Riding jeans/cargo pants....?

What brand and why? I'm not looking to break the bank but want some that I can trust. Thoughts?

I've used the Bilt Iron Workers cargo pants, they work fine in the summer. Crashed in them at low speed and they held up well. Just be warned that they run 1-2" small in waist sizing.

Recently, I've been wearing Duluth Trading Fire Hose pants. Love them. Not bike specific, but the material is great. Extra room in the right places, and the fire hose material is much more robust than just about any other cotton fabric I've seen, as the weave is designed for abrasion resistance.

I bought some Slyder Kevlar jeans and they seem to be well built. haven't tested them out yet( don't want to either). they have pockets in the knee so u can add padding .

Love my duluth fire house pants.

I'd like something better than regular Jeans... but commuting daily and riding once a weekend... I'm not even gonna bother looking at ~$150 pants. Or $100.

I've been meaning to try the Duluth (and carhartt) ones. Any place local that stocks them? Bass Pro?

I wear AlpineStar knee/shin guards under jeans every day... so built in armor isn't a necessity.

I have a pair of Red Route pants that I really like a lot, super comfortable with removable pads. went down in them once... ...and and they survived surprisingly well. I still wear them.
I got em at Cycle Gear off the clearance rack. I find some good stuff on that rack sometimes.

Put on a pair of cargo shorts over your leathers if all you need are extra pockets.

Reflex. I think they were under $25 at Motorcycles Unlimited. I'm a skinny 135lb guy... so the kids size (they only come kids and adult) work great for me. They are pretty smooth overall, so regular "straight cut" jeans fit over them. My brother has some similar, but different company and adult size. Either Fly or Fox.

Either have a sponsor order whatever you want to try, or go to a dirt bike shop to see if they have multiple brands to try out. Maybe Wild West? Cycle gear probably has a bunch too.

The solid plastic kills the radiant heat from my Buell's motor and also kills the wind... nice to not have flappy legs as well as freezing legs in the cold.

I rocked some Joe Rocket Kevlar jeans, I loved um, problem now is finding something in my size. I done blew up in the past 2 years.

Personally tho I'd rather have a cargo type pant, I have a bunch of those 5.11 cargo pants from my old job. Those pants are legit pocket wise an have some really cool features if ur a CHL guy. If those things came with a Kevlar riding protection I'd prolly on stock in that company by now.

Where do you get those shorts? What brand? I've wondered before, but honestly never thought about getting them, until you wrote it.

Just go to cycle gear or any bike shop that sells motorcross gear. Or just order them from alpinstars.
