Last Monday I ordered new motorcycle pants from RevZilla and they arrived on Friday. My BMW pants are nice but they’re mesh, and even with a base layer plus jeans my legs would still end up cold. It’s a good time of year to buy winter gear…lots of clearance prices, the downfall is finding something available in your size.
I tried them on a few times but I’m not 100% happy yet. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m not used to such a bulky-feeling with the liner and hip armor. They also feel a bit large in the waist but I think I’m between the sizes they offer and going smaller would probably be uncomfortable. Both pants and liner have longer leg zippers meaning I can take them off over my boots which I couldn’t do with my other pants. And they do look nice with my jacket 😉
We’re planning to do a ride with some friends on Sunday so that will be a good test. I’m very happy with my jacket, helmet, gloves, and boots…I hope these pants will be the last major gear purchase for a while!
