Over pants

Any recommendations on over pants? I'm looking for easy on/off and waterproof.

Motorcyclegear.com has the best reviews. I've been wearing FirstGear HT and they're absolutely waterproof in all day frog choker heavy rain.

Olympia Airglide 3 Pants

Got them this summer for the Texas heat. Lots of ventilation and armor. Legs zip all the way up so i can easily gets them on and off wearing boots. They have a removable liner that I have not had to use.

I love my Olympia Airglide 3 Pants too. They have a waterproof liner which I've never tested.

I also have the Olympia Airglide pants and wore them on a 7 day, 2000 mile trip. The ventilation was great in the hot weather, and although I only hit about 30 minutes of rain, with the waterproof liner in they did well. Plus, like stated before, they are easy on/off.

+1 for the Firstgear HT. you always hear that nothing is truly waterproof, but I've put these overpants to the test here in the Pacific NW and they have been absolutely stellar.


Escape the cage!

Note to self: Never ride a motorcycle in stilettos and a miniskirt.

The Darien pants from Aerostitch worked well.

+I on the Olympia Airglide + the Moto X pants and really like both very easy to get on and off since they unzip all the way up and feel very well built.

I have the First Gear HT Mesh overpants. Good quality and the zip in waterproof liner really is waterproof. The mesh outer makes for great ventilation while the armor provides good crash protection. I've worn out two pairs of them.
