Bering Textile Lady Fit Trousers Review Update

By Sharon Parker

Update Review - August 2014

I originally reviewed these trousers purely as a pillion rider. As stated as a pillion they remained waterproof for over 7 years. So on the strength of that once I passed my CBT and began riding my own bike I purchased another pair of the exact same trousers. I believed they would keep my dry for many a year to come. 

However this was not the case. It would appear that being a pillion and therefore being protected from the worst of the weather by the rider made a massive difference to these trouser's ability to remain waterproof. Also the sheer amount of time I have spent on the bike has increased since riding my own bike so this should also be taken account.

The Bering Lady Fit trousers as a rider have remained waterproof for only one year or in terms of mileage for a distance of 8000 miles.

I do understand we cannot expect these garments to remain waterproof for ever. The fibres rub together as we walk or move around and break down but I would expect, or at least hope, one could have more than just a year. So as a pillion rider yes these trousers were brilliant. As a rider exposed to the full force of the wind and rain they were a disappointment. They leaked at the crotch, the usual place trousers usually first spring a leak. 

So as a rider I will have to reduce the 10 out 10 star rating that I gave them as a pillion rider.

Rider rating - 5 out of 10 ... nice fitting pants but they do not remain in my opinion waterproof for long enough. One year is simply not good enough.
