waist is adjustable for fit with the Velcro strap in front.
The pants have a short rear zipper connection that is compatible with other NORU jackets. Functionally, this pant is ideal when paired with the Taifu jacket (link below). With the full outfit, you’ll have a great low-cost full body suit for commuting or touring riding. :: Paul, 04-05-21
