M's Fat Jack Pant
Technical and robust, our Fat Jack pant was designed for the epic fat-bike ride on miles of winter single track. Don’t have snow? Don’t fret, the Fat Jack performs in dirt and on pavement just as well. Our stretch, water resistant double weave fabric with durable canvas leg patches deliver the workman’s pant in a technical package. Reflective accents add night time security. The side leg pockets store all of your goodies securely behind a reflective bound zipper or open them up for full upper leg ventilation.
Bottom line, the Fat Jack did exactly what I was hoping it would: provide a warm, tough, water resistant external layer for fat biking expeditions. But as a bonus, with the level of insulation that this pant provides, I could easily see using it in both spring and fall weather as well, simply by dropping the thermal liner that I used beneath it for winter fat biking.
Wore it for the first time on my ride, it was cold 40F and felt nice and warm. I got a medium (5'8" 170lbs) and it fits great, a little snug on the thighs but very stretchy and comfortable overall.
Love the way they fit! Low rise waist, comfortable, pockets, and narrow ankle to avoid the chain. Can’t ask for more.
In Western Colorado a cloudy, breezy 50deg day is much cooler than a sunny 50deg day! My usual cool weather riding pants are a 20 year old pair of multi-sport tights that have seen better days. They are either too warn or don't provide enough insulation.
My first outing with the Fat Jack pants was on a cool, breezy day and I could not have been more impressed! Temperature and moisture management were amazing!
The fit & finish was spot on and the comfort was truly surprising. I did expect some discomfort in the groinal department where many seams are joined but the CR designers have worked in a feature that relieves any pressure in the sensitive area. I wear 2 hr. liners on all of my rides.
I did wear (and will continue to do so) a Velcro strap on my drive side cuff to keep the pants free of drivetrain goop.
I know, kind of OCD, but I will wear these pants to work at the bike shop (Over The Edge in Fruita) and I do take some pride in my appearance!
Thanks to the designers at CR for another fine product.
I've worn them twice. The first time it was a little too warm outside. 40 and sunny. I live in Colorado so 40 and sunny riding a mountain bike is like 85 in Miami. But, they are definitely going to do the job. I was down to a short sleeve shirt and I could feel the cool air on my arms, face and chest. I couldn't feel any wind or chill or any weather whatsoever on my legs. The pants feel a bit heavy to me. However, this is the first time I have worn "pants" and not shorts with tights on a ride. I bought size small. I will need a belt and the length for me is long. Overall, I am stoked with the pants and will wear them all winter. And the good news for me is the fit will allow a base layer. That's a huge plus+++. We ride in 10-15 degree temps here.
For reference I am 34/32 Levi's 501. Size large is perfect. Material is stretchy for effortless peddling but has proven stout enough for one crash and several scrapes and rubs on trees and sage brush. I was a little concerned about the fit at the ankle, not being tapered, but this hasn't been an issue. 0 chain sucks in over 75 miles of pedaling. Upper leg and butt is snug on the quads, but not too snug. Only those who have Alpine Ski Legs will find this though. Chicken legs will fit fine. Plenty warm for cold night rides, 34°, not too hot for daytime riding, 50°. This is the pair to ride with. The look has a casual vibe about it.
