Didn't think a simple question would field a bunch of retarded answers. Nevermind.
The easiest way is to put on some weight. Is there no drawstring or elastic? A good tailoring outlet could help you out of this dilema.
They are one size fits all.
A hair dryer works well, made of a Heat Shrink material.

Drink more beer.
I have a better idea. Don't ask dummies for answers.
I feel your pain. I have wide shoulders and a small waist so things hardly ever fit right. If the rain gear is just emergency type gear I would suggest a partial roll of duct tape. This could tighten them up and fix any rips or holes that you may get. Be very careful not to allow them to touch the exhaust. It makes a mess. You may even want to tape them down around the exhaust to prevent the chance all together..
The answer is "Frogg Toggs".
Who is going to notice the Victory label when it's pouring down rain?
You might want to direct your "Dummy" comment to Victory for selling rain pants that have no way of holding them up.
As far as any of them melting on your pipes, yep, that will happen.
I've found that the melted plastic on the pipes eventually flakes off over time.
Cold type oven cleaner takes that burny gunk off the pipes pretty well.
I got a suit also...Follow the link below for my solution; I have lost 10 lbs since trying it on, can't go smaller on top; leg length is good. http://www.duluthtrading.com/store/product/mens-side-clip-suspenders-duluth-trading-co-80025.aspx?kw=suspenders%20side%20clip&processor=content
Sorry to hear about your issue, Gambit. It's frustrating that they'd leave off a feature so simple. If you don't mind poking a few holes in the pants around the waistline, you could make a drawstring. Conversely, take the two ends of an old belt and attach them along the waistline somewhere far enough apart that by pulling them together you tighten the waist - and this method allows adjustment for weight gain or loss as well. The same thing can be accomplished less obtrusively with velcro.
I hope you find a way that works for you, brother.
Whoops. Didn't see that you had returned it. Sorry to bother you!
This isn't rain gear and doesn't really have anything to do with the OP's post, but I've been wanting to rant about this and this seems like a good thread to do it.
This has to take the cake in the "design flaw" department. This is the Freeze-Out one-piece base layer. It goes under the rest of your riding gear. You can't really tell from the picture, but there is no fly in this bodysuit. I think you know what I'm getting at here . . .
Problem solved by the dealer. They took it back and installed an adjustable timing wheel. I am going to buy another one from Renegade Classics to replace the one that blew out of my saddlebag. FYI: Lock that Vision saddlebag when in flight.
