What Pants are you wearing to ride?

the inlaws asked me what I want for Christmas, I don't need anything, but have always wanted some protective pants for riding.

I know there are jeans out there with padding or protection, I know about leather pants. Please give me some alternatives from those options. Thanks !

Some fine chaps always set a rider apart

Those Komine pants are probably the most comfortable armoured pant I ever bought, and will do so again if I start road riding again one day.

They're a little too "skinny jean" for me.....

(That is until the Donsy "Down Under" Challenge gets officially underway on Monday...)

I recently picked up a pair of Alpinestars new Riffs. CE rated kevlar jeans with soft armour panels. Comfy as all hell and worth every penny. I compared them to the Dainese jeans and the amount of additional protection in the Alpinestars made it no contest - especially with respect to the amount of kevlar around the hips and ass.

Do you mean thicker as in weight of thread or thicker as in amount of cover?

As to weight of thread - unsure but I doubt the Dainese would be thicker than the Alpinestars kevlar/'techdemin' they've developed.

In the amount of cover? Definitely. The Dainese has a 2" wide strip along the base of the butt cheeks. The Alpinestars has kevlar lining from the waistline all the way down to the mid-thigh.

I use these when it's not too hot out. They actually have very good venting too.
