Looking for suggestions on riding pants
« on: February 12, 2016, 06:47:56 pm »
Hi everyone :018:

Just looking for some suggestions on mesh armored riding pants. Can be overpants or not-ordered 3 pair online(Joe Rocket's and Tourmaster) and they were either too big, too small, too long(mine is 30" inseam) or snaps that won't stay closed :083:.
Tired of paying return shipping...

Anyone out there around 5'9" 180lbs that likes their COOL mesh pants(live in AZ so I need to keep it cool as possible)?

Thanks in advance

Ride safe(and fast)

Hey dlrph, Being from the Great White North and riding in Arizona every year I cannot help with a recommendation as far as textile perf pants are concerned. [For the same reasons you mention] My strategy for AZ is start my day at 0 dark thirty and get out of the valley before sunrise. That and "elevation is your friend" are the only things I have to say about riding in AZ.

If I were an AZ resident and had to ride there on a regular basis my choice would be Vanson perforated leathers. http://www.vansonleathers.com/prod-Technical_Sport_Rider_Pants____PROPerf-194.aspx

I have a pal in Casa Grande who struck a Javelina at night at speed in jeans and it was not pretty.

Posting this article on riding gear and hoping it helps http://www.roadsafety.mccofnsw.org.au/a/88.html but it sounds like you are cognizant of the need for good rding gear and IMO Perf ain't it.

Best of luck and enjoy your weather now cause I think it is going to be a hot summer.

Before switching to Aerostich gear, I used to wear Olympia mesh pants. They are hemmable. They are cut like jeans and are very comfortable.

Revzilla has the outgoing model on closeout.
