Riding Pants Recomendations - August 16, 2008, 10:44 AM

I have two jackets I wear. An older thick padded touring jacket when its colder. And an armoured mesh jacket (back, shoulders, elbows, & forearms) w/ a removable liner. And of course boots, gloves, and full face helmet. I generally ride in jeans. If its cold I'll wear either my thick or thin bicycle tights under my jeans.

However I would like something more substantial/protective to wear over my jeans, with some armour or padding in the hips & knees. And zip up legs would be great to easily get out of them.

I know leather is best. But its hot, and about half the time I ride its to some place where I'm there for some time, or to work, or someones house, etc. And really don't want to spend hours w/ leathers on while I'm not riding.

It would be great to be able to get out of them and still be in jeans. Then put them back on when its time to ride again.

Anybody have any recomendations for something like that?

Thanks

I'm thinking hard about the darien pants from Aerostich. They have knee pads and I can have them install hip pads.

I'm in the same boat as you...I want something to be able to slip on over my jeans or shorts and be able to take off and pack away while when I'm in class or at work or wherever.

Joe Rocket Alter Ego pants. Come with padding, a removable liner, and a big ass vent you can zip off for hot days. I love em.

I think that's what i have. They are ok. My problem is i've lost a lot of
weight so they dont really fit me anymore - so i'll be looking at overpants again soon.


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.

I have the icon super duty or recon pants. heavy denim. haven't been down in them so i can't vouch for them there. comfy except sometimes smushes the boys when riding for a while.

Feel pretty thick though, like multi layers of denim. have them in camo.

I have a pair of Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 pants. They are "okay" I guess. They have padded hips and knees, but I don't think the mesh would offer much abrasion resistance. They are convenient, though. They slip on right over jeans without a problem.

i have the Cortech Mod jean. It's got leather panels under the denim for the ass and knee areas and CE-approved kneeguards that slip into a pocket inside. they're kind of hot off the bike, but I feel very safe in them and they look like regular jeans. I know it's not quite what you're looking for, but worth a look.

I tested my JR Phoenix pants at ~25 mph. Dime sized hole w/ about a quarter sized burned area around it, in the knee area.

I have the field sheer textile pants, very comfortable and you can adjust the knee pads. Keeps you warm though

Get underarmor not overpants. I use Tpro forcefield pants under shift kevlar lined jeans or my advsport Kevlar cargo pants.

Look at a set of textile convertible pants.

I have the Tourmaster Flex pants. They have removable textile panels to make them mesh pants, a quilted liner and a rain resistant liner (liners can be used together or separately in the pants).

Mens:
Tour Master Flex Textile/Mesh Motorcycle Pants :: New Enough

Great for year round use. I wore spandex bike shorts under the mesh when we were riding through SE US in late June a few years ago. Worked great! I've worn them with both liners over jeans and it's felt a bit bulky. I've also taken the liners out and worn them over a Gerbings heated pants liner. Didn't feel quite as bulky but works great for winter days.


Todd wears the Olympia Airglide pants:
Olympia Moto Sports - Menís Airglide 2 Mesh Tech Over Pant

The benefit of the Olympia over the Tourmaster is that Olympia comes in silver to help avoid the solar baking. They are mesh only with the knees and the butt being textile. Both pants have armored knees and come with hip pads.

A* Cargo pants - Street Cargo Pants - Alpinestars Official Store

What I've been using for 3.5 years and love em. Baggy enough to fit comfortably over jeans and excellent padding.
