Unicorn Pants Sought
« on: May 17, 2020, 09:58:32 AM »
Hi all, looking for some new riding trousers that sort of do everything  :001:
I currently have a couple of pairs of Alpinestars leathers and Klim Overland pants

I like leathers, they usually fit me well and are comfortable all day, they don't fare too well in rain or extreme heat though.
I like textiles, they're waterproof, and can be vented well, they never seem to fit me well though and often ride up and never feel that comfortable

Is there anything in between that are a good compromise for all day riding? I can live with getting a little wet or a little warm

As i said, unicorn pants  :038: but you never know, I may have missed something?

I'm pretty sure there aren't any motorcycle pants out there that cater for a 'horn' poking out.  :164: :008:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

With your list of requirements, I would try "Rubber Monthly" magazine.
Lots to choose from there.
So I'm told!

Yeah, I like Aerostich stuff, it's just the overall cost of getting it over to the UK that spoils it for us.

Maybe I should wait until our two great leaders finalise 'the best trade deal in history'?  :016:

I haven't tried the laminates, but I was disappointed with the new version of the Montreal - leaky jacket (although my previous Montreal jacket was also leaky) and leaky trousers (my previous Oxford trousers, Continental, were waterproof for several years). I went for Halvarsson this time round and haven't been disappointed. The trousers are a bit on the long side for me (how dare they extrapolate my leg length from my waist?) but everything falls into place when actually sitting on the bike.

In case you haven't seen this:

Some big discounts (if you're the right size?)
