But if you slide down an asphalt road you are going to lose several square feet of skin because there is absolutely NO abrasion resistance there at all. ATGATT just isn't that tough. Sorry ill climb down off my soap box now.Not mc specific, but I love my Carhartt double-front canvas work pants with added knee pads. The pads don't hold there position as I would like, but they damn sure come in handy around the house and garage. Plenty of crotch room when riding. Will try different pads in next pair.
Oh, I think they were around $45 IIRC.
Not sure about that. Two reviews of these referred to deflecting chainsaws. These are heavy-weight duck fabric probably similar, I think, to Duluth's Firehose pants. Ultimately, it's an individual decision. For me, I strive for complete protection should I trip and fall in the parking lot walking to my bike. Anything thereafter is on me.But if you slide down an asphalt road you are going to lose several square feet of skin because there is absolutely NO abrasion resistance there at all.

They have an extra layer on the front with "sawdust holes" at the bottom. You can buy foam knee pads (~15usd) and roll them up and slide them through the holes. Mine shift to the inside of the leg too much to expect much crash protection. Next time I want to try some mc-specific pads or larger ones or get my tailor to tack them in place. Apparently, these are highly recommended by the stunting crowd. Again, great around the house and garage regardless of riding use. Roomy crotch is a BIG plus on the bike, too.Do those Carharts come with pads, or pouches for pads? That's interesting, I've never seen that setup before. Typically people will just wear dirtbike knee shin guards or Bohn Armor or something under those types of pants, if they want impact protection.
Hmm, interesting. Never heard of these before. Made in Australia?I wear Rhok jeans.. comfortable and made to protect you from the slide.
bonus is they look like regular jeans so when you are off the bike you blend in.
